WIP = Work in Progress
I really should find a better name for these mid-week posts, considering how often they get written on a non-Wednesday.
I got home from jury duty on Wednesday afternoon (did NOT get seated on the jury, thank goodness), had lunch, and tried to remember what it was I was supposed to be doing at that moment. OH RIGHT, I’m supposed to be writing a blog post. But I don’t have anything to show for the week! I’ve been working away, slowly, on my quilt blocks, but that blouse still isn’t finished. I’d better get moving!
So I got to work finishing this up:
You’ll recall this blouse was almost done, but needed to be taken in a bit. I brought the side seams in 2″ on each side, and shortened it 2″ in the front and 3″ at the back. I’m still undecided on whether I took it in enough, though. And it’s a little longer than I usually go with tops, but I like that it’s long enough to wear over leggings.
I think I’ll have to live with the blouse a while before I decide. One consideration is that I might want to wear a layer under it as fall moves into winter and it gets chilly here.
In the meantime, it’s very comfy to wear and the neckline isn’t too wide or too low, a perpetual problem for me. And I’m loving all the rich colors in this! I have the distinct impression my partner doesn’t like it–most of what I make is too colorful for him–but that’s okay, as it’s for ME. 🙂
Also, my 6-strip black and white units for the quilt are coming together. I’m fairly busy right now, but I’m trying to work on them a little every day.
I am loving them! So many cool fabrics in there . . . .
Still a bunch more to go. Then they’ll all need squaring up and cutting in half (podcasts definitely required for that step). I think I’ll starch them to add some stability to the triangles I wind up with.
Also up next is cutting out my Vogue 8954. Forest green mystery knit! Should be an interesting project and GREEN, too!
