No, I have not disappeared into the dark nether regions of the blogosphere, never to be heard or seen again. It's just that I haven't posted for the last two weeks because I have been so busy
sewing studying hard. There is a lot of writing we have to submit early next week. I have made two things, and of course, my usual sewing substitute when studying, stashing on the side.
|A piece of knit, and a lovely wool/polyester blend tweed.|
|Poplin, for when I next need to make DH a nightshirt.|
|Polyester ponte and ?acrylic rib knit from Op Shop.|
Stashed: 1 metre of cotton, nylon/ Spandex knit
2 metres of black and white tweed
2.5 metres of polyester knit from op shop
2 metres of polyester ponte weight knit, op ship
8 metres of nightshirt fabric for replacements, DH. This doesn't really count as it is not for me!
Purchased and used - 2 meters of fleecy
Used from stash - 2.1 of poly/nylon rib (jacket)
So, the stash has increased again! by 3.5 metres approximately.
I only purchased one pattern, and that is to replace one that has been cut and not able to be easily re-used. No Burda Magazines, no PDF's. I have been
quite restrained virtuously studying.
I've converted this pattern
to this jacket, first made as a wearable muslin in a polyester-nylon rib knit fabric.
And a second version in a tracksuit fleece, polyester and cotton. Warm and snuggly.
And I have also started work on this shirt. I hope to have a post about this in a few days time:
A very hasty post, a very quick review of the month, now back to study. Groan. Still, the semester will be over in a few months, and then I will be having a holiday in the second half of the year. Well deserved, after all the hassle of sorting out problems with DH's practice in the last two years. Who would have thought my early training would have come back to help and haunt me at this stage in life! More later :)
I hope you are all happy and sewing,
