Well, I won't be sewing for a while....

Our basement flooded tonight. My sewing room was/is in the basement.

Two hours ago it was full of fabric, a cutting table, a bed, a big "L" desk with two sewing machines and a serger....

Now it looks like this:

I haven't forgotten!

Things have just been VERY busy. October through mid-November was a BUSY month. We went on a trip to Walt Disney World, I had to sew presents for my son's October birthday, make a newborn stash for a friend's Halloween baby, and I had to sew costumes for a friend's mid-November performance. I also stitched up over a DOZEN bamboo fitteds, 6 PUL covers, some wipes, and some hemp OBV-topped doublers for another friend.

I had to put the SSC on the back-burner for a month, but I did do some pattern revisions and partial mock-ups during that time.

Today I cut out the fabric for the first "final" adult version. The one I'll be taking step-by-step photos of while sewing for the photo tutorial element of that pattern. I still need to "digitize" my template pieces (which are cut out of paper grocery bags currently) too though. :)
