The weather has not been this good all week, so I've got a lot of sewing done. I am the crazy lady that takes her sewing machine on holiday with her. This is not quite a crazy as it sounds, first of all we drive here and then we stay in a lovely self catering house, with lots of room for me to spread out my sewing stuff.
So I brought nine projects with me (maybe a little over the top) and I have managed to finish seven of them, not bad going.
So first of all I completed my second Grainline Moss Mini (I got this pattern in the Indie Pattern Swap last year in IPM on The Monthly Stitch). I have no idea what the fabric it, it has been in my stash a long time, but I thought it was a good neutral colour that would go with lots of things (and it goes with my stripey tights).
I'm wearing it with my next make a Navy Jennifer Lauren Handmade Gable Top. This top is so quick to make and I don't even have an overlocker.
I took about 5cm of the length of the top and the sleeves, because I had only bought 75cm of fabric. I bought the Gable Dress expansion pack last week, so I definitely see a Gable dress in my future.
Next is another Compagnie M Susanne Cardigan. This is my forth time making this pattern (first time blogging about) and I just love it. I also have it in a purple marl ponte, a teal boiled wool and a cycles jersey. As with most Compagnie M patterns there are wonderful feature pockets.
|I am really happy with this cardigan despite the look on my face!|
I did do a little unselfish sewing, I made a wallet for my goodie bag swap for the next Yorkshire Spoolettes meet-up - so no photo yet. And I made another pair of Thread Theory Jedediah Pants for Fluffrick from a lovely soft corduroy. Fluffrick says these are the most comfortable trousers he owns, this is the third pair I have made for him, a forth will be on the way soon.
Home tomorrow, hopefully it won't be too wet a drive. It would be nice if Arran wasn't a 55 minute ferry ride and five hour drive away from home, but it's worth the effort.
