Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms! As with most occasions, I like to celebrate with cake – Linzer torte on this particular occasion.
I’ve been working on a cotton dress and yesterday had to rip one side of the zipper out about four times before it looked acceptable. It actually looked ok the first time I sewed it in but thought I could do better. No, I couldn’t. Took a while and a lot of seam ripping to get to that realization.
Here is the way the zipper looks with slight jog emphasized in red. It’s fine and won’t really bug me, especially when nestled among the print of the fabric.
I knit a bit more on my Color Affection scarf. It’s almost time to change colors but now I’m second guessing the black yarn I chose as my third color. If I don’t like the color interplay I may just rip this out and can then justify starting A Little Romance. I’ve been eying this pattern and would like to try it in the Quince Tern yarn. It sounds yummy. I’ve even kind of picked out a colorway (mist – light gray). Well I digress, first let’s see how I like the colors together in Color Affection.
The only other thing I’ve been working on is horrible allergies. I love spring, but the pollen really does me wrong. The good thing about going to work is that the airplane hepa filters take out all the pollen from the air so I can breathe. Of course I’m at work wearing polyester at that point, but baby steps here 🙂
Happy Mother’s day and/or have a good Sunday – whichever applies.
