Thank you...

For all your kind words and wishes for my shoulder/arm problems. I'm definitely trying to spend less time at the computer screen for reading and writing about sewing. As I'm a computer programmer, not much chance to cut down computer use for work reasons. But as I'm my own "boss" I can try to divide my time better. Excersises, adapting screen height/chair etc. is all part of the mending process.

Just wanted to thank you and show you what I'm working on. It's a placket for a sleeve that goes down through the cuff. Saw that on a blouse from a business relation recently, and I just had to try to make it. As you can see, I'm still sewing (though also not in long time stretches).


That's all for now, perhaps I can show you the Knip dress next week (it's cut), but after that I'm going to spend two weeks without computer and travel to the beautiful south of England. That must be good for me!

  4. The sleeve placket looks really interesting and I am glad you are able to plan your time and still do the things you love.
    Have a great trip without your computer. I'm from the south of England though of course did not appreciate it at all when I was growing up there!

  5. I love that placket. Stripes and plaid are right up my alley because of the all the cool things you can do with them. That is very cool.

    I do hope you continue on in the healing process. Have a wonderful vacation!
