I've also been collecting vegies for dinner; a fresh leek perfect for a yummy risotto, and some fresh peas.

(bad photo due to poor weather in Melbourne, as usual...)
Not only is it the first time I've ever made a piece of clothing, its the first time I've put a zip into anything. The only thing I'm not to happy with is that the waist is a tiny bit higher on one side of the zip compared with the other, but that's just a learning curve.

It gave me the chance to get a few things done in the vegie patch in preparation for summer; I planted up some basil, pumpkin, chilli, coriander, zucchini and tomatoes. The sun and heat also caused the Quince to burst into flower, and the cherry blossom is just starting too.
The evenings are still cool, so I took the opportunity to work with Bliss; I've seen a few Short Story Schnibbles and was inspired. Too late I realised that I need a particular ruler that I don't have. While I wait for one to arrive, I'm getting all the pieces ready.
And I've bought myself a skirt pattern; it's something I've wanted to try for a while, but we'll see how long it takes me to get up the nerve to give it a go. The pattern looks simple enough, and I've certainly got enough fabric to make a few.
(I'm aiming for the longer version on the right)
