Truly I mean to be working on my sewing with a plan ( that is SWAP, to answer JB) see stitcher's guild
. However, I seem to be working on a lot of other things. I finished my younger daughter's socks.

These are made from a corn based yarn that I purchased over the internet. We thought it would be cool stripes, but instead it turned out a sort of camo pattern. She still likes them. I used knit in elastic for the cuffs to help them stay up.
I have also been working on a shirt for my husband, and playing with some feet from my old Janome, that I suddenly realised would probably fit my Husqvarna.
Wonderful Vicki has sent me the Claire Shaeffer instructions for the quilted Chanel jacket, and I will definitely do something with them tomorrow. They were very useful yesterday, when I kept distracting myself from horrible paperwork by just having a quick glance at them! Today, when I could have legitimately poured over them at my leisure, I spent most of the day in the garden. When I came indoors, I looked at the very useful links from Anne, and will look through my threads issues for the instructions Blooms mentions in her comment. Thank you very much! I know that several hours on the internet does not seem to get me very far in the short term, but will save me from many mistakes.

Thanks for the info on SWAP. Nice socks--they look warm.

I think the socks came out cooler than stripes. Unlike so many I see, these look really comfortable.
