Ashamed, ashamed, ashamed……….

My last post was in January, and since then I have stitched a grand total of………

NOTHING!!!!

How bad is that?  No, I tell a lie – I have turned up a further two pairs of jeans.  Does that count?  No?  Thought not.  Granted, a lot of my time this year has been spent shooting with The Pix Factory (I am the lighting monkey, the bag carrying monkey and the transport monkey – my husband is the super-talented photographer).  However, that is no excuse.

So.  I’m getting myself organised.  I’ve been in touch with local designer Helen Rhiannon about signing myself up for a pattern cutting workshop.  She’s in Oz until March but she says that she’ll have her workshops up and running as soon as she gets back.  I’m also simply going to pull my finger out and so some stitching again in the meantime.  I’ve had two ladies suits hanging up in my sewing room since July – they just need hems altering.  So I’m going to do that today (the poor woman must think she’s never going to get them back!).  A good excuse to blow the dust off my machine.  And then I have a skirt for myself that needs finishing – all it needs is the lining to be inserted, facings added and turn up the hem.  How long would that take!  A couple of hours – including coffee breaks.  Get on with it woman!

I’m also hoping to get myself signed up for a Photographic Make Up course at our local college.  Hoping to be a very busy bunny in the very near future.  Watch this space…..
