It's time to lift the hay so Ian will spend the week farming and helping his Uncle David. No doubt my holiday will consist of cooking and feeding the men..... I'll be taking Betty with me! I'm hoping to get some sightseeing done as I haven't spent much time in this area of Ireland, and perhaps some horse riding, but I haven't been for years so not 100% convinced I should go out on my own...
Anyhoo, Betty will be coming with me, along with some calico, a large spool of black thread and the following patterns. Now I really am not expecting/hoping to get much sewing done, but could do to get the jacket made up as I have a Speed Tailoring class when I get back and hope to take the opportunity to have my toile "tweeked" by a professional.
Here's what I'm taking with me:
|McCalls classic Jeans|
Ha, I live in hope!!
|New Look 6617 I will make View B or C|
This is the jacket I need for class
|Simplicity 3690 |
A simple pair of trousers before I try the Jeans!
I will be keeping MMJ up as best I can whilst away too.
