Because we had friends for dinner on Saturday, the latter half of last week was taken up with obsessing about the Cuban feast I was making (Thank you Epicurious). It was good. pork infused with garlic and citrus then slowly grilled and the best black beans and rice ever!
The boys of summer on pet screening, another project in waiting
The next "to do" the Simplicity Daisy Kingdom dress and on the list make a collage, homework in Claudine Hellmuth's Class. So instead of my usual frantic "have to finish it" I am playing cool. Cut fabric Sunday, assemble collage, sew skirt today and finish collage. tomorrow read new class notes, and make top.
The work table
The iron is always up but only for sewing. Skirt semi complete, needs a band.
Recently had my machine serviced and now it sews better than ever. Really loving making these dresses. i'l just get good at it and she will want real clothes
I called this Ms Footsee meets High Fashion. i need to tart it up a bit.
The collage, for Claudine's class "composition". It is now apparent that composition was not included in my genes.
