The temperature has dropped a little and there’s just the hint of a breeze, which makes my sewing room hot but just about habitable, at least early this morning.
I have a stack of WIP boxes full of things that I should be getting on with, but feeling rash I decided to make a start on some quick projects that I’ve wanted to get started for ages.
First up was a rag rug….I got the frame strung, hauled some suitable scraps from the scrap basket, cut some 2″ strips with my lovely new zigzag rotary cutter blade (thanks to the lovely Di, who sent it last time I was making a rug) and got myself started.
Then I cut out the main pieces for a toweling bathrobe using two old and unusably ginormous bath towels that had been sitting on the sewing room floor (in the way) since forever. I’m planning on trimming and interfacing this with Liberty odds and ends…I’m a woman with a plan!
Finally I cut out the pieces for a new dress… Peony by Colette patterns. I know the fabric is by a well-known designer, but can’t for the life of me remember who! Maybe one of you can help!
Things are moving round here and there’s a huge mess in the sewing room, but it’s great to be back doing things again!
I’ll keep you posted with how I get on!
