I mean I have to go to work every day and sometimes work gets really busy - out of the house at 5:45 am back in the house at 8 or 9 pm so there just isn't much sewing going on...
However, there is purchasing going on...well that is one of the reasons that I put with the hellish hours to make money to buy sewing stuff and oh yeah, to have a place to put it! *LOL*
Here's what came yesterday:
Yeap, my ATS order arrived lickety split! Now I have thread but no where to put it!
I only own two of these thread holders (toy car carriers purchased from Wal-Marts - who no longer makes them!) and I think I am going to have to investigate finding something else like them because I love these things!
I also got this today:
Now what does this movie have to do with sewing? If you can get your hands on a copy, rent it. Lana Turner wears some amazing outfits in this movie and I just love them! It kinda goes with the Oleg Cassini book, "A Thousand Days of Magic" that I keep thumbing through and drooling over!
Finally, I hardly ever look at the New Look patterns because usually they are only graded up only to a size 18. So imagine my surprise when I found these two in a size 22!
New Look 6779
New Look 6779
New Look 6788
I immediately put them in the shopping cart and bought them...so they are winging their way to me as we speak. They should make cute summer work outfits, right?!
I did baste the collar onto the Barrie Pace jacket and I have to admit that after a couple of days of seeing the collar on the jacket, I am inspired to finish it. It will be a cute jacket, will go with several dresses already in my wardrobe, as well as, and the dress that I want to make!
I probably won't be blog again until the weekend, work is just that crazy! Hopefully I can get that jacket finished and in wearable shape so that I can move on! I'm really ready to move on! *LOL*
