Currently Little Sister and her husband are driving a Dodge along Route 66 and we get nightly updates of photos on Facebook. Thank you Little Sister (if you are reading this). But today I went out for a late lunch with a friend and as it is a beautiful sunny day I walked there and back. Past the flowers
I have two finishes to show
Ring O Roses is now waiting for me to choose the lining fabric - currently I am trying to decide between a red silky fabric to match the floss or a plain linen the same as the foundation fabric. No decision yet so construction will have to wait.
Today I have been sewing so once dinner is finished, I will hem up the two pairs of trousers and sew the bias binding on my new silk nightdress. I unpicked a Ready To Wear pair of trousers to trace off a pattern and then sewed them up again. A long winded process to hopefully ensure I can replicate the fit of trousers that I love.
So far so good on The List. Tomorrow is some baking, some more sewing and then I will need to run the vacuum cleaner over the carpet - sewing does tend to leave lots of threads lying about.
