Here’s a preview of Burda 6909…it’s almost done! Tomorrow I’ll hem it and put the buttons on it. I’ll try to do a full review of it tomorrow.
Today was a busy day! I got up early to make…
Went shopping and bought…
Between all the sewing and baking, I watched the progress of these
There’s tomatoes, petunias, a couple varieties of basil ( I LOVE basil) and a few other things there. There were sprouts popping out all over today! Growing stuff helps me get through the winter. Speaking of winter, I am soooo ready for spring to get here…we’re having a mess of sleet today. I can hear it hitting the window now! I really hope this is winter’s last gasp!
And I just got this in the ovenlit oven (no additional heat):
Tomorrow morning when we wake up, it will be yogurt! I’ll strain it for an hr or so and then my husband and I will eat it throughout the week. It’s far superior to any yogurt I’ve ever had from the store.
The fabric above is peachskin made from 100% rayon….it’s GORGEOUS and sooo soft! I stopped in at a local fabric/machine/notions store in town here today because they have the best selection of buttons in Wichita and I spotted the navy. I asked if they had any in other colors and so we went looking around the store and found the pale blue. I may attempt dyeing that one a bit darker. I’m not sure what pattern to use. I view this sort of fabric for spring/summer type tops (but preferably not sleeveless) and relatively simple in design (no sleeve plackets or collars with a stand!). Does anyone have any suggestions??
