HOORAY!! All of hems on the six pair of pants for my sister are DONE!!! I am so happy. If she had not called to ask to get the black pair to wear this weekend, I would have continued in my slow pace and got them all to her on Sunday. Now my other sister's pants are still waiting. All I need to do is replace the zipper. LOL I've had those longer than I had the six! LOL

A lot of bloggers have been wondering where their 'mojo' for sewing has gone and I was wondering about mine too. Although I had not considered calling it a mojo, LOL It seems like I was on a roll and then I wasn't. Sometimes I just don't feel motivated and can't get into a sewing mood. We've all been there. Well, after seeing the light at the end of the tunnel on those pants, I kept thinking, I can't wait to sew something! Now I have felt this way before and will again I'm sure. So maybe next time I just don't feel like sewing, perhaps I'll tackle some other project that will help put me in the sewing mood. In my previous posts, there are a couple of things that were put aside, but I'll finish them up this weekend with pictures!

I have a few new patterns to help after finishing up the other things:
Vogue 1042 - I like the top because it has the bra-cups and is fitted and flared skirt, but the jacket is nice too.

















V8473 - Love this jacket!















New Look 6788 - I just really like this for Spring.



















One other thing, I have not added any new fabrics to my collection so far this year! Hmmmm That will probably change soon! LOL Until next time.

What I did recently to get bsck into the sewing mood was make an easy project like slippers. Because they are so easy and quick yyou get some instant sewing satisfaction.
