When you are a kid, the summer holidays seem like they last forever. Long days of endless sunshine, playing out in the street with your friends and winding up your parents as they count down the days until they can get some rest and send you back to school.
As a new teacher at the end of her first year on the job, I envisaged my summer holidays to be reminiscent of those as a child – minus the winding up my parents but because I am all grown up and have my own house now – although I think Mr Hugs and Kisses is getting a little sick of me now! Haha.
Thinking that the summer would last forever I set myself a sewing challenge to make a minimum of three garments per week, totaling 18 overall. I figured this would ensure I was exceedingly productive with my sewing over the holidays, especially as over the last few months before breaking up I hadn’t set foot in my sewing room due to lack of time and energy.
I must have been having a crazy moment.
Well, I have exactly one week left before I get back into the routine of work.
How am I getting along I hear you ask?
I have made a grand total of 10 garments so far (yes I know there are only six in the pictures but some garments were in the wash!)
I am in the final stages of creating another pdf pattern (I am not giving anything away though)
And I have done a little bit of pattern testing – but I am under strict instructions from the creator to keep this secret
So overall I HAVE been rather productive, and the pattern testing and pdf pattern weren’t exactly planned. But with 18 garments as my target number I still have a long way to go, and only a week to complete them in!!!
Can it be done?
I am starting to panic.
Some words of encouragement please people
How productive has everyone else been over the summer?
