Skirting The Issue
Could this blog post win the award for most random ramblings, only vaguely connected by a fragile spiderweb of Sewist moments? Bear with me.
I went into the office today wearing my new Simplicity 2512 with my summer make of the Betty Minisweater. This cardie hasn’t seen quite as much hot weather wear as I would have liked, so I’m glad to have an outfit that it suits. I’m still a bit sad about the scorched wool on the back of this skirt. It’s not completely disguised. Probably no one would know or notice other than me, but I know and I notice. Such is the way of a Sewist.
After work, I went back to Drink, Shop & Do for a spot of writing with three author friends. We settled down with our laptops and enjoyed the charming waitresses bringing us cups of hot chocolate:
Ooh, I like her dress, don’t you?
I crept away from my Work In Progress at one point to take another look around the shop, spotting delights such as these:
Then I came home and admired the new fabric, just delivered by Rainbow Fabrics on Etsy:
I have big plans for this!
A friend of mine has been working hard on a vampire-themed series of books. She’s leaving work soon for a new job. I bet she’d really like a vampire-themed pen roll, wouldn’t she? Wouldn’t she…?!
Finally, I read a lovely comment on my last blog post suggesting Ponte di Roma fabric for my next make, the Vogue V1183. I had no idea what this fabric was, so had to look it up on the Internet. Which means I learned something today, too!
I leave you with a link to a photo I took recently that has made a lot of people laugh. Be warned, it contains a swear word so if you’re of a nervous disposition, don’t click the link. But I know you Sewists. Nervous dispositions, my behind. Anyone who’s tackled an invisible zip must have nerves of steel and will definitely be familiar with swear words…
And that was a day in my Sewist life!
