Not a knitted FO this week but a sewn one.
Trust me, those aren't words that I thought I would be typing anytime soon. I am a huge fan of the Great British Sewing Bee but I have always regarding sewing as very much a spectator sport. Memories of enforced sewing lessons at school, having to french seam a blouse and pressing pleats was enough to give me the shivers.
But a chance encounter on Twitter from Jacqui Harding aka Curvyjax pointed the way to this: a tutorial for sewing a skirt in 30 minutes.
I had to admit that I was intruiged and couldn't help popping in to my local yarn and haberdashery shop to browse fabric.
Of course, predictably I couldn't resist this cute mushroom print cotton fabric.
So I came home, dusted off the sewing machine and made a skirt.
Now that I have dug the ironing board out of the pantry I may even indulge in some more sewing - who knows?
