My sewing machine and I have both had a good work out and I've been drinking a lot of water to get me through the day....I bought two of these new drink bottles so I don't knock them over in my sewing room and I keep the one filled in the fridge ready.
I have a big floor fan running while I'm working in the heat and if you look at my rail you will see just how much I did on Monday...
- shortened 3 dresses
- took in 2 dresses
- tapered the legs on 4 pair of trousers
- shortened 5 pair of trousers and
- took in another pair of trousers on the waist
I shortened a black lacy evening dress at the end of my day on Friday and I think this pic says it all!!
Can you tell just how tired I was?
Can you see the deliberate mistake?
Yes, I had changed the top thread but failed to change the bobbin and didn't notice my mistake until I had very nearly gone all round the hem!!
Just as well I love unpicking and of course it wasn't hard to see the thread needing undoing!!
These were the two more bears I made last week.....yes that meant I had 7 bears to make last week!
The one on the left is for a teacher's leaving gift cos the little country school is closing and the one on the right was to remember a young man that decided to end his own life far too soon.
I have many school bears ordered for when the term finishes and at least 3 more to arrive this week.
I'm so thrilled that they are proving to be very popular....I really love making each one cos they are all so different.
That's all from me for today. If you leave me a little message I will do my best to pop over to catch up with you later. Hope you all have a great week.
