(WIP = Work in Progress)
Making lots of progress here! Which is kind of amazing, considering how lousy I’ve been feeling, but I’ll take it.
Let’s go through the list of what I wanted to get done before our vacation:
- Baby quilt for my niece.
All appliqué pieces are cut and fused on!
There might have been a little bit of grumbling and swearing as I made my way along the Steam-A-Seam learning curve, but I got there in the end, and I really love how this looks so far (much better than I was able to capture in my picture).
- Another version of S1199, short-sleeved this time.
Just need to sew side seams and hem.
- Black hoodie.
Last time I went to London, I bought a black hoodie to bring with me, and it turned out to be a very useful light layer. Now that hoodie is a little scruffy and is being used for exercising, so I thought it was time to make a new one. My first idea was to use this Greenstyle pattern that I won, but I decided I wanted a hoodie that didn’t look like workout wear, and found this one:
I’ve got some black ponte for this, and assembled the rest of the supplies yesterday, so it is ready to start.
- B5456 dress for the Facebook sew-along–muslin of the bodice is done, sew-along posts and schedule are mapped out, and preliminary posts are up.
- Navy blouse (McCall’s 7571)–still cut out and patiently waiting for me to get to it.
Have a great Thursday and I hope you’re working on something that makes you smile.
