It’s Hot. I’m English – I don’t do hot. It’s muggy too. Only to be expected after all the rain that fell [remember the floods a few months ago?] and consequently all the residual moisture hanging about. But I like sunny, fresh, breezy, comfortable days, and not just because I’m past my sell-by date either. Even as a child this was what I expected of my Summers. But the world’s gone mad along with the weather and we now do tropical it seems. But the gardens seem to approve and mine in particular has gone mad and here are the picture to prove it.
On the sewing front, I helped a friend draft and grade a princess seamed top [Burda 8503, my version 3 posts back]. She was resurrecting her sewing skills after many years and it was quicker to start from fresh in many ways. We had a fun three and a half days and she drove home wearing it happily. I have just got to cut out the lining for the Burda M104 Jacket. I am going to make a second one with a few very minor adjustments in the way I sew it. The drafting of the pattern was excellent considering the cut pieces were cut out yonks ago and sat in bag bundled up, so I am happy it came together very well. I have a few blouses/tops in mind too, so quite a bit to keep me out of trouble. In the garden I have been weeding and weeding and weeding and weeding, but I am losing the battle so I think I will just give in gracefully!.
