I did finish up Jen's little owl parliament (yep, I googled it. A group of owls is called a parliament. Isn't that lovely??). Here they are looking a bit mischevious on our front lawn:
My personal project this week is making a chevron skirt out of striped jersey fabric. One of my new clients, Maria, ordered one and I wanted to get some practice before cutting out her lovely Ella Moss fabric from HartsFabric.com.
I'm using a turqouise and tan fabric from fabric.com (no longer available) and I'm excited to show you the results (and a tutorial!) next week.
I made a muslin of Spencer's skirt and now I can't wait to get down to the real thing. It's a six-panel a-line skirt with contrast fabric between the panels. I get to work with Joel Dewberry's Heirloom Empire Weave Garnet fabric again, and I love the richness of this design.
Other than that I've been ordering tons of fabric for fall (July 4th sales) and I can't wait for the boxes to start arriving! I think I could get drunk on fabric.
This week I hope to finish Spencer's skirt and start on Maria's, while finishing off my skirt and another personal project. And I'll be taking some time out to grill and drink cocktails with Devon tomorrow. Hope you all have a wonderful week!
