One of the towns close to my home was host to one of the olympic events, and two former work colleagues had purchased tickets for the event, so they came to stay with us for the weekend, which meant they could get to and from the event more easily.
Although I have technically been on vacation this week, between Wednesday and today, I have still been nursing my cold, and cleaning the house, mowing the lawn in preparation for our visitors and even been called upon to deal with some work related issues and not done anywhere as much sewing as I wanted to.
As for sewing accomplishments, Friday morning I did manage to run up another cowl neck top from some fabric in my stash and this was just an hour and a half project from start to finish. The top was made entirely on my Babylock and I managed, once again, to successfully change its function from serger to cover stitch with no problems. Despite the fact that converting it from one function to the other was purely down to "operator error" it was like my sewing nemesis, and it was really bugging me. I hope my new-found technical breakthrough will allow me to continue to use the cover stitch function, trouble free henceforth because now I have worked out the threading, I love it.
I really like these tops, and if you can get your hands on a pattern I would urge you to make one. They are slightly smarter than a tee, but still look great for a casual look. I will also look to wear these under my suits for work.
