Morning, everyone. Just to be different, the forecast for today is strong wind and rain. Yippidy doo! In fact, from what I can see, it already is and I'm so glad I got the things for breakfast out of the freezer (kept in the shed) last night!
Well, Dr Clough was very happy with the way things are healing up, thankfully. He wants to see me in eight weeks, just for another check. I think, maybe, that's when he will judge the rate of healing and decide when the implants can be put in. Let's hope so anyway.
I took the paper pattern sheets out and got them all cut out and ironed nice and flat but I think I might grab some cheap fabric from the deep, dark depths of a cupboard and knock one up first, just to see. It's a very, very long time since I did any dress making and I don't want to waste the lovely (comparatively expensive) fabric.
It's a very easy pattern. No facings, Diane, just binding to finish the neck and sides and hems for the bottom and the sleeves. As it is kimono style, there's no sleeves to set in either, so it's actually a very good pattern to start with. It would be quite easy to make some narrow facings if the binding looks a bit clunky so a practise run would be a good thing from more than one angle.
Today looks very much like being an indoors day again so I'll dig out that fabric and make a start, I think. Here's hoping it all works OK. I'm surprised how nervous I feel about it. Time was when I'd knock up a couple of skirts and a little pair of shorts for Dave and still have time for afternoon coffee with my friend! It's more than time I got back into the swing of it.
Have a good day, everyone, and stay safe, warm and dry in this nasty weather, especially if you live further north where, I gather, there's weather warnings in place for ice and snow.
