Oh! I almost forgot my June Review! Let’s see, there were four:
They are the Burda WOF Giraffe print jacket, which I’ve both reviewed and blogged, the Burda WOF Satin tunic top, ditto, a blue linen shift which now resides in the Goodwill bag due to its open neckline, and my New Look 6799 birthday dress. You can click on the photos to go to the blog or gallery entry about the garment.
The blue linen shift is McCall’s 5875, and is a nice dress for summer. I’ve worn it twice, but both times felt exposed by the open neckline. I’ll let someone else enjoy it from now on. If I make it again, I’ll substitute the perfect neckline from another dress pattern I have. (You haven’t seen it. It’s a Butterick pattern from 1998.) I doubt I’ll use it again, however, as there are plenty of shifts in the catalog and most more interesting than this one.
Four simple garments a month is apparently the most I can swing right now. That’s fine. I’m delighted that I’m getting that much done–it just doesn’t seem like much as time goes by. Mr H feels the same way about his recovery. He doesn’t realize how much progress he’s made until we look back over what he’s learned each month.
The Mr is able to walk with a hemi-walker now, and, with coaching, say a few words: yes, no, socks, shoes, please, light, I, me, my, you. He takes care of all his daily grooming without any help from me. Plus he can use his wheelchair to do some housework: He’s a whiz at unloading the dishwasher and he’s even mastered the new washing machine.
We’re both very thankful.
