KICKING STASH WEEK 2...

...I had high hopes of using up a whole lot of fabric during week 2 of the Kicking Stash Challenge (SKIRT WEEK).  Of course my work week was off the chain, and things just didn't turn out the way I  planned.  Sewing for the week did not start until Friday night - but I just had to make sure I got at least a couple skirts completed this week for the challenge. 

I know I've mentioned time and time again how much I LOVE KNIT SKIRTS! How many skirts do I have already???  Interesting question!, I really can't tell you.  But what's a couple more going to hurt - they make daily dressing so easy, and every girl needs several essential knit pencil skirts, (that's what I call them.

During this "Kicking Stash" challenge when I pick a piece of fabric yardage from my stash the plan is to completely annihilate it - so I went ahead and made two skirts.  One for my greedy self, and the other as a gift.

Tried a new elastic waistband treatment learned from Charlene Steward's Periscope last night and I love it.

Now to see if I can get at least one more skirt completed before 11:59 p.m. tomorrow night...
