To Do List....

Well things definitely seem a little busier....

There are so many things I want to make...

But here are the things I have to do...

Wrap and send these vintage cotton bikinis to Tigerlily...

Make this into a size 6-8 bandeau bikini for another lovely little girl...

Use the last of this for a 2-4 bandeau bikini...

Design a new swimsuit for a really little bubby girl,
I was thinking this print would be sweet...

What about the things I want to do?
Well, the list is endless...
I found reams and reams of natural linen at the rotary op-shop the other day.
I am thinking shorts, pants, et cetera...
Then some white poplin peasant tops....
I have all these sweet florals that would make great summer shorts too...
Oh, and all the vintage patterns I have been collecting need to see the light of day.

I am keen to make myself a pair of linen pants also...
last night while perusing etsy I found this store,
I bought this pdf pattern and am very excited to see how they turn out.

I'll try to keep you updated....
Right now I had better clear a space so I can cut out....
I like the kitchen bench for cutting out because of the extra height...
Where do you like to cut out?

It seems that the things we have to do often get in the way of those we want. Right now I am not taking any more orders from friends or family, ignoring the ones I already have and simply sewing for the fun of it. It's very liberating. Would you believe I use an old cot with a piece of solid mdf on it as my cutting station. Even though I am only 5'2" I like a high cutting surface and found the cot to be ideal. That soft pink will look perfect on baby skin. Cherrie

Anywhere there is a clear surface apparently! x

You do have quite a list of musts but at least you're ticking things off. Did you receive the pants pattern yet? I had a look at the Etsy store and there's some gorgeous dresses. I'll be interested to hear what you think of the pattern.
Happy sewing,
Abbe
