I'd like another long weekend, please.
Not much sewing happened here over the weekend I did get because DS#2 was making his Big Move into DS#1's bedroom and in order to ensure that DS#1's things didn't end up thrown into boxes willy-nilly, I had to participate and oversee. Even so, I have new dings in the two stairwells that will need to be filled and touched up. Sigh. And what is now DS#1's new room isn't completely finished, but it's close. I figure I have another 10 weeks to do that, so it wasn't urgent for the weekend. And, no, I won't have a second sewing room. First, I don't need it. But most importantly, I do want a place for DS#1 to return to when he can over the next few years. At some point, it will become an official guest room, but not until all parties are ready. ;-)
During football games yesterday, I did manage to finish the in-progress Hot Patterns Sunshine top I showed last week.
I made a flower to add to wear on it. Nothing fancy - just a bunch of circles from the print and some coordinating solids fused onto sturdy interfacing, cut with pinking shears, gathered and joined by hand, and then some crystals fused in the center. It's got a pin backing so I can remove it when laundering.
It shows up more in real life than in the photo, because the photo doesn't capture its 3D-ness.
I'm not sure what's up next on the sewing table. Maybe a new casual jacket for fall? I have a number of nice fabrics in the stash for just such a project. Maybe they've now aged long enough? We'll see. My sewing mojo is always fickle, plus this promises to be a busy work week.
A Close Call
