Wrapping up March

Okay, I'm going to be upfront about it and admit it! I went stark raving crazy and bought 54 yards of fabric this month. Yes, I'm hanging my head in shame but with a slight twinkle in my eye...cause I've blown that goal all to h*ll! Next month I hope to do better cause I can only go up from the hole I've dug myself into! *sigh*

So even though there was a huge amount of excitement, due to "The Little Prince's" arrival...


...gratituous baby shot...

I didn't sew for two weekends, yet I managed to finish 3 garments using 6 yards of fabric...which when you think about it is but a drop in the bucket to 54 yards but at least I do have something going out! All 3 pieces were knit garments - fast sews - but "The Gladiator Dress" as I've taken to calling it...was a new adventure for me. The 4 piece set that the knit dress and the other 2 pieces are a part of still needs the skirt to be completed. I may or may not get to it this weekend, because I do have some out and about plans for Saturday. But it will be finished before the month's end because the cardigan, tank top and skirt will make a wonderful springy outfit.

I am not counting "The Dreaming of Spring" dress in this month's totals...because it's not done. However, I'm very pleased with the progress I've made on it and will finish it up this weekend. Now that the weather is getting warmer, the days are getting longer and my creative soul is seriously stirring...I plan on working on making quite a few more dresses...'cause you know how much I love a dress!

I'm making no pledges for April except that I will be sewing...*LOL*...and spending quality time with my sewing machine!!!

  2. SUCH a punim! I love seeing babies when they're brand new; they change so fast that even a glimpse of a newborn at the mall is a special event.

  12. Yikes, 54! The good thing is that you'll sew it up before you know it. :)

    That is such a handsome baby, god bless him. :) Little men like this one make me go ga-ga. Just today I got to see my little man. Ahh my gummi, I love that little boy so much.

    Hugs,
    Lory

  13. Gratuitous baby shot, love it! I'm on a self imposed fabric diet at the moment and it's hard, but I'm only doing it because I have enough stuff to pack for my move already. Soon as thats done I'm hitting the stores!

  14. Beautiful baby! Is he thinking what to say after you have just confessed to the 54 yards?? Lol! Can't wait to see all the garments that will result from your spree this month.

  15. Bring on those baby shots! And the 54 yards? I say, if you're going down, go down in flames! Just kidding, but guess what? Life's too short to pass on simple pleasures like great fabric and cool grandkids.

  16. So …… you include a gratitutous baby shot to garner sympathy because you fell off the fabric buying wagon?!?!? Wee, it worked! Your Little Prince is beautiful.

  18. Sounds like fun- 54 yards. Let's see some of it.

  19. Well....it was just a couple of years ago that I bought fifty something yards in May and still managed to make parity by the end of the year. You've got a head start on me; you can sew that up! Or at least sew up the equivalent thereof.

    So long as things like theater productions or church costumes don't interfere with your personal sewing time ;).

    Thanks for keeping me inspired!!!

  20. He is totally gorgeous! Are you going to share these 54 yards with us? I know that the spring dress has some of it, but If I remember correctly, only 1.5 yd. I need some vicarious buying pleasure, having been good at only 2 yards.

    ReplyDelete
  21. You can just blame that 54 yards on pregnancy and nesting hormones you picked up by osmosis from the little prince's mother! You can even blame any extra calories you might have consumed on that too!
    Love the baby pic and love the dress.

  26. He's so darling. My babies were almost all bald, so I really goo at babies with the full hair option!

    And 54 yards of promises and possibilities...

  27. He looks so deep in thought....gorgeous.

  28. 54 yards? You're making me look like an amateur! I bought a lot of fabric in March, around 32 yards, so I need to get sewing. Good thing I have a service project to do in conjunction with the ASG Conference in July.

    Also, your little grandson is so precious! What a cutie!

  29. I can hardly imagine the treasures that will come from that 54 yards. My purchases were in the 30 + yard range also, purely amateur.

    Gorgeous fabric and gorgeous grandson to cuddle. Congratulations on both fronts

  30. Your grand son is thinking what is she going to make with the 54 Yards well he will watch and wait. He is to cute

    ReplyDelete
  31. The same is going on here: I'm buying way much more fabric than I am capable of spending, lol. I wish I had your storage capacity!

    ReplyDelete
  32. So I don't feel bad - I purchased 27yds of fabric in one store and thank goodness the bag was too heavy to carry around, b/c I wanted to go to another fabric shop.

    Another reason why I am on a tunic rampage... because most of the fabrics were cut in increments of 2yds for making tunics.
