What's up next? I think Tilly and the Button's Miette skirt is next. I purchased it earlier this week and spent a night taping it together. That's the first pattern I've bought as a .pdf and taped...and maybe the last. Taping is not for me. I think I prefer to pay the extra (as I have with all my other patterns so far) and have it shipped to me as a printed pattern. I got out the paper cutter and made a lot of quick trims, but NOT my cup of tea, and btw, I LOVE tea! I am 100% a tea drinker and cannot stand coffee.
Finally, I have moved upstairs to the semi-finished sewing room! The walls are drywalled and painted, but it's lacking any storage shelves so far, and any of it's permanent cutting/sewing surfaces. I almost bought a 1940s huge teacher's desk earlier this week, which would have made a kick-ass cutting surface, but it's unlikely that we would have been able to actually get it upstairs :-(. Plan B is to hit up Ikea for butcher block countertops and build a custom cutting table and sewing/serger desk.
|Stairs to the left, sewing table up against banister.|
|Down the narrowish stairs...|
|Where the ceiling comes down is where the shelves will be built.|
|Shelves all along low wall.|
|Half bath through the door to the left of the chimney.|
|Empty right side of room. Closets eventually the whole length of the room.|
Then Sunday a ferry ride to Seattle for the Urban Craft Uprising. This will be my first time, but I've heard it's amazing! All independent crafter from across the Western U.S. And then Monday a trip to Seattle again with Grammy and the kids to see Woodland Park Zoo. Not too much sewing time in there, but maybe a little?
