Good Morning Quilters! I am back in Grand Rapids where my sewing machines are.....where my stash is.....where my collection of UFO's reside.
From last week: The cotton yarn stash is turning into dish clothes and it is a great "car trip" project. So far, I've knitted four and am started to crochet the fifth one.
First this week, I am altering a new dress I just bought. We are going to a couple of weddings soon, and I felt the need to buy a new frock. I seldom wear dresses, but I do like them. This new dress is perfect in almost every way. Not perfect? The neckline is too low in front. (Hubby says "What's wrong with that?") I gave him an eye roll. I decided I could fix it by taking the belt (a chiffon long tie) and repurposing it around the neckline and it would then have a soft bow in the front, covering the low neckline. That's the plan, so I will see if it will work. Otherwise, I may go with plan B...wear an old dress or plan C...buy another new dress. I will let you know next week what happens. The dress:
It doesn't look too low on her, but she's a model....and probably never leans forward or turns her body. But everything fits perfectly when you are a model, right? But I'm an ordinary modest lady, who will be wearing a dress with a bow in the front. :)
What are you working on this week? I read your blogs and you make me want to start new quilts all the time. You are so creative! The new fabric lines coming out this fall are tempting too. My "finish my UFOs" commitment and the "use my stash" commitment must be renewed weekly. Sigh.
Please join the Design Wall Monday linky party below and show us what you are doing. Remember, you don't have to have a design wall, but a design wall really helps you if you can find a place for one. Big thanks to those of you who mention Design Wall Mondays on your blog, and provide a link back to this page. You are my kind of people. So, let's get this party going!
