This past week has been consumed with Christmas in July stitching. That's all done and the post is ready to go live on the 26th so on to new sewing.
I taught my first workshop this past weekend, and we had a lovely time. I stitched along with the workshop participants so I could demonstrate each step. I finished this quilt top, thereby increasing my WIP list (oopsie!):
It's going to be another charity quilt and it is going to be quick to finish, so I'm not too concerned. Plus, it was fun!
So as I said on Facebook, "I fought my serger and I WON!" The threading was giving me some grief, but I persevered and stitched up this cute skirt for G out of some jersey I had laying around.
Lettuce edge fanciness:
I googled "circle skirt" and went from there - you basically cut a donut whose inner circle is your kid's waist size and add a waistband made of a rectangle stitched along the short ends then folded in half. I used the serger for everything. Easy peasy (once the serger behaved, that is).
Not much else to report, but I am pleased with my progress given that the sun is here, and the livin' is easy(ish). I say "ish" because keeping a 4½-year old entertained is surprisingly difficult. Or maybe it's just *my* 4½-year old. Same diff.
