Maybe I’m early this week, but it’s already Sunday in at least half the world. 😉
If you’d like to participate in Sunday Sevens, no matter when your Sunday arrives, check out Nat’s post.
We pretty much make up our own rules, but her guidelines are over here.
Looking at these calendar illustrations reminded me of this week’s Photo Challenge, so they’re hereby submitted.
Below are 2 more opposites: My Shweshwe South African fabric (gifted by the lovely Anne over at The Compulsive Seamstress) coupled with a linen/cotton fabric called Papaya Passion, from Fabworks Online, in Dewsbury, U.K.
If you email them a message it might get answered by George, who was tremendous, answering all my questions about this fabric. Not to mention a couple other things.
I’ve been considering some options for pieces to include in an ensemble, in honor of the Shweshwe. Anne brought it up to the U.K. after her vacation, then sent it on to me in the U.S. This piece is better traveled than I am.
So far I’m thinking a very loose kimono-sleeved unlined almost duster & contrasting dress to wear together. So I’m planning a few of those in other fabrics, just to get in the mood.
What do you think about the combination? Too much, or not enough?? I’m hoping they’ll be in harmony with each other, and entering them in Ailsa’s travel challenge, too.
Also spent 2 lovely hours watching the last two episodes of Great British Sewing Bee. Only one more for this year . . . makes me sad.
Took not nearly as long as anticipated getting my old serger/overlocker (same thing, different names) re-threaded Yes. The dreaded re-threading.
You can see from the booklet how detailed the innards are.
I was almost finished overlocking every piece in that black kimono-sleeve jacket when it happened. A thread snapped. At that point all I could do was Step Away From The Machine.
On another day the crisis got resolved,the last piece overlocked, but it started wonking out. This time I caught it real quick, discovered a notch that had come un-threaded, tweaked it back into place, and all was fine. Phew!
Now it’s on to the next crisis: having had to piece the 2 front sections, I get to piece them together, making them look like deliberate design “details.” Thank goodness this is a three-day weekend
Hope you’re enjoying yours!
