I am joining in with Thursday's My Creative Space at Kootoyoo.
Clockwise from left:
- Dress toile in white calico
- Cut fashion fabric
- Report writing aids
- Kindergarten forms
- Rotary cutter with skip blade
I am finally making progress with the period costume. Earlier this week I finished a second toile of the Folkwear Empire Gown and to my great surprise it fit the wearer. In hindsight my incredulous look probably did not fill her with a great deal of confidence in my abilities as a dressmaker. Note to self: poker face important when doing dress fittings.
I have finally been able to cut out the fashion fabric and will begin sewing the dress as soon as possible. But in a surprise twist, I have discovered that the wearer is now on holiday until about 12 hours before the gown is needed. Hear that sound in the distance? That's my heart sinking as I realise there is no chance for a final fitting. Now I really do have cross all my fingers and toes that everything turns out OK.
In the meantime, I am busily finishing all my kindergarten treasurorial responsibilities for the year. There are the books to be finalised; a report to be written for the AGM; fees to be chased for next year and a second-hand uniform sale to be organised.
And who says paperwork can't be creative? I had lots of fun making up the notice for the uniform sale - my skip-bladed rotary cutter was perfect for creating perforations for a tear off form.
Yep ... sad, but true. At least I am not getting creative with the accounting.
