No sign of anything at all for many a year, then suddenly, bang! Two weddings in two months! You may recall I told you about attending my nephew’s wedding in Adelaide, South Australia last month. Well, another nephew is getting married in Sydney, New South Wales next Saturday 20 October. It’s also my 23rd wedding anniversary tomorrow 14 october. The pixies must have sprinkled wedding dust around here!
I’ve been feverishly getting my outfit together for the wedding so haven’t had much spare time for stitching. This is what I’ve managed to whip up… a simple outfit which I’m hoping will rise to the occassion when it all comes together with the help of a few (red?) accessories 0 haven’t decided on those yet!) The top is made from a gold embroidered silk fabric with lovely florals with tinges of red in the embriodered petals (see close up of fabric). The long skirt is made froma plain gold dupioni sik fabric. Well, this is what the outfit looks like…. Please excuse the poor photography – still on my ‘L’ plates for this type of photo shoot.
I’m just about to get started on my DD’s outfit. Yikes! time’s getting very tight. She coudn’t find anything she liked in the shops, so decided at the last minute that she wanted me to make her something. We rushed out and did a quick trip to Spotlight, our local fabric/craft superstore yesterday. I’ll show you what she’s designed in a couple of days when I have something that resembles an outfit.
Even though I enjoy sewing, my real love is cross stitch. Can’t wait to get back to it …. can’t remember what I was last stitching😕 Been too long already! Hope you all have the time to slip in a few stitches on your current projects!
