Alas, we're back to marginal progress on the sewing front.
But there was a little forward movement!
Another flower done! Slowly sewing!
And I've started receiving flowers, too:
Aussie Handmade Birthday Swap #ahbcparty3
Finally started making my backlist of gifts!
Starting with the 1-Hour Basket by kelbysews.
Really simple, very effective, and I must try it in patterned linens next!
And there's a bit of an extra 'surprise' in there. I couldn't give it alone as a gift, but with something else that's finished, I think it's okay.
I have notes for making the next three gifts, although at least one of them has no notes for her entry whatsoever, just her name. I shall have to go back and double-check the mail from a year ago.
1. summer dress
2. Soroptimists' quilt
I have this weekend entirely free. There will be a great deal of sewing.
1. finish the next gift for #ahbcparty3
2. finish sewing together the Soroptimist's Quilt
3. finish the summer dress
4. start another summer dress
I also want to start working on outfit for the Superheroes Ball at DragonCon - like the Marvel Avengers dresses that Her Universe are putting out, only for my favourite character:
Maria Hill, as played by Cobie Smulders. Whom extremely few people notice, or could even name from the movies.
The dress spec (as described by me):
Agent of SHIELD dress: halterneck, close-fitting bodice with waistband and flared skirt to be worn with petticoats. Black/dark-grey silk with gunmetal/silver overdress/lace edging, and embroidered/beaded/appliqued SHIELD logo to either be on skirt or else as a back cutout (underarm zipper), with HYDRA-themed underskirt.I have four weeks to do this.
Never let it be said that I'm not ambitious.
Linking up to Freshly Pieced's WIP Wednesday.
What have you done this week?
