...walked through wheat fields.
And so far today, I've sewn
a little zippered pouch (using one of many useful tutorials on the interweb).
There are a number of tweaks to be made. There are also zips to buy before said tweaks can be made; which means the final product won't be ready for a while yet.
I bought 6 yards of the outer fabric for $1/yard 3 years ago, and I am still using it for mock-ups; that's what I call a good buy. I don't have much left so I'll be on the lookout for something to replace it in a short while.
It seems my work schedule has changed. I read research papers and make notes in the day then write and run my programs late at night. I dunno if this is the best way but it seems to be working for me. Unfortunately I have some mornings like today where I can't face reading, so it's nice to be able to whip something up and quickly. It's a boost and gives me a mini sense of accomplishment, even if this is not the time to add notches to my craft board.
