Two posts in one day really is a first for me.  Just winding up a few months of activity calls for round upin preparation for the restart.  We leave Friday in the RV for a few days with great friends and a haze of wine tastings and food.  
So whats on the work space today.  Today, windsup a frenzy of shorts making.  life now is shorts in summer, made by me and pants in winter; Chico's brand as they fit and no need to waste time finding something different for sitting in my studio/ office/atalier!!!  
the scene
four pairs from Simplicity 2258 I love the turn up and button

A button for each pair. 
All the red are vintage ;Silver is a whatever

The button will be sewn on and the turn-up basted or else the shorts mess up.  this will be a task as we travel north.

here is the Wednesday look.  The remaining pair of cut up shorts fabric, yellow, placed so i do not forget to make them on our return.  note book ready, as for this trip the travel journal will be a glue book of stuff collected during the trip made on return and hence note book needed.
wow does the work table look huge

A quick Swiffer around to collect any fallen pins, needles or other cat dangers.
note ladders a must for we shorties.  

that's it; time for dinner making and a couple of glasses of wine. (Today, My annual gynecologist visit went well and i have not put on weight, clothes must be shrinking!)
Tatty bye.

  6. Hi Monica,

    I've started buying some fat quarters just because material is so darn pretty! I do have a sewing machine but it's at the back of the closet!

    If you haven't stopped by please do, I have blog candy up for grabs!

    Happy WOYWW

  7. Great looking shorts you are making. Went to the store and bought some fabric pieces today so hope to start soon myself making some pants for winter. Have a great holiday! ope you have a great week and thanks for sharing. Vickie #38

  8. Your shorts look fabulous and you are so lucky to still be able to wear them ... even if we ever had the weather here in Scotland these legs are for my eyes only now :)) Your desk does look long, but if you are cutting out material you need plenty of room to lay the fabric out. I hope you enjoy your few days away with your friends. Elizabeth x #54

  9. Hi Monica, thanks for popping by a few weeks ago - I haven't been on my blog for a while so just catching up. Love the shorts, especially the black and white with a bit of red, with large flowers. Love the chunky book pages below too :-)
