Confession time

Okay. I'm terrible at planning things ahead.

 When I decided to join the SFC-Challenge, I was sure I'd be able to create a dress from start to finish in two weeks. But then, I got a lot of homework. And a few days ago I became ill. I have a terrible cold at the moment. I feel tired, weak and grumpy all day long. I can't smell anything and when I eat I can't taste a thing. It is terrible. My boyfriend is in Czech Republic for a ww2 re-enactment event for 11 days so I can't talk to him at all which doesn't make me feel better either. I did manage to find a photo of him on the page of the event. Oh, I miss him and love him so much!  I will see him next week. Can't wait!

 Doesn't he look dashing? source

The dress is really nearly finished. I just need to work on the zipper, side seam, sleeves and hem and then it'll be finished. I really like how it looks on the outside when I try it on but I hate what it looks like from the inside. The neckline is too ugly for words, I am not even going to show you. I have been sewing for 2 years now. Someday I want to make a living out of it and then, I manage to sew a terribly ugly neckline. Not very good for my 'sewing-confidence'. I'm a little fed up with the dress but I want to finish it anyhow. Nobody will look at the inside of the neckline so I'll just have to ignore it.

I will focus on my homework now during the next few days. The 2nd exam is approaching and I'm working on a blazer which is a lot of work. I do not know when I'm going to continue to finish the dress but I'll post about it once the job is done. I'm a bit disappointed about the fact I was not able to finish it in time. I would have loved to add photos of the finished project in the Flickr group and then they could be included in the video.. There is always a thing that goes wrong or comes inbetween. That, and I have to plan things ahead a little better. Anyone has some good advice ? Let's hope I'll feel better soon. There is so much I want and need to do.

That's all for now.

With love,

Everything will be fine, my dear!
I'm also horrible at planning, trust me... And an other one who's at the Czech Fury, lot's of my friends are over there and I wish I was also there but it will be for next time.

I agree with Emma. All will be fine!!! <3
And raising my hand at being horrible with planning things properly. But, I've lately been writing things down I need to get done in a week, and slowly working on things when I can. Like with sewing, I'll work on small hand-sewing things when I'm in the car, or waiting somewhere.
But everything will work out for ya, I'm sure of it!

Oh, sweet Jip, don't you feel so terrible. Don't worry, you are not the only one that plans and than sometimes cannot keep with it. It happen to me for the challenge Spring for Cotton! I planned to sew a shirt for my little boy and so many things got in the way that sadly I couldn't make it. It's very upsetting but happens! I'm much older than you and I'm still learning how to manage my time properly. It's a learning process and not always we will be able to conclude our plans. Next time will be better! ;-)
