sunburst and mina

I am glad I made the decision to redo the skirt front for the Sunburst dress 🙂 I now have the design transfered to paper so I can neaten it and transfer it properly. I can now machine sew the rays and hand sew the clouds from the front.

The mina leaves are going well 🙂 I may be able to machine some of the work- it’ll be neater and faster but for other parts of the process I’ll have to hand sew. It means busting out my Husquy as that can go really slow and the reverse is fully functional… I need to get inside the Janome again to work out what I did to the feed dog thingy.

I need to make more of the smallest leaves, the very narrowest are perfect for the neckline but I only have a few of them.

Still can’t believe what a score I got in my silk 🙂 $NZ10/m sigh. And being 150cm wide I have a fair amount to play with.

meanwhile I have a grumpy cat sitting on the table and he is demanding attention.

no hedgehog tonight 🙁 The bunny was over yesterday too 🙂 I’m hoping the neighbours didn’t move after all. They were nice and quiet and hey.. have a bunny that roams free and safely in a street full of cats! Seriously there are two next door and three on the other side and another three on their other side…

And one final note to myself; don’t leave mugs of tea on the window pane. They are high and I can’t see inside and when that really funky smell starts up it’s hard to figure out where it comes from.

Mug is now outside hoping for some rain. Or a water blaster.
