My sewing room is dusty. I look in through the door from time to time as I walk past. You see, the kids have been sick. Twice. Each. Hubby has been sick on and off for over a month and now its my turn. Oh and it is school holidays.
This is the worst winter E-V-E-R.
Consequently there has been no sewing action of any kind for an age. I have however just started to pull apart an old Ann Demeulemeester skirt which is going to be very interesting indeed. I bought it well over ten years ago have worn it loads and if the gorgeous wool fabric wasn’t shiny from wear and dry cleaning it would still look great – very classic long with fly front and pockets front and back. I’m looking forward most to seeing how it is constructed around the waist and fly / pockets area … what sort of interfacing has been used and all that guff.
It is black as black though so not something I have the energy to do at night – impossible to see – so to keep my creative self self awake I have picked up the knitting needles. A hat for the kids is done and I’m onto a tunic thingy for me. I haven’t the energy to do much more than sit on the couch and click needles together in the evening.
Anyway all will be back to normal soon I hope and, per my last post, my next sewing project will have to be something that is not knit fabric or I will have to put myself into time out.
