My nephew is excited for Monday! What about you?
I had such a great weekend. Spent time with friends (over meals so that is the best, am I right?), spent time with family including the sweetie above, and did some sewing. The weather was exceptional and I was outside a bit. No pneumonia!?! What else could I ask for?
I visited Fabricland after being out of the sewing-thing for 3 months due to illness. I am taking part in Pretty Grievances’ Jungle Swap. She is determined to keep animal print alive! So while I wait for my package and I shopped for my swap partner, I saw this fabric on sale at Fabricland. You know how I love a geometric print. And when you combine neutrals like black, tan, and grey, you get me everytime. It is a stretchy knit so I am going to try it with the Colette Myrtle pattern. It might move up on the sewing junket because I can already see it becoming a staple. Dress, check; knit, check; print, check; neutral colours, check. It just ticks all the boxes!
Meanwhile I continue to work on my Vietnamese silk dress. The bodice is together and lined but I am not sharing any more photos because I think it’s going to be a stunner. It will need its moment in the spotlight. That should be early February. Someone invite me out for dinner! This dress will need to get out!
Here is a shot of my sewing space. My Cath Kidston chair pincushion fits right on my sewing machine bed. I realized how cute it looked this weekend; just sitting there, waiting for pins. Also, I lost the 2nd page of my instructions for New Look 6910 (which is the Vietnamese Dress pattern). Can anyone help by taking a couple of photos? I can likely finish without them but I like my instructions to confirm that I am doing the right thing.
Hope your weekend was good and your Monday brings a wonderful week!
