This week I spent a lot of time doing sewing that doesn't make for blog posts -- finishing off a stack of masks, for one. I think I'm finally done with that, at least for a while. I have enough for myself and my husband now, so will take a break. I find mask sewing so boring! ;)
|A lot of masks!|
I also went through some of my already cut projects and prepped them with the necessary interfacing and so forth. Now they are ready to tackle. And, PatternReview's Wardrobe Contest is starting next week so I took a look at the rules: 10 pieces that all go together. That's a lot, and in reality there is no way I'll do it, even in the 2 month contest period, but I couldn't help myself and went down a rabbithole of searching my fabric and pattern stash for ideas of what I would make *if* I was going to sew along. It was a fun evening but not very productive, lol!
Mostly though, I've been looking ahead at what I have coming up in September.
The next round of the Literary Sewing Circle starts in a week, on Sept 18th! I'm excited to announce the new title next week, and think it will be a great choice to read together. I've been working on some posts and information for that, and am looking forward to another round.
I've also finally signed up for the Burda Teaching Certification Course that I've been eyeing for a couple of years. I decided that I'm ready to give it a go this fall; it starts Sept 28 so I'll have a busy Burda autumn. Hoping that I'll enjoy the process; I do love a Burda pattern so think it will be interesting.
Other than planning, prepping and reading I haven't had time for much else. How's your sewing month going so far?
I'm looking forward to the new title - I can't wait to see what it is!ReplyDelete
I avoid the "B" word, so mask making is... "utilitarian" 😱. I keep myself occupied redesigning, tweaking, and avoiding them. (In reality I make the masks and avoid the fun stuff. Sigh.)
P.S. What is your preferred mask pattern?ReplyDelete
I have been using the Dhurata Davies pattern, as I really like the fit. Also I am not making any to sell so that pattern works for me.Delete
So excited it is LSC time again! Can't wait to find out the title.ReplyDelete
As for sewing, it has been on a temporary hold - spent a good couple of months organising a two day spinning event. But that has come and gone, wonderful time had by all. Now, for the sewing ...
Sounds like a fun activity & so glad it was a success. I am excited about the LSC too :)Delete
So, you are going to teach? What an exciting step. It will be great to hear of your experience.ReplyDelete
Oh, I hope I can actually use the course to teach but my goal is to learn the techniques & see how I like it. Maybe I'll teach if I find time to fit it in!Delete
