Its been a while!
I have been in sunny Darwin soaking up the warm and sunshine and NOT working. It was wonderful, but now I'm back.
After seeing two street performers having a battle and visiting Kakadu for a beautiful sunset, it was time to come home to the cold and rainy weather! (Boo Hoo).
But the good news is we (me and my photographer) are back just in time for Self Stitched September!!!
But I did come back to a very messy sewing room >>>
|Trims trims trims everywhere!|
So the sewing mojo was wavering due to NOT wanting to tidy anything (Still in holiday mode)
So I had a bit of a read....
And all of a sudden the mojo came back!
So I did a quick clean up and got cracking on another shirt for my lovely gent.
The man picked the fabric again, and did a good job yet again. Well done sir!

The pattern was another Ebay grab:
I'm starting to love sewing shirts! whenever I see nice plaids or stripes I think SHIRTS!
I am sewing version 1 with the button down collar in the pretty.... I mean..manly plaid fabric (above) we picked it up in Darwin.
The only problem is there are no instructions for the sleeve plackets..... It just says cut two strips and it has a really confusing picture..........and then....
So after slight frustration it was time for a cup of tea.
And to prepare for Self Stitched September!
Since I have to wear a company skirt or trousers to work Monday to Friday, it may be quite challenging.
I will have to find all of my tops and probably make a few more too.
But since today was the first day, here is the hard evidence, The paparazzi shot >>>
So thats me on day 1, fresh home from work, disheveled, grumpy and yelling at my lovely man to
"take a photo take a photo!"
The self made item is the cardi. Made using: Design it Yourself Clothes Book by Cal Patch.
It is made from a warm stretchy fleece type fabric (thats the technical term... not) and is so warm.
It looks a little wrinkled in this photo... and the garden does look a little overgrown now you mention it.
Oh and thats the lovely work skirt! tee hee
So thats all folks!
Hope your all well and happy :-)
What is everybody sewing???
