Creative Camp Day 4


After the stormy weather on Friday, daylight on Saturday revealed the beach had been cut in half by the stream. See the missing sand? And also we saw the full view across to Maria Island for the first time not obscured by rain or clouds.

Two of four of the baby rugs are finished for the niece/nephew-to-be. Rather than a formal quilting approach, I fairly randomly stitched over one stripey rug. The red dotty rug used a couple of arbitrary rules – only changing direction on a dot, and only crossing an existing stitching line where a dot also lay. The other two are now awaiting attention at home.

These two items, a pair of leggings, and a merino green Renfrew were part of getting to know my new coverstitch machine (post to come). Because I’d piled up four garments that needed coverstitching, on Saturday I quickly ‘finished’ four items…

… of which the black cardigan was the third…

… and the twirly green Vogue 8663 dress was the fourth.

This project one didn’t get finished either. Here I am trying out the ruffle for a grey work skirt by pinning it to my Lola dress which has a handy princess seam line to follow. It only needs the hem to be handstitched.

Me-Made-May Day 26 Report – all of the above clothes for photos, with the blue/cream stripey Lola dress for most of the day.

We set the alarms for early Sunday morning to get some more done before we had to pack up and head home.
