Sewing Through the Rain
I tried to come up with 10 .... errr, bit of a push that, but I did come up with quite a few!
1. It's sale time in the shops!!!! I'm not a great lover of traipsing round the shops, but its an OK activity when its raining. John Lewis has its usual awesome sale and I got all this Amy Butler fabric at half price!!!
4. I still have some veggies in the greenhouse that haven't been decimated by slugs in the way all those in the ground have. Maybe a bumper crop of cucumber and butternut squash is awaiting me later in the year.
I have two aprons to make as presents for two little girls who are expecting a baby brother or sister at the end of July. As baby arrivals are by nature unpredictable I really ought to be prepared, so i've been concentrating on getting these made this week. Roslyn loves purple. The first fabric I bought wasn't purple enough, so I went all out with solid purple and brightened it up with an appliqued flower and ric rac.
I've made up the pattern as I went along in the hope of being able to share it with you all... just depends whether my IT skills are great enough to be able to convert a drawn pattern to a PDF or not.
We shall see.
In the meantime, if you are having day after day of summer rain too, look for the positives! I'd love to know what your are!!!
