Pre-Industrial Sunday Sewing

 A strong thunderstorm came through on Sunday and our power went out at about one in the afternoon and didn’t come back on until almost 9 pm. Before it went out, though, I finished this:

This was the relatively easy drawstring skirt from the funky pieced batik fabric. It would have been even easier if I hadn’t done the rickrack accents. Rickrack is a PITA to work with.

After the power went out I read through my sewing books, my Threads magazines, and hung out with the family and ate BBQ.

It was quiet and peaceful and lovely. The power should go out more often (on absolutely gorgeous summer days with perfect temperatures).

Of course, I didn’t get any writing done (except this), so everything will be a bit delayed this week.
