I have a little progress to report on Perrin's Starling ... and a little is better than nothing. Baby steps, baby steps.
Two weeks ago I picked out the tear-away stabilizer from the label. If you've ever done this, you know it's more work than it seems. :)
Last night I pulled out the ironing board, the cutting mat, and set up my sewing machine. I was going to stay up a little later than I should have and finish sewing the lining. I was thwarted by a lack of coordinating thread. I could hardly believe it: no white, no cream, no blues or greens that match the fabric.
It might be a couple of weeks before I can trek over to a fabric store, but when I do, I'm buying a rainbow's worth of spools.
I had to put everything away, so I pinned the lining and the cut-out pocket to the ironing board before I slipped it back into the closet so it will stay nice and flat.
