Day 13 Blogtoberfest

Did a bit of sewing today in between naps (I'm sick, remember?). This is my attempt at a Lazy Day skirt for today- the doilies were meticulously attached, only for the machine to go spazzo when I was doing the casing! Big skipped stitches- I tried every remedy the book said, I think my machine didn't like my design :(

So I put it down and finished off my Anna mini-dress. (in this Amy Butler fabric range).

I have made this as a tunic, but the flower wasn't made- this time it will not beat me!!
My favourite part is the back of the yoke, where four little buttons will soon go (once my butt hits the couch). So cute! (buttons, not my butt).
Hmm, now where to wear it?

I'm amazed how much sewing you get done when you're sick - you'd better recover quickly before Saturday!

I'm with CurlyPops. You're a sewing machine. The red and white on the blue looking sensational.

I hope you're on the mend.

Wow - someone else who's attached doilies to their Lazy Days skirt (I've done it too - pics on my blog). Looks great on the blue too.

Love the Amy Butler tunic dress as well.

Get well soon.

Oh pooh - skipped stitches? Chuck the bobbin ... they are always the evil offenders.

Love, love, love those doilies on the skirt and your tunic is gorgeous. So much sewing. Do I dare say you should be sick more?! Nahhhh .... get well soon!

That tunic is looking fabo! Maybe you're in your element when you're sick, or just determined as hell?
