Have you noticed I've shown sewing related things for the last few weeks but no actual sewing I've done? I lost my sewing mojo for awhile. I think it started with two muslins of vintage patterns that were terrible --the patterns would need more altering than I felt like at the time. Then I put an invisible zipper in a skirt...backwards. I picked it out, set it aside, and went to work in the garden.
This happens occasionally. I use the time to organize my sewing stuff, clean and oil the machines, and clean the house. But even a lapse in sewing doesn't mean I'm not doing any. A couple of weeks ago son #2 wanted the couch blanket because the morning was chilly, and I noticed with all the quilts I've made and given away - we keep a natty fleece blanket that was given to us on the couch. Time to fix that at least.
A few garden shots for you? Purple iris with a grapevine trying to grow in the middle of them:
