Totally my own fault. I woke up early and hit the ground running. Showered, dried and dressed at stupid o'clock, what to do?
knitting, no, don't want to sit still. Crochet, ditto. Sewing, finished everything that was cut out.
AHA, little chink of light.
Get the sewing list out, get the fabric out, find the pins, patterns and scissors and get busy.
This soft polycotton has been in the stash forever, now it will become a robe and pj's. Francesca will love them. Well she will if she knows whats good for her.
This is another soft polycotton, a little heavier as it has a higher percentage of cotton, this little bundle is also a robe and pj's.
I should say here that I am not making a traditional button through pj jacket. Instead I am making a version of my birdcage dress bodice. This will be cooler for Fran and no buttons for her to lose. No need to ask me why that is a good thing!
This last, but not least, sad little roll is another robe. The fabric is cotton shirting and has a soft feel but with enough body to give it a crisp finish. Perfect for the SO, I do have rather a lot so PJ's may follow, possibly 2 pairs.
But, before I commit myself I will rootle through the pattern stash for a shirtdress, I am sure there is one hiding in there somewhere.
This day is still to make up its mind as to what weather we will get. It has vacillated between brilliant sunshine and grey dullness. The washing will be hung out just as long as it stays dry.
The day's jobs are all done and I will get all the robes made first. Then the pj bottoms and then the tops. I hope to have them all completed by tomorrow afternoon. That way the decks will be cleared before dinner needs cooking and I can decide whether to make the elusive shirtdress up or not.
WooHoo, it looks as though the sun has won the day so I am off to peg out.
