It’s so hot here. Well, I have to qualify that. It’s *unusually* hot here. It was about 90 degress today…15 degrees above our “normal” mid-70’s. I don’t enjoy the heat, which is why I’m glad I live near Seattle. Days like this are rare. Being pregnant doesn’t help, either. But I’m not complaining about that! just the heat. It’s about 8 pm now, and it’s actually hotter in the house than it is outside…especially in my west facing sewing room.
I did want to share that I got the little hedgie zipper pouch put together this morning before my sewing room turned into an oven. Here it is:
Pretty cute, eh? It’s listed for tomorrow night’s stocking at Beautiful Enchantments.
For the next few days, I’m working on a lovely dress for the daughter of a friend. It’s a full length, long sleeve, fitted bodice dress that is meant to resemble those of the late 1800’s. The pattern is for a more colonial style, so I’m altering here and there. It won’t be “period accurate”, but it will be perfect for what she wants to wear it to…a local historical site. This is the first time I’ve attempted a dress like this and the young lady is away camping until the day before she wants it, so it’s going to be a challenge…but I’m up for it!
Besides the dress, I have orders for three Mix It Up aprons, pants and a skirt for another customer and Retro Femme stocks on Friday, so it will be a busy week!
