This past weekend hubby was gone enjoying a ski-weekend with the guys. Unfortunately - or fortunately depending on how you look at it - that meant he was gone this year for Valentine's Day.
Should I admit it? Yes, I think I will. I was actually excited. That meant three whole days devoted to me! Three whole days to sew to my little heart's content.
I picked up a half dozen free DVD rentals from the library with plans to hibernate in my sewing studio playing movies and completing multitudes of projects. Oh! the possibilities!
Ha! Only in my dreams.While I did enjoy a nice romantic solo dinner of lobster tail, veggies and wine followed by a decadent dark chocolate truffle (my honey hid a box underneath my pillow before he left) all the sewing just didn't happen as planned.
All that time, and just one little project is underway. The Guy Laroche jacket, Vogue 1143. I've lightened the photo so you can see some of the details. The fabric is a black Sophia double knit from Fabric.com.
It's rated advanced - I suspect it's because of those darn little underarm gussets - but it's coming along nicely.
