I want to thank all of you for your concern and good wishes about my eye surgery and resulting problem. My eye has healed and I'm ready for another surgery next week. Ready is probably not the right word. Reconciled. Because of the way the anesthetic stays with me, I'll have two days that are worry free. I'll be totally happy! Giddy. Stupid.
I have a black knit fabric that has black, raised, textured flowers. It's thin. I bought it for a pattern that ended up being a wrong choice. So today, I made my old standby cardi. It's my "go to" thing when I want to sew but don't want to have to think about it or figure anything out. Lazy sewing. The fabric was perfect for it and it was quick and easy. Painless.
The last pattern sale at Jos I bought these patterns.
I like the lines on the McCall outerwear jacket. It has a saddle shoulder--something you don't seem often. And the See&Sew coat has a cute, full back. Who knows when or if they will get made. I think of my patterns as a collection, and truly, how many of us actually sew all the patterns we have? Still, they are comforting, aren't they? Especially when they are on sale so inexpensive.
I have traced and altered the Cutting Line Designs HeartsAFlutter overblouse. I believe Shams may have made it so I'll have to check her blog and PR to find it. I know it runs very large, so I used the finished garment measurements, which is what I always do, anyway. That's on the agenda for tomorrow.
