Perfect Sewing Weather

Today it's been raining quite heavily - even the front verandah is wet where the rain has blown in ... perfect sewing weather.

Decisions, decisions, what to sew? I could start planning the cruise wardrobe (though I would like to drop a few kilos first), or I could continue with the charity quilts (that means crawling around on the floor pinning - don't think my knees will hold up to that today), or I could just start my winter sewing (I'll still need warm clothing as we'll be back from hols when the r-e-a-l cold weather hits).


Actually, I must pack my bag for the draping workshop this Saturday.

Sunny Days

Just 10 weeks to go and we sail away for 1 whole month, woo! hoo!

Now, looking like a deep fried lobster is not a good look, so apart from tne obligatory litre of 30+ sunscreen, the next essential destined for the bag is a wide brimmed sunhat or two. My first attempt is a reversable hat with a plain cream+floral furnishing fabrics. Quite succesful, don't you think?

another week just flashed by!!

How fast is this year going???

It didn't seem like I got much done in the way of sewing this week, but when I did the tallies I surprised myself ... finished another 2 blouses.

The next thing is to get a couple more lap quilts done, then I can get in and tidy my unruly sewing area (and to think I used to pester my kids at the mess they made.)
