|Sterling and Amethyst...|
Well, I do know, I guess. My husband and our carpenter are building a storage building on our property that will support solar panels on one of the roofs. I've taken over hiking the dogs every morning, then fixing them a large meal at lunch time. In between, its errands. Clean up and a bit of rest after, and by the time this has all gone down, its 3pm. I truly have had very little time to donate to sewing lately, and the heat wave that has been persistent around these parts is stifling.
|...A Visit To the Zoo|
Towards the end of the commission, I'd pulled out this beautiful dark teal silk I'd had on hand, and felt it might be nice to stay in "small size" sewing mode for a bit. So I made my own Sterling and Amethyst outfits for A Visit To the Zoo.
|Sterling brave and handsome!|
At first I wasn't thrilled with these costumes, and know that were I to make them again, there would be different steps taken in their constructions. However, with the addition of "toppers", I DO like them. A lot. And, so I am sharing them with you.
|Amethyst delicate and charming.|
I cannot say what next I'll be working on, but given a few days' time away from the machine, I'm sure I'll come up with something. Oh, yes. Now I remember!
Happy July to everyone. Enjoy each day no matter what it brings.
