My heels are sinking in the wet ground
Pan and Nan
Right after these photos were taken we had the largest hail storm I've seen here yet. Near the tail end of it 50 mallards flew into the pond and found the corn I put out.
Finished this 1948 outfit today and this is the second outfit I've made with the top too large. If I'd stuck with the pattern the way it was it would have fit better. Don't I have a manikin? yes I do it doesn't matter I don't trust it. No problem with the skirt as they are simple to fit. Well I'm not going to fool anymore with it as the fabric is not to my liking, if it were something more special yes. I will move on. My sweet friend Meri says I should step away for awhile but I'm not quite ready to do that yet. I really only sew a few hours a day, having my workouts in the morning at the gym, keeping up with the household chores, shopping, cooking meals, managing the money, outdoor mowing, etc. I can't sew if the house is messy or some task is looming over me.
Lunch today New York grilled steak, (locally grown grass fed beef no less) and salad. This was actually two meals worth for us.
What is next?
I'm cutting out a vintage Advance skirt pattern in brown cotton velvet.
