I'm away at school right now, and have more work than I anticipated. Consequently, my sewing time has dropped off sharply. I was able to get this little number out of the way recently, though. I used the navy/black/silver silk suiting I mentioned before, and just measured out pleats according to a kilt plan in a vintage sewing book. It came out rather nicely, I think.
I'm currently working on (if I can find the time!) place mats and Christmas things. I've found some inspirational links so far, which have convinced me that it's never too early to think about Christmas!
First are these lovely little things. I want to make bunting, and an advent calendar out of them.
Next up are these ornaments. They're charming, and would be nice in felt, I think.
I've also been looking through old magazines for inspiration, and can't wait until the weekend, when I get to go home for a visit! I'll look through crafty books, make cake with my sister, and see my family. I have to admit that I'm a little homesick these days.
