Sergers aside, I did get some sewing done. Tuesday was spent cutting. I like being able to grab a project and go. These are the fabrics that made it to the table this week.
Quilt pieces, I couldn't resist these fabrics and wanted to see how the squares would look. Such happy fun prints.
The coat lining was finally cut out and I'm gearing up for my first attempt at winter outwear.
Some lovely black and white wool mini check was cut into for a Quincy top. I am going to have a lot of style fun with this. Black collar, large black roll back cuffs and some pockets. I've cut this pattern just a bit longer than usual since I am viewing it more as a jacket than a top.
The retro looking alarm clocks will be made up in a comfy pocketed duster of sorts. I love these kinds of patterns actually. They are fun, comfortable and can be pretty versatile. The trim is a rich plummy brown silk matka.
Last up was a light cotton top from a Vogue pattern.
This is what I was serging when demons took over. Maybe they were angels, because this top is doing nothing for me. I thought the squared off V neck would be nice looking. It isn't.
In fact it's neither fish nor fowl and I disliked the scrub top look so much I have recut it into a sleeveless version of a well liked Simplicity pattern. Today's project to get done and set aside for warm weather wear.
There has been weaving going on too.
I'm into flag 8 of the prayer flag warp and progress has been fairly steady on the mixed wool warp. Half the bundles have been measured on. The idea of going right from swift to warping board worked out.
It's a little slow but still faster than making balls and then putting the warp on the board. I've enjoyed it too, as the yarns are so pretty. These need to be tied up into a bundle and a new one started with the rest of the yarns left.
Bulbs have been planted (finally!), rocks moved into place for a marker, some general outdoor clean up, a fun dinner out, some good time for play and reflection. A full week
indeed. And tonight, Patriots vs Broncos! ;)
Parting shot: Caught red pawed, hot footing it off after stealthily stealing Stella's ball!
