The thoughts of spring keep running through my head and yesterday was cold. But not as cold as other spots in Canada. I did get out a few times and the Spousal Unit showed me the growth on his rose bushes. We will be moving plants this weekend and putting in some bulbs.
I decided to work on the pink shirt. It is cut out and I got the saree onto the fronts, put on the crystals, and started hand sewing the back.
Once it is done, I will set the yokes aside and sew a very plain shirt to wear under the vest. Then I will go back and do the fancier one.
I am not sure how far I will get today as I am on call to move stuff in the basement if the electricians arrive. Move, put back, move, put back as the electricians have to finish up the storage room, a plug-in under the cupboard in the small hall area, and do the upgrades to the family room and downstairs kitchen.
Last fall when I was down to Ron Collin’s workshop in Langley, I chose to make a knit top and a pair of One Seam pants. I had Ron help me with the adjustments to the pattern and fitting. I hauled the top out a couple of evenings ago and will finish it (sleeve and bottom hems). I tried it on as I am close to my October weight. It is actually fitting a bit looser. What I did notice was the shoulder seams. They hang over onto my arm too far. I have to determine how much I need to alter this. Thanks to Lynda Maynard’s Perfect Fit class, I am becoming more critical of these things.
Next will be the pants and that is going to be interesting.
