This is the mountain of cloth and clothes that has been growing by the side
of my sewing machine over the last few months. I also had a strange week
maybe a month ago when every dress I put on seemed to snap a strap,
and it steered me down an all black path that I'm now growing tired of.
Considering my past as a dress hoarder I just shouldn't have
'I-have-nothing-to-wear' days. So a few days ago when Cinnamon man
was visiting friends I started catching up, mending 3 dresses while listening
to loud 90's music - and drinking wine :) And today I finally got around
to making a cover for Cinnamon man's foot (and computer) rest,
which until now has been two old sofa cushions on top of each other.
My next project is sewing and/or up-cycling a dress or two.
I'm thinking one in black mori style, maybe something patch-worky
with a lace raglan sleeve. And I have been wanting to try out a simple
shift dress for quite a while now. For that project I'm thinking of using
the brown jersey with flowers that can be spotted in the first picture.
Ps. My dad's doing well and is actually back at work today
(even thought he is a couple of years past retirement age...)
