Things have been much slower on this blog than I would like because of PC trouble. It looks like my laptop has a failing hard drive. I think things will be fixed soon, and Steven is kindly sharing his laptop in the meantime.
How cute is this chubby dove? I set out a terracotta dish of seed and next time I looked out the window this fluffy bird was using it as a roost.
I recently sourced some lovely purple paisley silk from a large thrift-store dress. I've been wanting to make a mod mod mini skirt for some time with Simplicity 7218, but I started to doubt that silk would be suitable for this pattern. I've set the project aside for now, but do any sewers want to chime in with advice? Could I use a light silk or would it be better to stick with a more durable material?
Anyway, I hope you have a lovely week!
