Sewing on the horizon!

Red and black print cotton from Fabric.com.

In the past months, I have been so busy with other things, sewing has had to take a place on the back burner. I haven't finished anything new since February. Yikes.

But not for much longer!

I have been inspired by some fabric and a painting by Tissot and, hopefully, as soon as the materials arrive in the mail, I will get to stitching.

La soeur ainée,  James Tissot

(P.s. I'm posting about this so hopefully I feel like I will have to finish it...)

I'm not usually a fan of red and black... I really surprised myself when I chose this to work on. Sometimes the uglier the fabric, the more I end up in love with it. I'm clueless as to why.

And in other news, today I got a chance to work on my riding bloomers. Yay! Hopefully I can finish them by the end of the week. Fingers crossed!



  1. Glad to see you up and running again. Love all your posts. great and inspiring way to start my day!
    I like that painting! Tissot?! I haven't heard of the artist before. Very nice.

    1. Look up some of his paintings. Gorgeous! And great attention to detail with the clothing in them.

  2. I actually like the fabric! I can't wait to see it come together, Tissot is wonderful for costumes.

    1. I kind of fell in love with it :)

      And Tissot paintings are so drool worthy!
