What I am working on Today

I am vigilantly working on my UFO list.  Today's post is just that, two tops that have been in the closet for quite a while.

This is a twin set that I started last year at a retreat and this is one of the MANY projects I started there.  I really want to get this done to wear Saturday.  Dr. P and I will be celebrating our 28th wedding anniversary and I want to wear it to dinner.  I can't believe that it has been 28 years - I only feel like I am 28 years old so how can I be married that long?  Where does the time go?

Anyway - The fabric of this twin set came from Emma One Sock.  Her fabrics are so great.  The fiber content is a blend of wool and cashmere.  Again, like butter!

These pictures do not do the colour justice! It is such a stunning shade of brown and orange.

Close up of the tank.  I cut out motifs from left over fabric and hand applied them to the neckline using four strands of top stitch thread .  As the fabric is a knit it will not ravel so it was perfect for this type of treatment.

Again, this pic does not show it too well, but the thin trim around the jacket is a leather cord that I zig zaged on with jeans thread.  I am considering taking the beads off the jacket and applying appliques then beading them.  Now you know why it takes me so long to finish anything!  I remake it at least two times before I can finish it!

Happy Sewing,
Michele P
