Sewing for me.

Super quick post as I am right in the middle of unpacking and re-packing right now. Travelled yesterday so Clary could have his full cast put on today. He is being very good with his arm, it does not seem to be bothering him much at all (it certainly has not slowed him down!!).
So, to help me deal with my grief over the fact that my children will no longer wear clothes which I have made them, I've decided to start making for myself.
I'm sticking with my Japanese sewing books and really loving them.
 As I am not a super seamstress in any way, I picked something very simple, this top here.
 I used a grey linen (I think it may have been a linen blend, actually), nice and simple.
 My workmanship is pretty poor but I seriously could not care less in this case. I love it. It is super comfortable, my new favourite top.

 My self portraits suck, but this is it, on.
 I think the kids were up to no good when I took this one.
I have plans for more 'me' sewing, as soon as I can.
