Where does the time go? I have such good intentions to post sewing things, but then life happens and weeks go by. I have continued to sew and have been working on some new ideas, classes and sample garments. I won’t show those yet – not until they are ready!
My favorite event of the past month has been a workshop with Cindy Foose! Our guild had her come and teach for 3 days – it was such fun! Cindy is a wonderful teacher and I enjoyed her class immensely. If you have a chance to take a class from her – go for it – you won’t be disappointed.
Yesterday I decided I was going to sew ONE thing. LOL! So I did. Between cleaning, sorting out things that I need to let go of (sewing supplies!), printing class materials and meal prep, I managed to cut out and sew a pair of pants. Not a huge accomplishment, but I met my goal.
I found this cute top at a consignment store and paid only a couple dollars for it. It is by Orient Express and is well made, very lightly worn and the smocking is so pretty!
I’m not a fan of the bias band being sewn down by machine, but I’m not about to correct that. In my stash was some wonderful pants weight twill from Patsy Aiken. It has been aging for a few years. 🙂 It was a perfect match for the top, so it was chosen for the pants.
I thought that the top was a bit plain, so I added the rick rack to the top. Just like that I have an outfit! Score!!!
Today I hope to cut out and sew a quick jumper. I hope to quickly find the embroidery design that I’ll use on it. I don’t know about you, but I can spend hours looking for the perfect embroidery design. 😛 After that, I have a few Christmas outfits to complete – only a couple weeks until Thanksgiving, so I’d better get on it!!!
