When I went shopping for fabric I forgot my list of measurements needed in the trunk of the car. So I guessed knowing the skirt took a lot, but I forgot it was wide fabric and I now have enough to make a straight skirt as well!
This is the blouse pattern I am making. The pattern was given to me by a friend who was cleaning out her sewing space. At the time I didn't know she was dieing of cancer. She has been gone at least two years now. She always had her clothes sewn for her and was elegant in style. This is a wrap blouse. I cut out black fabric also given to me by another source, and overcast it and did the tailor tacks last night. I need black interfacing ( from mom) before I can go on.
I picked up some pink floral plates on the weekend.
I also bought these handles for the sewing desk on Sunday. I like them, mostly because of the roses, but they were not cheap. I need six more to match on my antique dresser! There are handles on the dresser now, so all shall have to wait.
I pulled four zucchini out the garden this morning and sheaded it for winter baking. I need to get the beans out today, but the mosquitoes are bad down there this morning. We must be getting some rain tonight. I shall not complain over that.
Seems I have a chest infection, hence my moods these last few days. Dearest said it is stress, and I need to take it easy. Just but my in a paper box and ship me to a destination!
