On Sunday, I got stuck into my next sewing project: a red 1970's pattern suspender skirt. I don't really have much more to do, but it will probably be Friday before I get to it.
I also restitched the seams of my blue raincoat above the waist and it is a much better fit now. But it's the sort of garment that benefits from long periods of dedicated sewing, so I have set it aside until The Girl has come and gone again. There are going to be too many entirely necessary and welcome interruptions over the next week or so.
As you can see, I just have the yoke, pockets and front edging to complete. The yoke has stitchy business on both the knit and the purl rows so isn't as speedy to work as I expected... but there is no rush! I am really liking the Rowan All Seasons Cotton.
In life news, I am managing to reduce the amount of time I fritter away in blogland by the simple trick of not switching on the router every evening! At work, I am drinking water instead of tea... which means I am not tempted to plunder the office biscuit tin. I have been cooking more veg-y meals and FL has not complained for at least three days! There's still not much sign of exercise though... unless painting the walls counts? So that's my goal for the coming weekend: do something active!
