It's been a busy few days, what with soccer sign ups, birthday parties, present shopping for the most awkward to buy for child in the world, passport applications etc. so I think that this will be the last thing that gets made this week. The shirt was made on Friday, the chicken scratch embroidery was done on Saturday (at a birthday party - yes, I am a little ashamed that I was that anti-social...).
It was my first attempt at chicken scratch. I rather like it. I was tempted to put designs all over the shirt, having to remind myself that I tend to like clothes on the plain side and less is more and whathaveyou.
I was not so keen on the fabric, mind. It's nice and gauzy to wear, but it's a pain to sew.
So, all in all, probably not one of my most productive KCWCs, but it did get me sewing again. I don't know why I had been shying away from the machine in recent months, but it did feel good to get back in the, um, saddle. Hmm, hadn't notice the blue theme for the week until now...
Ok, I had better get going and do some laundry. Thanks Meg for getting me out of my rut. Take care all,
