It's been a great weekend here in my house! Well, mostly for me as poor darling Husbie had to work on his photographs and then go to work, and my sore back got heaps better thanks to a barley/lavender warm up pillow! They're really good!
Thanks for your lovely words for my sore back, I bet they helped too! After the funnest Grand Final Day ever (LOLZ) I hung out a bit in the sewing room
And the sun shone and all was well! I'm working on some of my giveaway items, and planning a BABY QUILT. I have never made a quilt before, but have heaps of cotton scraps, that I thought would be great for my babies (well, friends' babies)... I'll just have to figure out how to make them! This one on Mary Quilts's site looks kinda simple. Right? I have no idea how to stitch it together, or to do the loopy stitching on top... and do you actually need quilting stuff, or can I use old tshirts or thick fabrics (love recycling!)?
Anyways, I finished this for my friend:
Made the neckline a little scoopier, because it was a high neck tshirt... but the fabric was really soft and stretchy, so I tried to reinforce it with another collar, but didn't have any ribbed material so it's kinda floppy now. It's for a sports match, so I bet floppy and light is better anyways!
And here's my Self Stitched September outfit for today:
A dress I made last year for my friend's wedding and a new (old) headscarf from my fave vintage furniture shop in Yarraville. It's a Pincurl Sunday today. It was such lovely weather today, and officially the first day for me not wearing tights. WOW.
Hope you've had a nice weekend darling! xoxo
