Thanks for all of the lovely comments, prayers, and thoughts. I think that I made a good decision eve though it doesn't feel like it at the moment. When you love someone and they love you back, it is even harder to walk away. You second guess yourself, feel like you are not giving it your all, and whatever other rush of emotions that come your way. In any event, I feel stronger for sharing and even comforted by the flood of support. Thank you.
In an attempt to keep things crafty, I'm wearing another FO that I never managed to post about. It's not my favorite, even though I love the fabric. Still, it's a comfy top to wear on a Friday when I'm at work instead of hiding under my covers in bed.
Pattern: Simplicity 2898 - long sleeve version
Fabric: Delia Berry from Fabric.com I purchased 1.5 yards
Size: 10-22. I believe I cut a size 16.
This just didn't come out like I planned. I serged over spots that I didn't mean to (this was with my old serger) and pushed my awl through the fabric in others. lol. Still, I have managed to wear this to work several times and not one weird look among the office bunch. lol.
I am close to separating for the sleeves on the circle shrug. I think I'll probably end up adding another one of these projects to my queue if it comes out as wearable as I suspect.
More Sewing FOs by weekend's end....
