Pattern Making Day

Today I worked on drafting a dress pattern! I got the bodice and sleeve done and need to do the skirt. Then it will be time to make a muslin and fit it! It is so draining to do this kind of work. My brain feels totally worn out!
I went outside this evening and watered everything then weeded. We have a few strawberry plants along the side of the house and the weeds were really taking over so I got all that taken care of. Some good physical work like that feels good after exercising my brain all day.
Just a shot I took of what my dress form looks like right now. She is needing some new decor I think! I stuck the ribbon spools on her right after I brought them home sort of just as a spot to put them. Haven't got back to her yet! Fall is fast approaching, it will soon be time to 'fluff' the house again.

Hi Jill.
I'll have to say you inspired me. I've been thinking of blogging for a little while now....coming across your blog convinced me I could try! Now I need advice on how to make the silly page look like I want it!
I love to see the pics of your life....since I don't see you very often!

Have a good eve!
