The Weekly List
first, the recap of last week:
finish scarf blouse: fail. the fabric was a huge PITA to work with, causing me problems, and then i noticed that i had somehow managed to get a tiny hole in the front of the blouse.
BUT . . . i cut another blouse, sans scarf pieces, out of a linen blend, to see if perhaps i could omit the side buttons and just pull it over my head. this turned out great, and i'll show you pics later this week, together with the flared wave skirt i whipped up from the same book. now that i know i can pull the blouse on without having buttons or a zip, i think i'll spend some time seeing if i can fix/finish the polyester voile one and mend the tiny hole. i think some fray check might suffice.
remove paper from log cabin blocks and piece top: Partial success. i did get all the papers removed, but that alone took me almost three hours! each block took 3 minutes!!!
cut and finish knit wrap: total fail. did not even start.
nonetheless, it was a great week, with me meeting my walking goals the first few days of the week, and attending a lovely wedding this weekend.
goals for this week:
---> make second Flared Wave Skirt
---> make knit wrap
---> assemble log cabin quilt top
---> fix and finish voile scarf blouse
looks like i'll have a busy week! how about YOU?
