So slack…

I’m so sorry! I haven’t had any photos so I haven’t done any posts… 😦

I believe I am now three (maybe four?) articles behind in my posting. I really need a tripod so I can take my own piccies instead of having to harrass the hubby. πŸ˜‰ I’ve been happily wearing my beauties and have had lots of nice comments on them. People know that I’m sewing now and are beginning to ask if I’ve made my clothes when they see me in something new. πŸ™‚

I’ve recently finished a Tilly and the ButtonsΒ Miette wrap skirt. I made it with some customisation that I saw Lauren from Guthrie & GhaniΒ do on her Miette skirt. When I finally post about the skirt I’ll link through to the tutorial on her website. πŸ™‚

At the moment the garment making is on hold. Partly because I’m making mother’s day pressies for three mums and also because I made the (maybe foolish?) decision to teach myself how to knit last weekend. I think I need to re-write my subtitle on the blog. πŸ˜‰

I’m looking into getting a second-hand overlocker so I can give that a crack. I’m not overly happy with my inside finishing and I think that may help. As well as being good for sewing knits which I really want to get into. I want to sew myself a Vogue V1179Β (Donna Karan, if you don’t mind!)Β for layering in winter. I have some lovely combed cotton jersey in a bright red already destined for this pattern. πŸ™‚

So goals for the upcoming week:

  1. Finish the mother’s day presents.
  2. Keep an eye on my overlocker auction.

Wish me luck! πŸ˜‰
