Violated my Fabric Rule

I know, I know. I've been very bad about updating my blog. I finished up all my paralegal classes and have now moved on to the internship. Week 3 starts tomorrow and I'll be getting close to being halfway done with that at the end of the week. That is pretty much all that has been going on.

So for more interesting things. Between G and I visiting the Faribo Woolen Mills and Lillies, I seriously violated my fabric rule. No fabric unless absolutely necessary. I now have a large pile of wool and linen, none of which has been even touched on top of what I've already got. The reason for this is I have had to completely remake two of TJ's shirts (that I'm being paid to make) because the pattern wasn't clear on if there were seams included or not, so I added a generous seam allowance that I told the shirt had. They were two sizes too big for him. I had to take two completely apart and stop construction on a third to make them smaller. I will have the last cuff on the last shirt and do the button holes today on them. They'll be shipped to Pennsic once I'm done. Then I have another commission for him which will be making some square silk veils into oval silk veils. At least I'm being paid.

There has been little or no progress on my large embroidery project because of those commissions, but I am planning on getting back to it soon, at least for about a half hour a day. You'd be surprised what you can do in 30 minutes.
