A finished Tova

July 18, 2012

As I was doing my fabric housekeeping a few weeks ago, I came face to face with my unfinished Tova. I had it all cut out months ago, and then put it on the to do list. Except it wasn’t getting done. I was slightly intimidated by the thought of sewing something to wear in public, especially for myself.  But Very Kerry Berry had a lovely sew-a-long, and then my friend Bonnie gave me a nudge. And I had committed 3 yards of shot cotton to the project (it was already cut!) So this past weekend I finally tackled it, and am happy to say it is finished.

I even think it’s nice enough to wear in public. I’ll be at the Quilts At The Creek event at Black Creek Pioneer Village (Toronto) on July 28 & 29. And I’ll definitely be sporting my new Tova on one of those days. Do stop by and say hello!

(PS – you can buy the pattern here)

    I finished my Wiksten Tank last week, after having it cut out for as long as you had your Tova. (Truth be told, my Tova is waiting too,,,but toss a broken wrist in there, and I’ve had an excuse. Maybe this week.) Looks great!

    It looks great, Pam! Totally wearable (that’s my fear too)!

    Congratulations Pam! I’m proud of you. As it happens I just finished my white linen dress today too! I think we deserve a coffee out so we can show off our new clothes to each other. I did notice you were too shy to model your Tova. ;)
