"..Oh what can it mean to a day dream believer..."

Yes, I admit I'm a day dreamer...especially when I'm at work doing things I would rather not do...actually hold the phone; I'm pretty sure I day dream even when I'm doing things I like to do! It's just so counterproductive.

I day dream about lots of things, but mostly I day dream about fabric and what I could do with it. Currently I am without my sewing machine (insert frown). We moved to a new place this past weekend and when we were putting the desk together which was supposed to be my very own sewing desk, it broke. So without a place to sew I now just think about it a lot. I think about how I'm going to tackle this dress for which I have this fabric for (the yellow one). Or what I'm going to do with this fabric, and this fabric, and this fabric. And how on earth am I going to finish my first quilt which I have blogged about below? How long is it going to take me to finish my hexagon quilt which I'm doing all by hand? What should I make for Christmas gifts this year? (I'm determined to do handmade gifts this year). When am I going to find the time to turn a pair of Phil's old madras shorts into a skirt for myself? (not maternity)

Then there's a whole pile of  "I want to learn how to do that..." projects.
- bias strip skirt (but in an adult version)
- duvet cover
- pin cushion
- gathered clutch
- installing a zipper
- how to sew with a pattern (this pattern and this pattern)
- french seams
- how to sew with knits
(ok, so after reading this list it sounds like I need to take a clothing cunstruction class...anyone know of any good ones in the Boston area?)

Oh and then there's all the wonderful fabric I dream about owning....

But honestly there could be worse things than having a broken desk and day dreaming about beautiful things right?

Pretty pretty pretty. You could be day dreaming about ugly things, but I don't know if that's possible.
