Things are just strange at the mo, I don't seem to have enough time or energy for anything really.
I did manage, just by the skin of my teeth to get my skirt made;
I'm quite pleased with my effort, it looks rather good even though it's a little roomy, even after tweeks. I had the problem that the widest part of my hip is the same measurement as my waist. I am keeping myself comforted with the thought that I have a majorly skinny ass and not that I have a big wobbly mummy tummy. So drawing the pattern block was a little odd, it looks fab on though and I'll be making more just as soon as the weather brightens a bit and allows one to wear legs again.
So what have I been up to, apart from making a skirt? Not alot really, my poor sewing machine is struggling and I spent two days trying to find the best place to get it looked at and mended and inbetween time swearing at it while I tried to complete projects. I had a birthday and got some lovely presents and just to make my day my lovely hubby bought home a beautiful NEW sewing machine from work. I knew there was a reason I'd married him! And in celebration I knocked out a couple of bags;
And that's all for now folks, chicken to roast and babies to get ready for bed and a sofa to sit upon. Hopefully I'll be back sooner rather than later.
