Nothing much...

Apologies in advance for this photo-free update, but the camera is over there, and there are 2 cats on my lap. What can you do?

I got some gorgeous Liberty of London fabric for my birthday, and then an announcement of a super cute dress pattern in my email today. And I have a wedding to go to in August. So clearly it's fate. Although we'll see if that's actually enough time to get it done - I am a super slow sewer still.

Meanwhile I'm *thisclose* to finishing a skirt. I was zipping along until to the zipper. Mostly because I accidentally used the zipper intended for this skirt over Christmas. So I had to go get a new one, but I forgot to check the length and so bought the wrong length, and had to go get another zipper. Etc. etc. I really want to finish it before I move! I don't want this to be like the last skirt I didn't get finished before I moved, which then sat in limbo for 2 years.

I also (because I was in a sewing mood but hadn't picked up the second zipper) started cutting out a shirt pattern. I'm scared of sewing a shirt for myself, so I grabbed an old bedsheet to make a muslin first. Look at me, like a real sewer.

So, in conclusion, I am in the middle of a couple of things and dreaming of another. Maybe next week I can actually put thread to cloth!
