I am joining in with Thursday's My Creative Space at Kootoyoo.
This week's creative space is feeling distinctly un-creative just now. In the background there, you can see lots of cut pieces for a trial-run of my first shirt, McCalls M5522, View D. And I know its about to cause me grief; lots of it.
You see I've reached a point in my sewing where my ability to alter patterns is lagging behind my ability to construct garments. I would love to make lots of shirts, jackets and trousers, but sadly there is little point unless they fit nicely. And for someone of the full-busted-sway-backed-protruding-tummy-you-really-need-to-stop-slouching-like-that persuasion, there's a lot of altering to be done.
So I am sitting at the cutting board this week, contemplating the hard yards ahead. (Its not a good place to be, if your secret favourite quote is work fascinates me; I could watch it for hours.)
Thank you very much Kirsty for hosting My Creative Space. Its great fun seeing what everyone is doing. To see who else is showing their creative space today (or to join in), head over here.
