It never ceases to amaze me... The things that God does for me that is. Just look at the wonderful gift that I received in the mail today from Carol. I can't link her here because she doesn't have a blog. But she does read mine!, and she noticed the sewing book dream list that I have listed at the bottom of my blog screen, contacted me and offered a duplicate that she had. The Singer Tailoring Book, two Threads Magazines (that I didn't already have in my collection) and a Vogue Pattern. This is so amazing! Carol, the books and pattern found a good home and I want to give a big SHOUT OUT of thanks to a sharing friend I didn't even know I had.
I haven't posted since last Tuesday, but I have been sewing. I'm making two of these. I agreed to make two jackets for girls in the Future Business Leader's of America organization at my school. When I was asked to make them, I was trying my best to say NO, but my mouth opened up and said yes. I had planned on starting them on Friday but that didn't work. So I worked on them Saturday, Sunday and Monday evening. They're made from a light weight navy linen-like fabric. No sewing tonight though cause I'm tired. All I have left is to sew up the sides/sleeves, sew on the buttons and hem both the sleeves and bottom hem. If all goes as planned I should finish both tomorrow night.
Well, that's all for tonight, nighty nite...got to go read my new books!
