Somewhat later in the afternoon I did decide to at least get some doll clothes cut out. I grabbed my order book to make the super fuzzy details of a doll clearer, so I had a clue of what to cut out, and realized I had to rebuild a youth doll for that one. Nope, can't do it. Not just this minute. Too meh for that. I probably still could have cut out the clothes, but I could no longer talk myself into it. Another doll I have on deck I am still waiting for some custom fabric to come in from Spoonflower. Can't do that one. *sigh* and the last one I was just going to do the single doll... and I didn't have enough brown fabric. Maybe I was not meant to work yesterday.
When Ethan got home from work I said I might have to talk myself into going to Joann's after supper. I actually managed to do it, even though I was meh and just wanted to go to bed. I was not super tired, at least not normal feeling tired, but I didn't want to do anything. It was rough. The seasons might be starting to change though and I get seasonal depression. Maybe that is my issue. Well, too bad, I have things that I need to accomplish in the next 8 weeks and then I can slack off for a couple of months if I need to. Then it will be time to start making and putting away dolls for Breyerfest again, lol. The cycle of dolls. Anyway, I managed to get to Joann's and I saw this lovely sight.
It was a whole row of glitter fabrics, some of them are color-shift. It was glorious! I texted a photo to Maire as well and she asked me a bunch of things I couldn't answer (like, what the material was, I should know to check by now) and we chatted fabric for a few minutes. I really wish I had a use for stretching color-shift glitter fabric. But I don't. At least nothing comes to mind right away.
Yesterday I also got a Facebook message with a challenge on what I should make for my next doll. I was not sure it was something I could work out, but you guys know I love a challenge! So this is the only hint you get as to what I am going to work on next. I have a pretty good plan in place I think. And I am pretty sure I can pull this off. And it should be really cool if I can!I am tired this morning, but maybe not as tired as I was yesterday morning. I think I actually slept a lot more last night than the night before. I'm a bit peeved because my schedule got changed again yesterday, so today I am starting in a new class, which can be tricky two weeks into the school year. I looked at the roster and I don't think I even really know any of the kids in the class, which will make it even more challenging to work in there. But it's Environmental Science and I helped teach that class for 2 years. I hope it is the same book. But I really doubt that it is since this is an inclusion class. We'll see though. So I went from meh to a small amount of first-day-of-school nerves again. I'd like to be past this now.
Today is laundry day so I have no idea if I can talk myself into working on any doll things or not. I do really need to get my stock of chaps and cross country vests build up some more. Maybe I can work on making those happen.
