Yesterday’s Soyokaze finish was the last “official make” I’d planned for our trip. Doesn’t it look great with the tote?of course you do have to imagine it on me … with no pin holding it in place. and for sure a top. and pants.
The tote was a lot of fun to make (even the cutting wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be) and the lining fabric – a Rifle Paper Co print on canvas (purchased at my “local” fabric store – sadly, the shop is a 45 minute drive in good traffic, but still…) – makes me smile every time I see it.
Thanks to those finishes, I felt good about devoting today to Other Things (besides making. and happy to report my pre-trip to-do list has all the boxes checked!)
I did do a little more making last night. Here’s the beginning of a pair of Malabrigo Hand Thingies, using a lovely wool/silk/cashmere skein from my stash.I have a couple of appointments over the next two days (plus more TGBBS!) that should give me plenty of time to finish them before we leave.
So … late this afternoon, once I checked off that last to-do, I turned on the iron, pressed the pre-washed fabric, and cut out another Uniform.
no pressure, right?!
Joining in with Carole and company today … and guessing they all have posts that will make finding three a whole lot easier 😉 Happy Thursday!
