We haven’t been home much in the last few weeks and I’m bursting with creativity. But....back on the road again tomorrow. 🚐 The only thing I’ve made in the last few weeks is this tiny stone copper ring. I like the simplicity of it and will likely do more! 💎💙💍
Long day, got a lot done. This is how I finished, back to the oak soul bowls. This is probably the biggest, heaviest wood I’ve turned so far — green (fresh) oak, 10” by 6” diameter. I got two rough bowls out of it, and I’ll work on drying them in the microwave tonight so I can finish them maybe tomorrow.
Giving my best “Blue Steel” impression in my latest creation from @simplicity_creative_group , #s8733. Such a fabulous fabric (bronze feathers!!!!) rescued from the clearance section of @misanretail last summer. Wish I had a few yards more! . . My version of #s8733 View B was an epic battle of adjustments in which fixing the armscye nearly broke me. ( I couldn’t raise my arms without exposing my nether bits *argh*.) That’s in addition to drafting a new neckline that wouldn’t lie flat, de-poofing the sleeves, narrowing the shoulders, sculpting an HH-level FBA and removing the zipper. *phew* . . And yet, while the dress is super comfy and fun to wear (LOVE the sleeves!!!), I’m not so sure about the silhouette. I’m learning that I prefer outfits with a defined waist and I could comfortably tuck a basketball under my boobs with room to spare. *doh* Adding a belt helps (swipe), but belts are the worst when sitting down. . . I wish I could’ve loved this one more. Perhaps I’ll salvage the fabric one day and turn it into a top of some sort. In the interim, I don’t think I’ll be making this dress (or ones like it) again anytime soon. . . What sorts of styles have you guys given up on? . . . . #imadethis#handmadewardrobe#imakemyownclothes#sewingbloggers#sewersofinstagram#psblogger#sewingdetails#lovetosew#handmadestyle#cscmakes#sewists#memade#sewyourown#memadeeveryday#sewing#sewingproject#sewbusy #sewcialists #sewistsofinstagram #sewfreshsewclean13
Because ‘old favourites’ are old favourites for a reason. . . Spinach, mushroom, ricotta and squash lasagne. Spiked with paprika, nutmeg and garlic and dotted with leftover white sauce from the girls’ tea yesterday. As ever, I, of course, had seconds. . I’m on my own guys, so I stepped up and did what had to be done 😉👌🏼
Another knit that will be a wardrobe staple this fall - my #nofrillssweater. This sweater is probably the most luxurious piece of clothing I own. I knit it with @_hellostella_ Basic Stella in Peaberry and @shibuiknits Silk Cloud in Brick. Absolutely in love. Just look at the colour
DAY TWENTY THREE 23/100 of #the100dayproject magic happens when the baby sleeps in till 8 am. Top is finished (& fits! 👌🏼) bottoms need elastic in waistband and in leg holes and then it’s ready for the pool. #vernazzatwopiece
