WORK WERE THURSDAY...

...oh yes, Amen!  I do love this jumper.  Remember, it's McCall's 7014, my knock off of a knock off of a Ralph Lauren Blue Label Dellora Tweed Dress that I blogged about here.  I love it when a project turns out exactly as I envisioned it - and this one did.

Forgot to take my point and shoot to work today so I had to resort to my cell phone.  My kids are teaching me Instagram and other technological things.  They are amazed and giggly to know that I am even interested in social networking but they all loved this jumper.  We snapped a few pictures just before we left for an early morning job shadowing trip.

Meanwhile, there are soooooo many potential sewing projects floating around in my head.  I just want to sew and sew, and sew up so many things.  I keep telling myself not to get so bogged down in planning details that it makes deciding on a new project confusing.  I have a few "I really need" items and lots more "I want" things to make.  Right now I need to concentrate more on cake rather than frosting...

  1. What a smart looking jumper. I have never noticed that pattern before, but it looks like a good one. I think I will need to add it to my next order.

    1. Thanks Teri. I bought the pattern as soon as it was released but hadn't given it much thought until I saw it made by someone else. I'm glad I gave it a whirl.

  2. This jumper looks fantastic on you Faye! And I know what you mean about trying not to over plan so that you won't get indecisive...

  5. Oh Linda this is such a smart looking style on you. It IS a good feeling when things come out as you envisioned. My mind is getting overcrowded with thoughts of garments I want to make too. I do love your jumper though.

    1. Thanks Cecil. I wanted something just a bit retro and this jumper met that vision.

  6. Same here about over planning. Too many ideas causes me to procrastinate, then nothing gets done. That jumper is a real winner. Love it!

  10. Nice!!! I'm a jumper and boots fan too! Your outfit looks great! How lucky you are to have your students show you Instagram. I'm going to try to figure it out. I should have learned it before I left the college this summer while I had all those students to show me how. They are so smart with all that stuff!
