|Briar Rose almost complete!|
My Briar Rose has been sitting and waiting for me to finish it. What's left? Sewing on the pocket and the buttons. I need to hone my planning skills when it comes to knitting. So this poor sweater was basically done and I realized that I hadn't picked out the buttons yet. Yes, everything has been knitted and all I need are buttons - yet here it sits unfinished.
Then while I was at my knitting group last Tuesday night, I saw some very cute and whimsical buttons that would be perfect for my sweater. But there was only one left. Lucky for me, the shop owner is a doll and placed a special order to get in some more for me. They aren't in yet, but very soon, and then I will have some more pictures to post for you.
In the meantime, I have been working on a little sewing. My goal is to always be improving my skills. So this project called for a little bit of drafting as well as some seam finishes. Not only will I be using french seams, but I will be surging the edges . . . well sort of. I don't have a serger, but I have a stitch on my sewing machine that closely matches what a serger does. Since my fabric is so light weight, I am afraid that it will unravel. This is the reason for serging and french seams.
This is just a taste of my projects in the works, I will be working hard to get these done soon.
Live the moment, love life!
