Life got in the way but I’m determined not to disappear again. I missed you too much. I missed reading and writing blogs. I missed sewing.
As you can see I have done a little bit of stitchery since last October, which I’ll post about in the next little while. Most has been in the last month or so and my happiest accomplishment is the little piles laid out on my sewing room floor of traced and cut out patterns ready for construction. They are, cumulatively, my stitchery To Do’s and I’m adding to them almost faster than I can sew them up.
Like this top – the fabric, an acrylic with plenty of lyrca, has a most wonderfully heavy drape and I couldn’t walk past its sparkling brassy-goldeness in the shop. There’s a hint of the 70s about it don’t you think? Perfect for spring.
Purple – another acrylic this time with no lycra so it loosens around the waist, wrists and neckline during the day. I don’t mind the slouchiness of it, as the long long sleeves and shoulder drop seem to work with the changing fit.
Next? Can’t remember. You’ll have to wait and see!
