Let me explain… This past week our household was hit with the worst “COLD” in its history. It started with our Daughter, then Me, then Mr. Green Thumb. It hasn’t hit our Son yet, but Heaven help us if he gets it as he is in the middle of a University term and can’t afford to be ill.
Those of us who have been through it or haven’t had it yet are extremely wary of being near anyone (Mr. Green Thumb) who has it. So much so that the Poor Man came out of the “sick room” for an Advil once and we chased him back in there with fiery torches and pitchforks! Stay away! Get back! Poor Man. It was even suggested that we just throw all the cold medication, chicken soup, and hot tea in there and shut the door quick!
So that, Teacher, is why I don’t have my homework done!
In order to make all four pants different in some way I took inspiration from my Craftsy course, “One Pattern, Many Looks: Pants” with Kathy Ruddy. This time I used the chapter on pockets and chose to insert Slash Pockets in my pants. The fabric I used is called Blue Horizon Suiting, 100% polyester, but no stretch. I love the feel of it and the colour. I wish I had bought more! (Click on a photo to start the slide show.)
That’s all Folks!
I got the princess seams in the fronts and the backs sewn and half of one Slash Pocket done before I got ill. I completed the Slash Pockets after I felt better. It’s a sad day when you don’t feel like sewing! 😟
In preparation for next time – hopefully there won’t be a next time – do you have any home cold remedies to share, to get us sewists back behind our sewing machines quickly? 😄
Happy Sewing and Good Health to you all!
