July already?

Honestly, I have no idea where June went. The cold days have required wooly socks and gloves for bike rides to work, evenings knitting and drinking hot chocolate with friends and lots of time hibernating and keeping warm. My Zorzal Shawl has been a constant companion throughout the winter, and is nearly finished. If I stick to it, I'll have it off the needles later this week. 
I took last week off work to have a little break and do some sewing. I'd lost my sewing mojo but I think it was more down to not needing anything in my wardrobe, rather than not wanting to make things. I have a couple of occasions coming up that will require nice dresses, so fabric was purchased and laundered in the winter sun, and then my overlocker broke. It's getting fixed but I'll be without it for a week or so, putting a bit of pressure on my sewing deadline, but these things happen.
This also gives me a bit of time to get my head around inserting invisible zips, doing a small bust adjustme…
