There's not much going on in the studio except work, but there are a lot of garden pics to share. I'm putting together a shirt. I found some inexpensive shirting to test my newly resized pattern on and it's coming out great...except the collar. The neck opening in the pattern is too large, so the collar stand had to have a couple inches added to it, which meant the collar was very small. I had to pick up an extra quarter yard of fabric this weekend to cut a new collar. I'll also cut some extra parts of the yoke and front to create a muslin and resize the pattern. While it's not the fun part of shirt making, it is the fun part of pattern altering.
The daylilies started to bloom this week. With the Iris in bloom, it's quite the show in the sunny part of the garden.
I also did this pot with a yellow broom and some sweet potato vines. This should be really pretty soon. The pot is red and about 2' tall, so this should make a striking specimen.
Sometimes the best birthday present is a childhood memory. We both remember soldiers like these.
Tonight, we're bouncing back to my birthday. Rob gave me tickets to see Patty Lupone tonight. We're both excited. I don't remember the last time we did anything that didn't start til 8pm. It should be a fun night and we've both taking tomorrow morning off to recover.
Everybody have a great week! Find something you love and make time to do it.
