Today is a stay at home day for me. Yesterday a friend and I took our horses out for a very chilly and muddy trail ride. All four of us had a wonderful time and I am now enjoying being indoors while warm, cozy and clean.
This picture is NOT from yesterday. Woody and I stayed out of creeks and did not fall into bogs, as seen in this sad photo. It was an uneventful ride with no deer, no spooks, no dogs and no accidents. Amazing for where and how I usually ride.
Today I thought I'd give you a peek at what I'm sewing and what I'm wearing.
I have 2 projects which I am working on. First is the Minoru Jacket by Sewaholic Patterns. I am going to make this up in a rust colored corduroy and line it with an animal print. I will leave the hood off, as I don't live in a rainy area. Tasia is doing a sewalong for this pattern and I hope to participate for as long as I can, given that I may be traveling. I'll post more later on.
Here is today's project:
I really need tops to go with jeans and skinny pants. I picked up a number of blousey tunic patterns and starting on B5527 today. It should be a quick sew, except for the continuous lap. We'll see.
Here is a closeup of the pattern and fabric:
The fabric is a stretch knit with a slight flocking on the leaves. It is so pretty and one of those fabrics that I wish I had more of.
sewing and craft supplies. When I started thinking about it, I really was only concerned with my little space. But I know many of you do not have a designated space to sew or create. I'd like to share some of the ways I organize in a very small space. Here is a preview-the photos above show our second bedroom which I have converted into a sewing space. It is small, usually tidy, and everything I need is here. It also acts as my room in which I store ALL of my clothes, accessories, jewelry, craft/sewing books. I'll show how I do this and discuss some of the tradeoffs and adjustments I have made.
I hope you are having a good Sunday. I'm going back upstairs to do some sewing and will enjoy hearing what you are doing today.
