I finished one more UFO. I am not in love with it. It was a peasant blouse I had been putting off for quite some time. I am glad its done, and I will wear it, but I will think about whether to adjust the pattern more for my liking. The instructions were not really the best.
I have made garments since the 70s, but not too many lately. This was from a book called Weekend Sewing by Heather Ross. It had no instructions for laying it out and I found it was nearly impossible on the piece of fabric I bought for it. That being said, it was an easy pattern. A few adjustments and I might love it as an option.
My digressions are around a part-time job that I have added to my plate. It has taken me a bit away from my sewing and concentrating on my blog, but I hope to return to a more structured way of living soon, so that I get time for everything – new endeavor, part-time work at the quilt store, time in Maine and time with my loved ones.
Next up is a little quilt, although not quite done, it is a 12″ block for our guild show in October. The spring fling weekend added to my work in two ways: a huge bag of strings to turn into a few benefit quilts and this mini block. I couldn’t abandon this fabric panel so it became a little quilt. I’ll quilt next week, and bind (or refresh a skill)
Last, but not least, John graduates in 18 days from Johns Hopkins! I can hardly believe it – my baby is growing up. I am so proud of him.
