What did we do? Well, as usual, Mr Golightly toiled mightily in the vineyard, winding up wire, splitting wood and help Az build some raised vegie beds, and I worked on Kaz's dressing gown, getting it 98% done, with the only bit remaining the really fiddly bit, which is to put the piping on the sleeves. Being the fussy creature that I am, I want to use a method which will allow me to have only one visible seam, but I want the outside fabric to show on the inside of the sleeves too - I believe Vogue Sewing has the answers, so I'll be checking that out today, especially as it appears Autumn has hit with vengeance, and it's going to be cold and rainy all day... perfect for sewing!
For the first time in ages I didn't take any photos with my actual camera, only one rather nice piccie of Mr G with the pooch, her in her favourite spot, ie, right on top of Mr G, with her ears up, waiting for him to move so she can lick him into immobility... she's such a softie... although when the people on bicycles rode down the driveway & sat down to have their picnic, she set up such a barking & carrying on that it dawned on them that the land wasn't actually a park, despite the close resemblance, and scurried back up the driveway, with a "sorry" floating back our way. Didn't do much to stop the dog from barking, but it did give us all a bit of a chuckle...
I have ordered some fabric, to make Az a footstool - I took my project up for show & tell, and he was so impressed he wants one. Now all I have to do is find time to squeeze it in - I'm sure I'll manage! This is what Kaz & I found trawling through upholstery fabric on Etsy:
and this one, which is also fantastic:
which I am just waiting for the owner to make me a custom listing so I can buy it & then Madam Kaz can choose her favourite. I think they would both be amazing, but we shall see.
And now, given that I've been awake since 0430, I think I'm going to crawl back into bed and thank the Guvnmnt for my extra day off. Enjoy it, Gentle Readers, I'm going to!
