I could have gone biking today, maybe.
Or picking elderflowers and make elderflower syrup.
But it's raining.
So, instead, I'll sit down, watch the film about apostle Paul that I got recorded by someone from TV, on a videotape, in an awful quality, many years ago, and keep working on my chemise.
That's the plan, anyway. Going to cut out and sew the side gores.
The film's not very good in my opinion, but that only makes it the perfect background for my sewing. I've normally been watching MASH or Alarm für Cobra 11 in such circumstances recently. You know, something I do not have to watch all the time, just listen. The quality of the image in this one is awful (TV, to videotape, to DVD years later - you get the idea), so I don't have to watch it very much either... Still, I feel like watching it today. Or, rather, listening to it. (If you're wondering, I'm sewing it by hand. That's why I can watch a film while working on it.)
I'm making the chemise from the new batiste (or what it is). It turned out to be the perfect amount of fabric for it, and there were some flaws (ah, cheap fabric...). So I saw no need to cut into my older, nicer batch of batiste for something that gets worn underneath other clothes anyway.
