Inspiration leading to UBER frustration...

Do you ever start a project and then part way through you are so sick of it you can hardly force yourself to finish?

Well welcome to my world (at least for this weeks project).

I fell in love with this Anthropolgie lovely about 3 months ago. I cannot afford this gem (I say gem because I am pretty sure that diamonds and rubies cost similar to its price tag). However, the longer I stared at it the more enamored I became. So from those long hours of drooling in front of my computer I came up with the idea that I could make it (HA!). The blue prints were laid in my brain and I would not stop thinking about it.

This week I took the plunge. I got the fabric. I cut it up and I started sewing. And sewing. And Sewing. And seam ripping. And sewing. You would think after all that I would be done, but you would be wrong...I am still trudging away at my Anthropologie lovely. I would say currently I am 1/2 way there...(sigh...). But at this moment I could throw in the towel and say "Peace Out" without reservation. Which leads me to why I am posting this, I need duvet support. Hopefully by posting about this project it will keep me motivated to continue on. (Fingers crossed and prayers sent up!)
Maybe, this post will save my brown scraps of jersey from making it into the garbage or re-purposed into another project. After all, the greater the challenge the greater the reward right?


  1. Oh are brave! That is a HUUUUGE project!! Can't wait to see how it turns out!!

  2. Well as you can see, I am still not done with it. I kind of took a blogging hiatus! I need to get back on the band wagon! :)
