Hello all I hope the Holidays were happy, spent with family and friends and of course a lot of food! I haven't posted in a while because of the Holidays, still trying to catch up with the to-do list, still working on chapter one, may give up on it and start chapter 2!
I will be taking a vacation this year for a change so I'm actually trying to finish a bunch of work, I have 7 garments to finish by January 20; 5 are done and then I ran out of fabric for the remaining 2 so this project is on a holding pattern for the time being.
While I wait for the fabric I have a suit, jacket and pants, to finish before leaving. Today I completed the pad-stitching that was started yesterday, put the pockets in, put the jacket together ready for the sleeves; the suit was cut way before Christmas...
The grandkids were up for a couple of days, they were supposed to return home today but the impending inclement weather scared everyone into getting them home early leaving me with a full day to work today.
Before Christmas I completed the men's jacket with the bufant roses that turned out so beautiful if I do say so myself! The client came to pick it up a few days ago and his comment was that it looks like a work of art! This made me very happy!
Now it's back to class on Thursday with a full day in Bradford focusing on the skirts and volants. It will be nice to see the class again!
Have a good week!
