Anyway, it's also the start of Memorial Day weekend and I'm on vacation until next Wednesday. Yes, even though I'm working from home, we've been encouraged to take vacation days so here I am.
Since I'm not an outdoors kinda girl, opening the beaches means nothing to me...although weather wise it's gonna be cool for most of the weekend and a little rainy...but I guess if you're stir crazy at home...it is an alternative. Me, I'm going to sleep later, read some and sew some. I don't have any specific sewing plans. I'm going to let the fabric talk to me.
In the meantime...
I've been working on another version of Simplicity 8888, using a striped linen from the collection.
It's almost finished - just needs facings. So pictures probably early next week due to weather.
And, do you listen to the Love To Sew Podcast? This week's podcast is called Sew Inspired about who inspire sewists. Helen and Caroline share the sewists that inspire them then they list sewists who have been inspired by other sewists. That was a lot of sewists, smile!
I'm thrilled to have been mentioned by my fellow sewists. There's also a link to the podcast I did with Helen and Caroline in October 2018. Since we have time on our hands, maybe have a listen. This is the 146th podcast and there are so many interesting small business sewists and sewing figures in the community that have been interviewed. Not to mention podcasts about sewing techniques and fabrics. So go, have a listen, enjoy!
Me...I'm going to be finishing up this dress and working on a couple more garments. If you're in the US, I hope you enjoy the Memorial Day weekend and stay safe out there!
...as always more later!
