Life & Sewing

Hi everyone

Well it has been stupidly crazy around here lately.  My DH went on 3rd shift.  Now that takes some getting used to.  He is not having trouble with the sleeping part as I have the room really dark thanks to a couple cheap bamboo mats over the windows.  He can sleep almost anytime anyway.
The biggest problem is me trying to figure out when to do my stuff without causing issues.  I am finding that if I get up when texts me to say he is out of work I can do the noisy stuff then.  When he leaves for work I am not wanting to do any of that stuff.  I am fixing dinner and making enough he can have it when he gets up.
Now on the positive side, I am sleeping like a log.  Taking my half out of the middle.  Then again so is he.
Sewing is taking a big confusing hit.  I spend most of my time in the computer and sewing room.  But I am kinda lost.  Last month I said I was going to make some organizers.  I DID!!!!  Ahhhhh  I made one.  Now I have to enlarge it and make one the way I want.  I used the Lazy Girl pattern for the Suzi Purse Insert.  WAY WAY WAY TO SMALL.  Here are pictures so you can see what I have done with mine.

I am in the process of cutting out pieces for a new bag called "Olivia"  by ChrisWDesigns.  This is a really nice looking bag.  I can't wait to get it finished so I can show all of you.  You can visit her site and see this pattern and others here.  Check it out here.  
This from the one who doesn't do patterns so ya know I was impressed.

  1. I feel for you and trying to work around the different schedules. My hubby struggles with insomnia some, so at times he sleeps during odd hours. I always feel like I can't get my stuff done when he's sleeping during the day and I'm home.
    I like your purse organizer. I've made a few of the long continuous pocket types that you just roll up and it's ok, but I've been thinking about trying this style... (though like you said, it would have to be bigger for me too).
    I'm anxious to see your version of the Olivia bag. I might make one sometime in the future, but have too many things going now as it is, so it will have to wait.
