Carole is on vacation this week, so yesterday afternoon I began to toss ideas around for an alternative post. I was not having much success, so when feedly told me this morning that there indeed was a Three on Thursday post, I breathed a huge sigh of relief! LOL
Thank you, Carole for salvaging a blog post!
My things today all involve making – or making inspiration!
I do not follow many hash tags on IG, but the most recent hash tag find has been providing amazing inspiration: #sewover50 is my favorite new rabbit hole to slip down! (However, it is easy to lose all track of time, so I am limiting my “look time” to the end of the day!)
You will all be happy to know that the second Screen Door was cast on yesterday! I picked an incredibly lovely skein of Handmaiden Sea Silk that has been maturing in my stash for a very long time! I went up a needle size and will only do the prescribed repeats! I almost got 10 repeats done yesterday (thanks in much to debate knitting last night!) Anyways – I was pleasantly surprised to find that this yarn matches some fabric I recently purchases for a new Esme Tunic!
Finally, I have been seeing the Zadie Jumpsuit all over IG! Everyone looks amazing in this cute jumpsuit and it seems to work for all shapes, sizes, ages, etc. So, I am hoping that I will find something on super sale to make a muslin this weekend!
There you have the things that are inspiring my making this week! What is inspiring you in your corner of the world?
Oh gosh – gorgeous yarn for your 2nd Screen Door! The Zadie jumpsuit is intriguing…but I keep reminding myself that I always hated jumpsuits (and I had a number of them) – just a real PITA when you “have to go.” Finally, I do NOT need to look at that rabbit hole of an IG account – lol. There are some really lovely pieces there.
I love Sea Silk, and also love the idea of a Screen Door knit with it. I don’t have any in my stash, so darn it, I may have to buy some yarn. Yours is going to be really lovely!
That jumpsuit is adorable! I haven’t much been tempted by the jumpsuit trend thus far, but I love the look of that one. Darn you sewing people and your tempting clothing!
I’ll have to forget that hashtag you mentioned. You’re right, it’s a rabbithole 😉
And that’s a lovely jumpsuit! I’m tempted…
I’ve been following #sewover50 for quite a long time . . . and it is ALWAYS a rabbit hole. (But if you’re going to fall down a rabbit hole, it’s better if it’s a high-quality and inspirational rabbit hole, right???) I’ve been tempted by that Zadie jumpsuit, too. And it really does look great on EVERYONE. But. I just need to remember all the jumpsuits I’ve had over the years (and. . . there have been several) . . . and how much I hate them when it comes to needing to go to the bathroom . . . and how often I pee . . . and . . . just no. 😉
I love that jumpsuit! I’m hoping to actually get serious with sewing.
The wrap feature of Zadie is pretty genius (so flattering to everyone), though I’ll remain an admirer of jumpsuits rather than a wearer…
