What’s a girl to do on Saturday when there hasn’t been a roll of the dice early in the week to let me know what UFO to work on? I had finished stitching the binding on my new quilt, added the label, took some photos and wrote a blog about it. What can I do now, without upsetting my “roll the dice” campaign, which incidentally, always (or like this particular week, sometimes) happens on Monday morning?
I know, I’ll work on that summer skirt I’ve been meaning to make for sometime. It’s been cut out and put away for ages. The pretty autumn hued leafy fabric was purchased on our trip to Australia from the Aboriginal Fabric Gallery in Alice Springs, and I purchased enough to make a skirt. I suspect that they are gum leaves, but I’m happy to be corrected. Read about my visit to this lovely quilt shop here.
Cotton quilting fabric for my new skirt
The pattern used was nothing too fancy, just a simple summer skirt with an elastic waist band. It didn’t take too long at all to stitch up, and will be nice and cool to wear now that the weather has changed yet again. We have gone from the torrential showers of yesterday, to hot, muggy and sticky temperatures today – rather like Aussie, actually. No two days seem to be the same lately.
My new summer skirt
With that extra bit of sewing accomplished, I’m looking forward to rolling the dice again on Monday morning. Wonder which UFO I’ll get to work on? I’ll just have to wait and see what number comes up.
