Hey, how's your day going? Good I hope.

Here's what my life looks like at the moment...
A basket of kittehs.
A drawing of leaves

The Curvy Closet Sewing Club is back up and running. I finally had some time yesterday to do some sewing. Here's Vogue V1197, a cowl neck tunic. It was pretty simple to put together. The pattern had long shirred raglan sleeves but they were too fiddly for me so I cut them off at the elbow.  I also cut a kimono jacket out last night out of scrapes of fabric.

The fish seem happy enough.
Hugs and kisses to you!

I love that cowlneck top! Both the color and the style look great on you!

I found a pattern company I think you might enjoy looking at: www.petitepluspatterns.com.

I've been doing some reading up on how to alter sewing patterns this winter and their website has a few articles on how to do some super simple stuff.
One of the local parks is reopening its ceramic lab so I'm thinking I join it just so I'll have a place to do pottery again.
Other than that, I'm mostly just waiting for it to warm up enough for me to start gardening again...
