I’m sorry for the delay. It hasn’t been the best of weeks for us and at the end of it, I am thankful that everyone is all right.
My hubby was ill on Tuesday and while we were at the clinic, my dad called to say that mum had a car accident. Thank God she wasn’t injured but her car would be at the workshop for at least a week. So, hubby and I spent almost a day driving around checking on her, her car, meeting the owner of the car she collided with and finding a good workshop. Mum was shaking when we met her and complained of chest pains so we got her to visit the doctor and rest for a couple of days.
The following day, my lil princess fell in school and now sports a 2-centimeter bump on her forehead. We rushed her to the pediatrician that evening and had to observe her for 48 hours.
I felt tired and rather distracted this week after all that happenings and that I think made me indecisive and fickle. While working on my new Sew Weekly project for a summer dress, I decided half way through that I preferred the top and bottom as separates rather than a dress. So, I started on another dress on Thursday afternoon. I hope that project works out.
On a brighter note, reading all your comments here and on the Sew Weekly always cheers me up so thank you all for that. And while I was posting new photos on flickr, I discovered that the Honor Roll has made an adorable blouse from my sunny resort blouse pattern. I love that she used a stripe bias tape for contrast and finished her tie belt with those stripes too!
Julie from Vibrant Designs also made a pretty lace version of the 1-hour Kaftan. Love those sleeves!
I am so honoured that Chie from Viva Veritas found my piping tutorial easy to follow and created these new lovelies with piping! She is such a creative and inspiring talent and I can’t wait to see the photos of her outfits from her June photo shoot! Did you see her scallop waist skirt free pattern? I’m sewing that up for sure!
As some of you know, I started documenting tips/tutorials on a more regular basis since the beginning of the year so it feels fantastic each time someone uses them. One thing about coming up with tutes is I have no idea if I conveyed the steps clearly enough so it is quite reassuring when someone uses it and it works. Tutes can also be super time consuming to document so when it is used, I have a feeling that the time was well spent. Thank you so much ladies!
