I needed a moment there to catch my breath. Infection, pain, a cold and just plain tiredness hit me at once.
Thankfully, Chris’ mum and dad have been here this week and I’ve been given respite and TLC and even a couple of sleep ins 🙂 So I’m feeling a lot better.
Before all that, I did sew up another skirt. I like the pin tucks even if the skirt hangs like a sack. Maybe it wasn’t the best choice of fabric and maybe I’ll recycle it into a handbag if the mood strikes.
While recovering, I read Womens Work: the first 20,000 years by Elizabeth Wayland Barker. An entertaining book about the history of textiles used as a tool to understanding the lives of women in ancient europe. Highly recommended!
