And there you have it folks. One nice and comfy top completed earlier this week, one steampunk skirt from earlier this year, and a half-finished tote bag. Funny story about that actually. Last night I was seriously falling asleep on the way home from work because of all the 2 a.m. sewing stints, so I decided to take a nap and get up later that night to finish some sewing and do some cleaning since my sister came to visit today. But, of course, I slept like a rock through my alarm going off every 5 minutes and awoke promptly at 6 a.m. thismorning. I got up and cleaned the house as well and as fast as I could, and then I made the bag you see above in 20 minutes flat. I needed a purse for today so I just did basic structural sewing, and I will show it off more once I line it and put a closure on it, and I will probably gusset the corners too.
And for the cold weather, a new scarf I finished last week at the knit group and a very-nearly-completed cape. I just need to add a mandarin collar to it and then I will show it off more as well. I still love the way the steampunk skirt converts into a long version for warmth.
And yes, I did start the sweater today, even if the progress is less than I would have liked. Let's hope I can finish it by the end of the month, I really want my dressmaker's dummy!
