Sewing and Quilting up a Storm!

This week I managed to make quite a few things – because it pretty much rained all week!  Last Friday the weather reports for the weekend said to expect the worse storm in 50 years!  So I went home and battened down all the hatches on Athena, rolled up the awning, made sure the propane tanks were filled… And then waited and hoped that the storm wouldn’t blow all these trailers over like dominoes!

While I waited I made a sleeveless tunic for work.  I’ve been trying to use up fabric that I have had for YEARS including this black with white polka dots-  almost sheer knit fabric.  I had to buy a lining fabric to line it with, because it was just a little too sheer! 

(Once again I ask for forgiveness with the pictures!  I recently took up running again and well – this is how I look afterwards.) 


Because it is fully lined,  I had to alter the pattern to compensate for a full lining instead of just a neck facing.  So basically I made two tunics and sewed them together.

 

I like the asemetrical design, but next time I will make it all the same length so I don’t have to worry about it being ‘off trend’.

By the way- the storm of the century never did show up.  It rained and the wind blew – but it was just another PNW day!

Sunday I rented time on a longarm and started quilting my Gypsy Wife quilt.  After 3 hours of working on it – I am not even half way done. So needless to say I’ll be working on it again this coming weekend.
