A few evenings ago I climbed back into the bodice and stood very still while JJ carefully pinned me in (note to self, a centre back closure on a block is just daft). About ten minutes later he ever so patiently ‘let me out’ and the block has been lying in a scruffy wee pile since. It does have a few new pins in it. Just a few, rather under confidently placed.
I wanted to get into it to have a better look at SBA volumes but it all felt too hard for some reason so I wimped out. I’m being terribly lazy now and waiting for my dress form to arrive before getting on with it.
I have been sewing though but for the kids and other folk. Nothing for me, which is a little annoying and mostly rather boring fare I’m afraid. Still, it is better than nothing I think:
Output included three skivvies and two fleece hats for my girls, two tops for my friend’s birthday, another jumper for Dad (this time round necked), a snuggly nightshirt for my wee nephew and three baby blankies and scarves. All knits, mostly merino and cotton and all serged and coverstitched. Not all pictured as the girls are wearing the skivvies and hats today (brrrrrrrr), the Dad jumper is en-route and the blankies and scarves have been delivered to their new owners.
Mutter mutter mutter. Soon will sew for self. Soon will sew for self. And tidy the sewing room … Yes. And that.
