....well I'm really still trying to get use to it, if you can believe that. It's so pretty, but it's almost like I'm afraid to touch anything. I don't want my paint to get smudged (lol). But here's a review of what I've been up to lately:
I did some pattern organizing. Yes, I do have an addiction, BUT I am not interested in any type of intervention as of yet. However, some of the patterns did have to leave the sewing room area. McCalls and Vouge are still housed in the room, but Simplicity, Butterick and New Look are now boxed up and will find a new home in the laundry room. Not sure how this will work out. I'm trying it on for fit right now, but I do have a plan "B" in case this thing keeps growing - build another room (ha ha).
I remade the Vogue 8305 wiggle knit dress. I never could get rid of a wavy side seam problem in the maroon version that I made.
|So after three attempts to fix the problem I had to ditch the project. Yes, I was sad about it, but I've learned - "you have to know when to fold them" or quit, so it ended up in file 13.|
I cut out this pattern last night and want to get started on it then, but I'm finding out that after eating dinner I'm no longer fit to sew because sleepiness soon sets in - what a bummer. I want to make two versions of this pattern. If I can get off the computer maybe I can start them today.
|I need to hem this choir robe this weekend. It's for the para-pro that helps me out SO MUCH at school. I'm a selfish seamstress as such, but you just have to say yes sometimes.|
MY 4TH YEAR BLOG ANNIVERSARY!!!I am so guilty of writing long posts, but I have to announce that I celebrated the start of my 4th year of BLOGGING on February 10th. So let's commence with the CELEBRATION!
Blogging is an important part of my sewing adventure. It provides an unlimited learning resource, and is a vehicle for sharing or giving back to the environment that actually affords me so much entertainment. So to celebrate the start of my fourth year I will be offering not 1 but 4 give-a-ways (yeah one for each year). Starting today I'll announce a new give-a-way every Saturday, with the winner announced the following Saturday.
- be or become a follower of my blog;
- mention why you are interested in the gift in a comment to this post;
- mention the give-a-way on your blog (if you have one), and link back to this post.
WEEK ONE GIVE-A-WAY
