More Stitching, Less Bi#$hing. My mantra for the week. I would have loved to head out on a nice neighborhood walk to participate with a lovely, picturesque view as your ‘Tour Guide” in the Weekly Photo Challenge, but the weather didn’t cooperate all weekend. We ended up with this view out my back door.
So you’re going to get a tour through a quiet weekend at home alongside my sewing machine. Hopefully it’s not too boring for you.
Choosing the pattern first, I thought this one would be user friendly for my out-of-practice dressmaking skills. I can’t even remember the last time I made a garment — out of fabric that is. There have been plenty of hats, shawls and the like via crochet just to clarify.
I like the new look of the flared sleeves. But for myself, they are not practical. I’m the roll-up-your-sleeves kind of gal during the week. I have to wash hands, dishes, toys and wipe too many noses during the day in my line of work to bother with that style. So I decided on View D.
Thanks for dropping in on this cold, Missouri Sunday Sampler!
