Just to keep this blog in the cybersphere I'll add a short update. This blog started out as a way for me to document what I'd been sewing...not much this month. We had a great family memorial for my dad this past weekend in CA and followed up with a long lunch at the Cannery Restaurant in Newport Beach. Lots of laughter and stories...some sad, mostly fun memories of my dad's long life. I was surprised at how exhausted that left me. But, we came home this morning and after the laundry and our daily walk, I hope to get a few projects off of the sewing table.
I'm doing some embroidery designs on t shirts for my DDIL. She is running a relay marathon and I'm doing some silly designs on shirts for her team.
I want to finish the third pair of Bilbao pants that I almost finished at the Loes Hinse seminar. I did finish my Mallorca jacket and will post photos of that soon. I made 3 t shirts, and only one remains. Totally user error. I did not pretreat fabrics or even test a sample swatch of fabric. I am WAY too old for crop tops/belly shirts. So, although I cut all three from the same pattern, only one is really fully wearable. One is OK under a jacket after I let out the hem, and one went in the trash.
Tonight DH and DS are going to the UNLV basketball game and I'm watching the 3 kidlets. Then, back to work in the morning. I am subbing again--at a delightful elementary school. Being an assistant principal is so much more enjoyable than being the principal! This job is done before the winter break and then I'm taking a long break :>)
Hope to share some sewing and/or photos soon!
