So I was pretty happy with myself for sitting down and sewing this weekend. I didn't have a ton of time, but I did manage to make this:
It's a case for my cell phone so my purse won't kill it. I'm pretty happy with it other than the fact that I made it too big width wise. The tutorial I followed used an iPhone and I have an android so I attempted to make it bigger to accommodate my larger screen. The problem was it didn't really give good finished dimensions to work backwards from, so I googled how big an iPhone was and then guessed from there. It gets the job done, and that's all that really matters. Plus I love my turtle and hedge hog (left overs from the little apples charm pack).
I also made a napkin. Yes, you read that correctly. A napkin. They apparently take a lot longer and are a little more finicky than I thought so I got impatient and left the room. One person next Christmas will have a nice napkin though :)
This week I started a body boot camp class. It was obnoxious. I've been running 3 miles at an incline every day and have been incorporating some weight exercises after, as well as an ab routine. I thought I was doing pretty well and this class could help me overcome my plateau that I've hit. Well let me tell you, running 3 miles is apparently a cake walk compared to this. My instructor is the equivalent of a psychotic Jillian Michaels on steroids. I was dripping (ew) sweat within the first 5 minutes of class. I couldn't even believe it. At one point the entire class was bent over, panting, just watching the instructor do the move we were supposed to be mimicking I would be lying if I said I wasn't humored. It made me feel better that we were all in it together.
That was Tuesday. I have another class tonight. And I feel like I've been run over by a semi-truck. My abs, back, and shoulders are killing me. I am shaking in my boots for what is to come and praying that I don't look like a miserable idiot this evening. The good news is though, if the intensity keeps up I will probably end up crawling over this plateau on my hands and knees. Assuming I will be able to exercise this weekend. Here's to health!
