Hello Sewing Friends...

...it's been a while I know - just shy of a month to be exact, and I must say that I have missed writing my regular posts.  You automatically know that when there is no blogging, most likely there is no sewing going on.  I needed to take just a minute to get a grip of my work life summer transition.  That being done, it was time to take care of the sewing room...
Took care of the floor area first so sewing could take place
It's amazing how much I really, really miss sewing when I just don't have time to get to it. So when I got a chance, I needed some really quick gratification to get me back into the swing of things in the sewing room.  I had a couple of birthday gifts that I wanted to make so I chose Butterick 6425's cold shoulder knit top because I had made it up four times already.
                 


Same pattern two looks) with just a bit of modification added to the second top).  Both fit well thank goodness, and I was able to get two June birthday presents taken care of.  It feels good to be back in my sewing environment...

  2. Is that a new floor, Faye? It's lovely. Nothing like the glow of warm golden wood.

    1. I love these floors Bunny. No they were done back in 2012. Just removed the carpet, scrubbed them down and added two coats of polyethylene (which was awful at the time because it took so long to dry - maybe because we did them in the winter).
