|Lucienne Day design fabric|
I took some time out from the frantic de-cluttering/packing this week to go to a pinny making workshop. A friend was saying how she would like to have an old fashioned crossover pinny when we walked into the fabric shop a saw a pinny making workshop advertised. Well it was fate so we immediately signed up. I found this fabulous retro fabric which cost more than any sensible person would pay for a pinny, it just means that it will never be allowed anywhere near any type of cooking of course. I will just prance around in my pinny, glass of wine in hand pretending to be a 50's housewife. It is not quite finished of course........yet another unfinished project........but it will look nice hanging up in the kitchen even if I never finish it. I hope to get around to it before it is packed for the (fingers, toes, legs and eyes crossed) house move. I just need to finish the shoulders and top sew around the neck and armholes.
I am chuffed to bits that I actually made something I would wear, unlike my other dressmaking disasters. I'm even tempted to make one in linen to wear over a top and leggings. What do you think, would anyone notice it's a pinny?
In other news, things are moving slowly on the house front, it doesn't help that the buyers solicitor sent the paperwork to our old solicitors despite being informed that we had changed to another. Two weeks wasted! Oh well gives me more time to plough through 15 years of clutter in the attic.
