I had a really lazy weekend - but enjoyable! I did get together with my sewing buddies Lisa and Ebony on Sunday Afternoon, and we sewed up a storm in my little house. I literally do mean a storm, it rained cats and dogs all afternoon. Priceless, I love the rain, especially when I'm at home for the entire day. Before the sewing started we feasted on my Greek Shish Kabobs, mmmmmmmmm! I think everybody enjoyed them, we ate them all. I hadn't made them in ages, but wanted to do something special for my friends. I'll have to do these again, but next time I'll ask someone to help me with the assembly line for putting them together. It'll go much faster that way. If you'd like the recipe just let me know.
On Saturday I didn't do much, but I did cut out three patterns - so that took a while with many internet and television breaks in between. Laying out and cutting is much easier with the big cutting table that Brenda gave me. I cut out two tops and a pair of pants. I started working on this top (you know I'm a top person...they are so quick and easy - usually) on Sunday at our sew-a-long, and finished it last night.
I love this fabric. I picked up at WalMart ($2.50) in Milledgeville. I so wish I could find this print in a knit. The pattern went together nicely, even though I actually put the bias arm facing on backwards, it still looks nifty! I will make this top again, maybe I'll get brave and try this same pattern in a knit fabric.
I'll start working on the second top tonight but, IT'S SURPRISE that I'll show you as soon as it's finished. I'll sew just a little bit and then it's off to bed cause tomorrow is HUMP DAY AGAIN!!!
Ooops, almost forgot, OMEGA at SEW HOOKED gave me this nifty award, the award for a attitude of gratitude! So I'm passing it along to ALL OF THE PEOPLE I COMMUNICATE WITH THROUGH BLOGS. Please know that I am EXTREMELY GRATEFUL FOR EACH AND EVERY ONE YOU YOU, SO PLEASE TAKE THIS AWARD THE NEXT TIME YOU VISIT MY BLOG!
