Let's Try This Again!

It's been so long since I posted anything that I'm not sure how to do it. Well, let's see: I've been sewing and admiring everyone's creations. Here are just of a few sewing projects of what I've made.

My granddaughter did not want to have her photo taken.  This was taken last year when we were about to go to dinner.  We were on a cruise celebrating my birthday.  I made the skirt that I have on and the top as well. 
A few weeks later, out celebrating my mom's 80th birthday.  I made the dress I have on in this photo.  
In this photo is a top and skirt that don't really seem to coordinate.  I just completed this a few days ago.  Sorry for the wrinkles, but it needs a thorough pressing.  

All of the patterns used for the projects have been in my stash and so were the fabrics.  The skirts are go to patterns I use frequently when I just want something quick.  The dress in the middle photo is also quick and easy.  I have probably used that pattern about six times in various fabrics.   

I will have to make a better effort to post.  There is so much to admire of other seamstresses work, that I find that I don't take the time to post my own.  I must do better.  

Until next time!

Back On The Blog!

Wow Wow!!!! Happy New Year! I never intended to abandon my blog for three years! My how time can get away. I pray all is well with everyone and you've enjoyed the holiday season and many blessings for the new year! So, in case someone will read this, my family and I are well. I still sew and so does my oldest daughter. I read some of the sewing blogs from time to time. A lot has changed since I last posted here. Social media has taken over so I keep up with the sewing groups on Facebook, Instagram and now periscope (although I have not "scoped" just yet) lol. My plan is to update more frequently and not allow so much time to go by. Take care and see you soon!

New Look 6130

I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving holiday.  Again I have not kept up in updating my blog.  Just doing a lot of other things and having to figure out a few technical issues on my part.

I have been sewing a little and finally showing this outfit. It was a very easy project. I've worn it twice and I have to say it's very comfortable.  I used a moleskin from Joann's that's been in my fabric collection for quite awhile.  

The pattern was pretty much sewn straight from the envelope. That is rare for me.  But the only thing I changed was adding length to the sleeves so they're three-quarter length.   It looks like the pattern  except for that.  Sorry no picture of me wearing it but I received many compliments.  

There's not a lot to say about this except I will probably sew it again.  This project did help me kick start my sewing because I had not sewn much at all since the quick and easy things I made for vacation back in July.  Also, I ordered a few patterns from Club BMV during their out of print clearance for 99 cents. Including Vogue and Kwik-Sew!  Looking forward to receiving that package.

There are many projects I'd like to work on in the near future and will do my best to keep updating frequently.  Thanks for stopping by.

Fall Is Here!

IMG_0053Hello Everyone!  I have been absent from sewing and updating the blog.     The time goes by so quickly and the next thing you know here we are in a new season.  I have not sewn anything since July for my two trips.   I always feel I am not ready no matter what the season change is.  Again I feel this way. I came down to my sewing area Saturday night thinking I'd cut NL 6130 but instead I see the dress and jacket I made in July. It was too warm for it then, but now it will be perfect. I did not add the buttons in July because I decided not to take it on the trip.  So this is what I wore for church yesterday.  I'm glad I went downstairs.  Oh by the way, this is an OOP McCalls 4930.  Its a Palmer/Pletsch Classic Fit dress and jacket.  I thought I had a photo of the pattern, But not at the moment, I can't locate.  Next time.  .
