Oh my, Bev, I have learned so much from you!

Morzel and Turquoise, thank you for your kind words.  It's taken me a long long time to get the fit right on this pattern, but I am glad that I kept going with it as it is such a basic design.  Turquoise, I hope your husband's surgery went well.

I am starting the last piece of the auburn wool crepe.  I didn't have enough left over for the top I envisioned, but I am hoping I came up with something that will still work.

The folks I made this section for -the vendors who posted here before we switched to the subscription model- are not using it.  So, I'm going to remove this next time I update stuff.

As always, I'm open to comments or suggestions, so if you believe it should stay for some reason, let me know.

Oh no, Turquoise! Good luck to your husband.  Hopefully the healing will go fast.  I spent a lot of time reading Stitchers Guild while sitting in the hospital.

Take care and best to you both.

Thanks again for the lovely comments everyone  :), they’re really cheering me up when I feel a bit frazzled.  DH fell off of a ladder last week and we spent 12 hours in A&E.  Thankfully he is OK apart from his arm and he has surgery booked for that tomorrow.  It’s his dominant arm, so it’s hard going for him. 

I don’t think I’ll have much time for sewing in the next few weeks but I’ve been looking at what everyone’s been up to and it’s great to see  :)

I LOVE CCL’s dress, the fit is so good.

The thread on what we wear really got me thinking too and I am going to reflect on which garments from SWAP and my Summer sewing have had the most wear to try and make better choices for future sewing. Good opportunity for reflection.

Wow CCL your dress looks fabulous!  It’s so good when all the fit is sorted isn’t it. The SWAP is really starting to come together  :applause2:

So good to hear that BH is doing so much better too :)

Ccl Thank you for the lovely compliment.
