Hello all looks like I survived Christmas! Whew another one under my belt! It seems to take more energy and time to do what I used to do with great ease, but it's really nice to see the whole family together especially the children and their smiles on Christmas morning, makes the whole thing worthwhile!
Now it's on to the New Years celebrations and then back to normal. Thought I could do a bit of work today but it was not in the cards, the car decided to take a break and not start! GRRRRRR!!!!
So I stayed calm, went back inside and altered a jacket. No point in wasting the time I have at home. Yesterday I was going to fuse the silk for the wedding gown with some underlining, thought I would try it first to see how the silk takes to the fusion, good job I did the silk did not like the underlining at all, not even a little bit!!!!!!! The problem being the honey-comb design of the ironing board (even with extra padding) would emboss into the silk! So no dice I have to get some pelon and sew it into the gown to keep the silk from wrinkling as much as it normally would.
The jacket turned out wonderfully well! Guess we should count our blessings :)
Happy New Year to all my students, all who read my blog periodically and first time readers! See you in 2016!
