I didn’t sew at all this week, which is unusual for me. I discovered Picasa Web Albums and the wonderful magazines people have posted there and spent a lot of the week going through sewing and needlework magazines. For a break towards the end of the week, I went up to the next county to visit the craft thrift store and came home with a nice haul of fabric, mostly lovely linens and printed knits. I am amassing quite a large mountain of fabric in the guest room so better get busy and sew a lot of it up before it falls on someone.
My daughter, A, picked up the gray shirt and tried it on. It fit very well, so I have been mentally designing different variations of it to keep the sewing interesting while I crank out multiple versions for her to wear to work. I pulled out several patterns with different kinds of collars and cuff variations so will be trying these out. My fabric from the craft thrift store includes over 8 yards of a most beautiful teal linen, which is calling out to be cut and sewn. However, I have a red shirt for me all ready to go, I just need to get off the computer and over to the sewing machine.
