I am giving the Ellen pants another shot. I've enlarged where needs enlarging :p and I've added a pocket too. It's a cotton drill fabric and quite nice to work with. I am using a different fabric for the pockets and the fly shield. I've joined a 1 year membership to Angela Kane's patterns. And looking forward to her shirt and skirt videos.
The Ute blouse is completed. Very happy with it despite the mishap which is rectified with a silly label!
Some cross stitch on the stand. It's been about a month since I've cross stitched. Enjoying this small stitch immensely.
