The Weekly List
i also made a second flared wave skirt. jacey is putting buttonholes on it and the other one for me today. yay! apparently olias is helping! once i get those back, then i'll show you pictures (finally!).
i tried to make a wrap, really i did. i made a linen one. and it's just wretched. then i tried to make this one. problem is, the sleeves are too freaking tight, and, of course, i don't have enough fabric to cut out larger sleeves! not to mention, the knit fabric i used was NOT cheap, and i couldn't use a coupon on it! so that just made me even more frustrated. at any rate, since this was intended for my trip, and we leave wednesday, that means a trek to Jo-Ann tonight (and not the one by my house, either!) to get another yard of the fabric!!
i didn't get to the quilt top, but there's really no rush on that at all, since i'm planning it for a yet-to-be-conceived baby!
goals for this week:
---> take pictures of clothes made from ShapeShape book and post
---> finish knit drape cardi
---> pack, including a kit of handsewing and cross stitch
