LifestyleAs the weather was nice, we headed out to the library yesterday morning. The Spousal Unit wanted to know the name of a plant by the front door. We have never seen it before and it is bright yellow and green.
SewingThe adult bibs (unselfish sewing) are done to the closures. I am deciding on whether to use snaps or velcro. I am leaning towards velcro as I have red in the stash. Easier for staff to use.
Once they were done, I sewed Anna her leggings. The pattern is a delight to use.
I had them sewn in about 30 minutes.
Part of that time was spent making sure the waistband and leg hems were press well prior to stitching. I used a tiny zig zag on the seams and trimmed them back some.
When I turned my back, Anna got all the pieces out for her black wool slacks. They will be sewn next though I need to cut out Kate's slacks. Her's will be sewn after Anna's are done. I need to find Kate's legging pattern and make her a pair.
I am looking forward to pulling fabric out of the stash for the next projects. I am going to do two projects at a time; one for people and one for dolls. The dolls are asking for Easter outfits. As I mull over them, I will finish up a wall hanging and put a zipper in a pair of pants.
KnittingI have stalled on picking up the stitches for the gusset on Grandson's socks. I need to sit in the chair by the window and do it. I have knit on the dishcloth and will take it to Fibre Op tomorrow. On the list of knitting is sweaters for the dolls. They are quick and easy and I can add another pair of socks in there for Grandson.
TodayWe are heading out to go to a used bookstore and do a bit of shopping. Lunch will be at a favorite restaurant.
Until the next time....................
