We are finally getting some really good rain here in California. This storm is supposed to go on through Monday, so, since we must stay indoors, there is lots of sewing going on. This week I worked on the gray shirt for A and finally finished it this morning.
The collar and cuffs are lined with a deep raspberry red. It was difficult finding buttons the right color of gray, so these buttons, having languished in the button bin for decades, finally got used. They are a sort of gray/dark raspberry mix that reminds me of old linoleum. I sewed them on with dark raspberry thread.
Next up in line is some lingerie for one of the daughters and more shirts for me.
