Edits have taken precedent over sewing this week.

Each Wednesday, I take stock of the projects I’m working on, and where my brain is at.

Edits have definitely taken precedent over sewing this week.

I’ve been working away on the first round of edits for book 2, while my technical editor has been editing book 1. And as happenstance would have it, I finished typing the edits for book 2, on the same day she sent me back the edits from book 1.

So the next step is to input my editor’s edits from book 1 – then print book 1 & 2 out and do another round of edits with a pen.

This actually bodes really well for my no-longer-really-an-Anna Dress & other summer wardrobe infusion projects.

Because spending my day sitting at my desk staring at my computer screen means that the last thing I want to do at the end of the day is sit at my desk staring at my sewing machine. But spending my day scribbling all over paper means that I’m more likely to want to sit down at my sewing machine in the evenings. Or to spend my whole day alternating between sewing & scribbling edits.

All that to say, my no-longer-really-an-Anna dress is not done, I still have the slit & the hem to go, and I will probably never be one of those bloggers who has a new finished project to show off every week.
