Sewing

I finished the new camica last night to wear at coronation this weekend. When I received my Laurel 2 years ago my friend presented me with embroidered bands that I could use to decorate the cuffs and collar of a shirt/ shift/ camica and I finally got around to using them. I'm fairly pleased with how it turned out. I finished the hand sewing last night and tried it on this morning. It's a bit snug in the underarms, but not horrible. If I need to I can always add gussets.

Saturday I FINALLY dug out a project that I have been delaying for 4 years. I was given some silk knit fabric to make some fitted shirts for my sisters friend. I normally do not work with knit. My sewing machine does not really know what to do with it. Since I was going to see the person on Sunday I thought I should give it a try, so I made a pattern and cut out 2 and sewed them up on Saturday. I am not happy with them, but they are out of my house, which is a good thing.

I started the fabulous purple socks on Sunday night and I'm still a few inches away from turning the heel. I would really like to have them done for Saturday, but I don't know if that is possible. I still have to block Icarus and it is not looking like that will happen this week, too much other stuff taking priority.

Love the pic of the 'GrillMaster'

Yeah we convinced her to come but would agree that a less court filled event would be better, her biggest problem was she really couldnt hear.

You did speak well, I could actually hear you over jabberjaws baby.

See you Thursday
