I have had a very productive sewing weekend. I have finally finished a pair of pants I have been sewing for about 5 years, I have replaced the zips in two other pair of pants and I have sew an shawl/scarf type thing!
The pants perhaps didn't go quite as well as I was hoping, but then I did skips heaps of the instructions. They look OK. The zip replacing was a challenge, and now I have the pants back to where, the most exciting part of that is that they still fit me!
My scarf/shawl, again not following the instructions quite correctly, has also turned out very successfully, I picked blues for mine and I am amazed at how warm it actually is, even though it is completely see thought.
