Cutting and pasting

Ahhh.  Holidays.  Today I've been to the beach, had a nice coffee and nearly finished the Sydney Morning Herald Crossword.  We're doing it every day this week over morning tea.

I've also cut out the Uptown Girl Jacket for Ellie, which is a lot of cutting when you have exterior, lining and padding pieces.  My wadding is now fused and I'm ready to sew! So nice to be there after all the preparation....sewing it up is like painting the last few coats after preparing the wall.

In between sewing I've been having interesting conversations with a 20 month old, eagerly anticipating the arrival of a new member of our extended family, watching Playschool and scraping up food that's been thrown on the floor.   A typical vacation day, really.  Hope your weekend has been fantastic so far.  See you on Monday!


  1. absolutely loving the blue colour, is that the lining or the fabric?

  2. Glad you are enjoying the break! I am eagerly anticipating also... *sigh*

  3. That jacket is gorgeous! Sounds like you're having a nice weekend.

  4. The jacket looks wonderful! Sounds like a lot of cutting indeed. Can't wait to see that final coat of paint. :)
