I was bitten by a bug. A sewing bug. And it's catastrophic to my family when I do. I zone out and hibernate in the sewing room. This was a long bug. I was bit bad. But whew! I'm over it now. I'm sure it will be back. I still have some pjs to sew and Halloween costumes and spring outfits and flannel shirts. But for now, the machines are clean and oiled and the fabric stash, trim stash, elastic stash, and thread is down to dress size quantities. No more little remnants are hanging around.The first sign the bug had bit was when Christmas was mere days away and I needed to get nightgowns and pjs done. The nightgowns were a success considering they went on as soon as they were opened. I learned NOT to use tulle on nightgowns. I've already had to cut the tulle off of one of them and the ribbon on the hem off another. They love the twirly princess effect so I'll research next year for a filmy something that has more body and strength. This was the last year of doing pjs for the older kids.
