The Christmas is over. It was fine to spend it with my family this year.
My sister prepared a lot of great dishes – it was the traditional Polish Christmas Eve. We had ‘Barszcz’ (Borscht – red beets soup) with ‘uszkami’ (a ravioli) filled with mushrooms collected by my niece, fish and ‘kluski z makiem’ (noodles with poppy seeds and raisins) – delicious, and more.
There was a Christmas tree of course and presents for everyone.
We are now back home having few days off.
Before going back to Poland I will try to finish the French jacket for my mother. I took the muslin with me as I knew she lost weight on hospital meals. She is now size 10. I had to as well adjust the waistband in the trousers.
I will first adjust the patterns and start tracing the patterns on the fabric – again.
I gave my first self-made Tailor’s ham to my niece. I have just finished the new Tailor’s ham – standing. I need more sawdust for my next big one. It is still too soft.
In the end I started working on the buttonholes in my French jacket. Yesterday I was looking for the silk threads I have bought for about an hour. It was just laying on a table … Anyway – all buttonholes are marked.
I cannot believe it is almost the end of 2013. I see wonderful Top 5 (10) posts that are appearing in the blogosphere. It could be good idea to look back – I will try to write a post. Looking forward to see yours! Or maybe it is better to focuse on the future?
