Me Made Monday #2

So yesterday I woke up with serious chest congestion and a sore throat.  NO!!!!!!!!!! I didn't even want to contemplate another 2 months of bronchitis, so with the aid of Nyquil, I slept most of the day and am feeling much better today.  I almost used one of my pajama days, but I was cold so instead
I opted for this fleece shirt and pant set I made a few years ago.  I have no idea what one would really call this--dressy sweats?--but they're really warm.  The pants have an inexplicable flair to the hem, so they're really as close to bell-bottom sweats as one can ever [hopefully] get, and I'm always just a tad self-conscious wearing them out in public, but they were great for napping. 

I had some crafting time on Sunday, and there was a brief period when I actually thought the purple jacket might be finished for Monday,
but if I had any true sense of how long things take, my sewing room would NOT look like a craft store threw up, so I didn't make it.  It is getting closer though. 

I also got the new runner stitched together and pinned for quilting,
 as well as the earlier one,
so I had a good day.  I still really, really, really want to start a new quilt, but I am making myself finish a few more things before getting to do that--if nothing else, to clear off enough space to start ANYTHING new.

Yesterday I didn't do much of anything except sleep, but I did get the second sleeve cast on and even some decent progress:
I need 20 of the Me Made Mondays to be new or unworn items, and new would be wonderful and free up some space in the sewing room.  In January, anything is possible, right?
