Thanks to those who have asked what happened to me after my last blog! Well, when the weather turned hot I turned to knitting and crocheting and limited my sewing to just making basic items to go with the crafted items. It didn't seem like I was being very creative in the "sewing sense" but as I look back at my summer's products I feel like it was a fun wardrobe to have as I traveled extensively (visiting fabric and yarn stores along the way).
I've realized that it's a tremendous advantage to be able to sew just the right thing to "Make an outfit" with a hand-knitted top, rather than have to search for the right color and fit in rtw. Here are some of the summer's outfits:
I'm busy now working on my fall knitted/sewn ensembles ---what fun it is to combine my love of different types of needlework! later, peg
