The little bouquet is from my garden, a left over from my Dad's visit.
My pattern stash is growing, what was only two drawers full is quickly becoming three. ClubBMV is working well for me. I've more than recoup the $15 membership in savings, and for the umpteenth time JoAnns didn't have any of the patterns that interested me in the drawer. Pay no attention to the fabric, they came out of the dryer and just need to be folded.
Started a new project, a lil premature maybe- I started it before finishing the last one, but I am anxious. I cut out a jacket pattern that the envelope said would be done in thirty minutes, over an hour later....... After hand basting the panels together to see the fit, happy with that, the lapel/collar/back facing area is giving me a run for my money. It’s something I don’t think I’ve ever done before.
Ok, partly hand based (or is it basted) and partly pinned.
A thing of beauty, if I say so myself. I used to stay away from patterns like this when I was younger, and only sewed tops with a center back seam or darts. But putting these pieces to together is not as hard as I thought it would be, and it does make for a better fit.
I figured I’d give it a rest for tonight and pick it up again tomorrow. DH made me a mango, pineapple, strawberry daiquiri and that’s more appealing than figuring out this collar right now, it be calling me man.…lol.
Thanks for tuning in, come again
