Awkward bathroom selfie, checking the fit of the Persephone pants, first muslin (because everybody else has sewn it). And now I think I need some white jeans for my next pair.  I’m going to lower the waist slightly, but otherwise it looks good.

Making cocoa power balls for my evening chocolate craving. I have added plenty of seeds for extra crunch and may have been a bit heavy handed on red pepper 😉
Recipe from @gracevanberkum

Sewing, hammering- same thing, isn’t it ?

On the blog: 4 projects on my needles 😵. Also, noticed that 2 of my project bags are from @marinamartendal, knitting friends rock, the other one is from @fringesupplyco, enamel pins from @renecreates and other sources.

#sewologybom block 11, pincushion, is done ✅. Same comment as previous blocks, it’s huge. One more block and the @penandpaperpatterns Sewology quilt will be finished.

Does my butt look pink in these? Made a pair of workout leggings with some compression fabric from @lafinchfabrics. The fit is not perfect but they are high waisted which is always a bonus.

Almost finished!  My FBA worked (will put details on the blog soon). I just need to finish the armholes, hem it and maybe tweak the V line. Also I want to make a hot pink belt to go with it.

My view this morning: jumpsuit in the making, paper piecing feather from a workshop with @nohatsquilts, some experimental clamshells combination of two classes with @bettycrockerass and @messygoat and my Improv block from the Yellow bee, and also a test block for the BOM I did for the @orlandomqg. It is safe to say that I propose wouldn’t be quilting as much if it wasn’t for my guild and all the friends i made there.

Slashing and spreading this thing. My full bust measurements put me on a size 22, but my high bust on 18. Initially I thought I could get away without a FBA (picture 1). But second picture shows that the waist was going up. So here what the front looks like now (last picture). Next confirm that it all works on the muslin.

Task of the day: figuring out how to make a FBA on this wrap top. Any idea how to do this ?
