It's been really inspiring to see all your completed projects in June.
I haven't managed to finish a single stash-busting garment - not for the want of trying but because my sewing machine is in a bad way, I think it might be the end :(
I'm currently looking at buying a new machine, the choice is mind-blowing, and I'm not good at shopping so am actually finding it quite stressful, worrying about making the wrong choice. I tested 2 yesterday, I'm back at the shop next Saturday to try another couple of machines. Hopefully this time next week I'll actually be able to do some sewing. If you've got any recommendations I'd be glad to have them.
In the meantime I've been matching patterns with fabrics, it makes me feel like I'm joining in just a little bit, on the periphery. At least I should be good to go once I have a working machine.
Anyway, I have an almost finished garment - it is waiting for 7 buttonholes (and the corresponding buttons) and it will be done. (I finished a refashioning project by hand, I'm not going to attempt to do that with the buttonholes!)
It's a second version of Tilly's Picnic Blanket Skirt - I've wanted a black & white version (with bigger squares) ever since I made my first one. I wear this a lot, I love gingham, so I'm hopeful this will be in frequent rotation - just need to get it finished before the end of what is apparently our summer in the UK!
I had just about 1.4 metres of fabric, that was all that was left on the bolt when I bought it. This one is not as long as the last one, due to lack of fabric, it's a good job I'm short! I didn't even have enough fabric to make the pockets and decided to do without.
Does this scrape into June stash-busting even though I can't finish it? I'm afraid it's a tiny contribution to the stash-busting total - I hope to make a bigger contribution in July :)
