At the pattern that is!
Last year, during the Zakka Style Sew Along, I found the book's instructions to be a bit light on diagrams and clear explanations. So today when I started my first project for the Zakka 2.0 SAL I was expecting a little angst.
I honestly thought Ayumi's instructions would be clear but by Step 4 I was scratching my head and messaging Alyce frantically (she made the project last week and is more conceptually aware than I). Thankfully she checked my work and corrected my mistake.
Maybe it was my lack of committment. I really wanted to spend the day outside in the sunshine sewing rye grass but I need to get some projects done before the end of the month. A two week school holiday break begins at the end of this week and we have house guests for most of the time.
Whilst sewing I did get to start watching a great new Australian drama on the ABC called 'The Time of Our Lives'. It stars Claudia Karvan, Justine Clarke (I can so relate to her character), Shane Jacobsen and Stephen Curry. It made up for the lack of 'Silent Witness' after the 2013 season finished with a shock.
