It is crazy, poor old Easter Bunny is getting his things together and the morning dews are supposed to be here. Why on earth has someone forgotten to flick the autumn switch...
I shouldn't complain. I do enjoy summer and our house is temperature controlled.
I have spent the last week trying to squeeze in some sewing time amongst the hectic domestic schedule.. I am sure a lot of those people who sew and blog all the time, must have cleaners and nannies...
The flower girls have all had their fittings and now I can finish all 3 dresses. I just have to muster the energy and enthusiasm to go for it.
I continued with my bucket hat experimenting on Monday and I am about to draft off a different brim, I just want the brim to sit out a little more, more sun protection and less eye interference. The girls loved them, Miss4.5 already insisted on wearing it at Kinder today. I will try photographing them next chance I get..
Once my current (paying) task is done, I want to experiment with my gathering attachment on the overlocker and tweak it up so I can make a tiered skirt in one pass. If anyone has done it with success, I'd love to hear from you!!!!!!!!!
I am thinking it might be time for another Japanese Sewing Pattern Book....
This little shirt dress is gorgeous, I could just see it in linen with a nice print collar and placket, Have to keep the (to do pile) bigger than the stash itself.
Motivation, it is a strange thing, some days it only takes a simple thought, other days I might browse through stacks of magazines and clippings I have collected over the years..
I guess Inspiration cannot be made. It just has to come on its own.
