TWiP: Winding the Bobbin

This Week in Pictures, Week 24, 2019

Every summer, it seems, I get the urge to drag out the sewing machine and make myself a couple of tops or dresses. This year the Barefoot Summer Sheath Dress is back. At some point in the next few days, I would like to set up a back yard photo shoot and show you properly what I’ve been working on. But for now, this will have to do!

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the microblogging I’ve done on Flickr and Instagram all week. This includes photos I shot for Project 365 and any other extra images I may have posted.

Photos taken with 📷 (Canon EOS 80D) or 📱 (Samsung Galaxy S7).

Ready? Cast your mind back to this time last week…

I spent a lot of time on one computer or another today, so now I’m unwinding and going analog for a while.

My oldest nephew lives 800 miles away, but he’s visiting this week. It was our first opportunity to get a picture of all five of my parents’ grandchildren together. There’s a 15-year age gap between the youngest boy and the only girl, so it’s basically four men and a baby ☺

Our baby birds are all grown up. Just a few minutes after I took this photo, this one took flight.

After a rough few minues where I couldn’t remember how to wind the bobbin, I finally got started sewing a summer dress for myself.

Another rainy day at the office.

I sewed a dress last night. And then I thought about it all day, and I decided I need to rip out the neck, arms, and shoulders, if I truly want to be happy wearing it. So, tonight I’m ripping out a bunch of seams and trying again.

So, this is the dress I sewed this week. There was some ripping out, rethinking, and resewing, but I am happy with the end result. And I have this dingy, dirty-mirror bathroom selfie to prove it.
