You Have Entered a 'No Sew Zone'

I wish I had lots of things to show you.....I wish I had anything to show you, but I don't.  It just isn't happenin' here.

I did manage to finish my corduroy skirt that I talked about in an earlier post.  I also managed to wear it twice before Spring arrived here in full force.  I am also almost done with S4182 that I am making in black/white seersucker.  I just have to do the buttonhole and sew the facings down.....but I'm not crazy about this long sleeve version as I was about the short sleeved one. I am apathetic about finishing it.

I think I am at a crossroads here with my sewing.  I have not been happy with the finished items, I have not been happy with my fabric choices (I live in a small is the choice) and I just don't seem to have the time lately to put into an item.  I see so many pretty things in the stores that I can have now and frankly, they fit better.

I  was thinking of making a dress for our anniversary dinner next month, but I saw a beautiful one in Belks that is going on sale this week for $43.00.  I like the fabric much better than any I have on hand or have seen online.  And it would only take a minute to pop over there and try it on.

I am in a slump. Or have lost my 'mojo' if I ever did have it.  Sewing at this moment just doesn't excite me.  Maybe it's 'spring fever'. Who knows?

Oysters Rockefeller

I've been very lack showing off The Husband's culinary skills of late, so I thought I would tempt you with the yummy Oysters Rockefeller he made for us last night.

He also made some lovely mussels in broth....but my picture just didn't do it justice (I am still getting use to my new camera phone).  We are having the remaining dozen oysters a la' natural tonight along with a beautiful piece of redfish wrapped in rice paper and sauteed.
