Did you think I disappeared completely? I would not have blamed you if you did! To say my sewing mojo bit the dust is an understatement. Other than some repairs, I did no sewing during August. Oh, I had good intentions. Every day at work I would think about sewing projects I needed to start. I even washed some fabric. By the time I had finished dinner all those ideas of sewing and projects had vanished.
Oh wait…..I lie. I did sew up a fast, down and dirty full 50’s crinoline petticoat. It took about 10 minutes once I got the serger to do what I wanted and it is a big full petticoat with no need to spend hours gathering. Anyone interested in the secret??
But….alas….that was as far as I got. Was it the heat? The summer? Who knows. For weeks I would walk past my machines trying not to look at them so I did not have to the see the accusations of neglect.
I have made a pact with myself to work on a sewing project over the long weekend. I guess this is my version of the me made September. Need to do something to kick start the sewing.
While not sewing, I had the opportunity to do a bit of cleaning of the sewing area. I had forgotten about all the monthly Originator Smart Fashion booklets I had inherited with the dress forms. Boy are they amazing. Wanna peak?? I think you all deserve a look for sticking with my silence.
|I love these shirt; especially|
the striped one. What
a great way to emphasize
|Is this dress just to die for?|
Now, I noticed online people are selling CD copies of these for 10$ a pop. Wow!! I never thought anyone would ever pay for these. I have a bunch. I would have to believe it would be a copyright violation. Wonder how people get away with this. I guess they could be old enough to escape the copyright.
I would rather share these out to my readers………….
