The zinnias are finally blooming. I have finished the plums and am getting ready to make the pesto for next year. Instead of getting down to work, though, I decided to make a flying visit to the local IKEA. I was sad to see two things: there is no more lingonberry soda in the cafeteria, and the price has doubled for the Knoppa sheets. Bummer.
The next project is in the works, a tan denim skirt for A. I’m also still experimenting with her shirt pattern and may make another version using a pretty dark red sheet that was on sale at KMart. This is all part of my interest in alternative sources for fabric to lower the cost of clothing. It will be interesting to see how the garments wear and if they have a good comfort level. There is also a summer dress for me in the works.
