First of all , I would like to thank all of you for the well wishes and prayers. The more prayers the better, they are helping and working. My mother is doing better every day but I know it's going to be a long road. My MIL is doing alright as well. I just wish we could get her to stop smoking as the doctors have told us that is one thing she can't do. But, she is not willing to stop.
In other news, my project for Knit Picks is coming along nicely. I should be done soon, since it's due back to them by the end of the month. Then hopefully I can get back to my knitting projects that are already in progress.
This past weekend I worked on New Look 6828.
No time like the present to get this one done since I've only had it cut out and sitting since late Spring. I did View A with sleeves. I love this dress. I purchased the fabric at one of my favorite places, Fabric Warehouse in Bensalem, PA. The construction was very simple and easy. The hardest part was doing the gathers.
After that, you pretty much fly through the rest of the it. I wore it to work today and got quite a number of compliments. Once they found out I made the dress, a few of the girls including my boss asked me if I could make them one. I have to think about that one, as I wouldn't know what to charge and if it's worth it.
I also reworked my mother's padded cushion for her travel wheelchair. I talked about it in my last post. Well, the staples weren't going into the boarding all the way, so I went to JoAnn's and found upholstery tacks and used those instead. I actually think it looks nicer.
Last week I got a chance to iron the pattern pieces for McCalls 5978 and Butterick 5030. This week hopefully I'll cut out the fabric and finally cut out the pieces for my trench coat. I am so behind on that.
