The other, other fiber hobby

I've recently decided to try my hand, yet again, at sewing. Third time and everything, right?*

So we've a great store where I can take courses here and there. They've got a back room full of machines that are free to use whenever classes aren't in session. So far, I've completed one project:



A reversible sundress for Jeneric. Which she loves!

I'm in the process of making some napkins for home use. If time permits the next time I'm at a machine, I plan to tackle bloomers to go with Jeneric's dress.

*Full disclosure: first time in third grade to finish a scout badge; second time in 7th grade as part of home ec. You'd think having a mother who's an accomplished quilter and seamstress would help with motivation. Or maybe not, eh?

Happy (belated) Canada Day!

Although I am not Canadian (not yet, at any rate), I celebrated Canada day by not getting burnt. I know, seems like such a small way to celebrate (what, no screech?), but if you'd seen the burn I got two Canada days ago, well, you'd be applauding my efforts.

Huzzah for Canada! Thanks for not invading the lower 48 (or Alaska or Hawai'i). We'll see if we can return the favor.
