Taking a break is a good thing and I took full advantage of it this long weekend…and then some. My anniversary was Saturday so my sweetie took some extra time off and our little family sort of hid from the world. It’s the best kind of hiding one can do, in my opinion.
The bodice is progressing! Do I have pictures? No. But I do have the whole sizing thing down the way I like it, it’s cut out and boning has been applied. I’m well on my way to having the kirtle put together though I’m afraid that, at this pace, I won’t be completing the IRCC 3 challenge in time. No matter, I’m pressing on!!
I’m also distracting you with my shiny new cutting table. My birthday is in June so I decided to celebrate early. Isn’t that a cunning table? The side you can’t see has six shelves as well and holds my measuring stuff, scissors, current projects, etc.. At the time I took this picture, I was still debating what to store in the front, but it’s got lots of stuff there now and all my scraps have been moved to a better place. Eventually I’ll paint the sewing room but right now the whole re-org is making me pretty happy.
I hope all of you had a wonderful long weekend, (if you had one to enjoy). If not, I hope your summer is off to a grand start. Now that I’m caught up on loafing about, I’ll have more pictures to show plus this cool flower thing I started making. It’s cool. Trust me. It really is. 🙂
