Ok, so maybe the drought wasn't quite broken.
I gave up on the jacket. It never even got completely pinned on to the fabric. The dress has stalled half-way round the neck line. Those who know me well know that I can produce multiple excuses out of thin air... but this is not about excuses.
I have discovered that I am making something much bigger than any jacket or dress, and it has been exhausting!
I have missed sewing. It is good for me - doing something constructive with my time. I am not sure what I will start sewing, as my body is changing daily at the moment. I may even start sewing mini clothes.
For now, I will enroll myself back into classes. It will give me some dedicated time each week to get me back into creating. I will let you know what I decide to make.
