I swore I wouldn’t enter another contest. I never win, and frankly, that pisses me off. Okay, I know that I have no where near the talent and skills of the winners, but it still annoys me.
I have about three long-sleeved casual tops – football, football and Canadian Olympic Team. I wanted something new and normally I’d go shop for something at the January clearance sales, but I shopped my pattern and fabric stash instead.
I’ve been ogling choker tunics and dresses since last summer, and finally had the right fabric and pattern.
We’ve had a cold winter in Atlanta (yes, freezing temperatures!). In my closet there are 2 cold-weather robes – one leopard print, the other Hello Kitty – and both have been worn to death. Time for something a bit more adultish.
We’re a third of the way through the first month of the new year and I have yet to sew anything for me.
Several quick Christmas projects, including one on my new coverstitch.
In this part of the world, vests are standard wear for autumn and winter. I have a few in my closet but had never considered making one until I saw a sample garment at Hobby Lobby, placed right beside the fabric and patterns. Does anyone else think longingly of the days when fabric stores had beautifully made sample garments placed with the fabric? Smart marketing – it makes we buyers think, “I want that!”.
