It was a lovely sunny morning followed by a good soaking rain. I continued my little holiday and finished Charlotte’s knickers. I’ll make the rest of her ensemble, but I did a little bit of sewing first. I completed the HotPatterns Layered Tank.


I had a terrible time with the facings. However, I think it will be a real wardrobe workhorse and I will make many more.

The facing needs pressing, too. This is a lovely lightweight rayon fabric from La Droguerie.

I might make it shorter next time. I will certainly wear something over it — layering tank, right? This is a size 8, and it makes me feel that my day was productive, even if I spent most of it watching Blood and Treasure.

Oh, I went to the bank and the grocery. I unpacked an Amazon Prime Pantry box and put it away. I cooked proper meals and cleaned up the kitchen. I talked with my daughters.

But mostly I relaxed in solitude. I’m heading to bed now with a novel to enjoy, also in solitude. One more day off and I should be completely refreshed.
