Up…I’m making good progress on trimming the purple tail bodice, and only have to do a bit more round the neckline [but I keep changing my mind on the actual arrangement…]
Down…It is [of course] taking longer than I’d hoped
Up…The combination of trims is, to my mind, working really well, as all the colours in the fabric embroidery are being picked up nicely [isn’t it weird how some colours are very difficult to photograph accurately?]
Down…My fingers are sore!
Up…This WILL be done tomorrow, and I know exactly what I want to do for the final SWAP item, using my antique Singer’s ruffler
Down…Turns out the ruddy ruffler doesn’t fit the machine, and in fact, almost ALL of that fabulous drawerful of attachments don’t either…
Up…I contacted the wonderful Helen Howes, who helped sort out my buttonholer, and she is willing to swap my collection for some goodies that will fit [including a ruffler] yay!
Down…I’ll have to wait for them to arrive if I want to stick with my plan of making a ruffled skirt…
And of course
Down…Tomorrow is the last day of my Easter break. poop.
