Catching Up

It's been a nice long (4-day) weekend, and I did some sewing!

I had the flu last month, and didn't sew for about 3 weeks, so it was nice when the mojo returned.

I had 2 yards of a hole-y denim fabric, which you can see on Marcy Tilton's site. This denim is wonderfully soft and the holes give it an even nicer drape.

I decided to squeeze a tablecloth skirt out of it. As you can see in the previous photo, one edge of the selvedge includes several inches of plain denim, which I used for the waistband. It would also be perfect for the front band of a shirt or a pocket edge.

Shoes: Fly London
Top: Uniqlo supima tee w/ 3/4 length sleeves, shortened about 7"
Scarf: purchased at a local boutique
Wooden bracelets: made by Tad Nishimura (Heather's husband)

We had some lovely weather early this spring, but a cold June, so I did some knitting!

Top: Tessuti Silva Shirt Jacket

This is the Challah Infinity Scarf, which you can see on Ravelry. I used Malabrigo Merino Worsted in rich autumn colors. You can wear it doubled...

or single...

I actually finished a couple other garments this weekend, but don't have photos yet. I abandoned a third garment and, at some point, need to go back and revisit to see if I can save it.

All in all, a good weekend!

Also, for those of you who are familiar with Thai Silks in Los Altos, the brick and mortar closed at the end of June. Their online stores, Thai Silks (retail) and Exotic Silks (wholesale), are still available, but it is sad to see another local brick-and-mortar bite the dust.

Have a great week!
