I finished all the dresses I had officially planned with the new fabric. I am really enjoying the a-line and simple sheath shapes. With everything with a bit of grey in the tones, I am feeling very elegant even though my body is swollen in interesting places due to infection. I keep hoping that I will heal faster but that just does not happen.
After each dress was done, I cut all the scraps up into squares. As I put together the quilts I have already laid out, I am making more quilt blocks. I am finding these very exciting and calming. This will be the first quilt that will have cashmere and wool in it with linen and cotton. Also, it will be the first quilt that is all solid.
It is going to be hard to be away from it for almost two weeks. We are going to the mountain and I am not taking my "portable" sewing machine. I will have one spinning project and one crochet project with me, and my sewing kit. If I really want to sew, I will hand sew. It will not be the first time.
I am rather tired and with the chaos happening at work, I am looking forward to being on the mountain. It will not be long enough. Maybe I will take a few squares to hand sew. I have many. It would work.
