No, I haven't been posting in a while -- stuff got in the way and writing, photographing, and posting was too much. But now things have settled some
Above is a photo of my sewing table this morning. It's a mix of the end of last year's stuff and the beginning of this year's. A skirt waiting to be hemmed, another one waiting to be sewn up. Although I have a closet full of skirts I need/want more. Some of my old ones are looking worn out and I gained a little weight last year (middle age stuff, ya' know) - so some skirts just don't fit anymore. Half a dozen skirts are lined up with the fabric and patterns ready! The Colette Sewing Handbook was a Christmas present -- a nicely written book for my modest sewing library! There's also the Colette sewing pattern for the Jasmine top in my letter stand in the back. The Beatles t-shirt thrown over the back of my chair is waiting to be made into a tote bag - that'll happen next time I put black thread on the serger. And the doll's (Gene's) dress form sitting there wearing a crinoline?! That just ended up there somehow.
I'm ready for some sewing - but first things first - oil the sewing machine!
