Well I must say that time has escaped me over the last few days and it seems that the whole month of June is going to be very busy for me. So I thought I had better catch up. On day 2 of MMJ'11 I forgot to do the photo shoot. Home from work to cook and eat dinner then out to my craft group held twice monthly. I had to go to the archives to dig up this one. I wore my tunic dress made from Butterick 5427.
Oops...... no photo for day 3.
Day 4 - was my sewing guild monthly get together. We have a fun day sewing, helping and learning from each other but I think much more gossiping gets done than any amount of sewing.
These ladies were actually sewing at the time I took this photo. I did manage to get 1 knit top and 1 shirt cut out and also finish a dress. I would have been more productive at home but still it's fun chatting with others who share an interest/hobby with you. You learn so much!
What I wore. A top made from Simplicity 4076. The is a TNT pattern to which I have made sleeve alterations. I have a strange look on my face in this photo. The sun was so bright my eyes were watering and I couldn't keep them open. Usually I never walk outside without my sunnies.
Day 5 - Much better photo - wearing my sunnies; I can actually see today. This is a scarf I made, copied from one I bought last Christmas while on holiday. It's such a busy time of year I had forgotten to pack one and I absolutely love the one I bought.
Today, Day 6 is much colder than the last couple of days. We still have sunshine but it's very 'fresh'. The air has a real bite to it so I rugged up in my knitted scarf. I love the colour of this scarf but I must say that it's very heavy and felt like it was choking me. Note to self - undo and re-knit with less stitches to make it thinner and lighter.
Oh no...! I have discovered a gap in my wardrobe. I am lacking in casual/weekend garments suitable for the winter season. I'm not sure how I will go tomorrow as it's going to be very cold here and getting colder through the week and I'm certainly in need of winter clothing. I better get on with the sewing.
I have enjoyed reading all the posts and seeing what everyone is wearing. I hope I can keep up.
