I've been going through my stash for fabrics. JoAnns is way over by the mall, and I haven't had the time alone to spend looking online for fabrics, but I do have a fabric stash. I pulled this linen out and played around with the yardage for quite awhile. From skirts, to dresses, to shorts, to some sort of a jacket, but I just wasn't happy. The linen seemed to stretch a bit when hung on a dress dummy, the weave felt a bit coarse..
I'm taking a brief (hopefully) break from sewing. The ironing board I brought down from the attic is broken. A plastic piece that holds the ironing board up is broken. Since I had to recently buy a new refrigerator, I've decided to sand the rusty part of the old one and repaint it with a metal paint. My husband is trying to get the fence protected, but we are having a heat wave and the painting is going slowly. He's got the rusty part sanded, but I wanted to use a much stronger white paint (he had green, black and white in the garage) and he needs a paint filter to breathe through for that paint. I plan to paint the whole thing all the way white at a later date.
