Reflections on a Saturday Afternoon

I'm moving a little slowly this afternoon.  After two great late nights in the City, I'm a little tired!  But I'm also thrilled with the experience of spending time with such wonderful women.  Today's post will be pic heavy showing some of my adventures from "The Marji Weekend!"

First gifts - I got presents:

This is my all time favorite!  I love the blog, Mrs. O and can't believe that I now own the book!  Yippee!!!

Then when I got home last night I found these two patterns from Lisa Currie:

Lisa - I think you've inspired my Thanksgiving Weekend project!  I haven't made anything vintage recently and this jacket and dress works in my new wardrobe planning!!!

Someone brought me Simplicity Patterns, too - you know who you are and how much I appreciate it!  Now I have the pattern I need for one of my outfits for SWAP!

Thanks ladies for your generousity and for thinking of me!

Now a few shots of the evening:

The Gang's all here!

Ladies I had an amazing time!  It was so wonderful to meet you all in real life!  We shared experiences, talked sewing and more sewing...and I have to tell you that Claudine had on THE.BEST.SKIRT!  You should have seen it moved when she walked.  Just awesome!  Thank you again for taking time out of your busy lives to come and spend a few hours talking sewing!!!

...and Mardel and Marji thanks for sharing your pics!!!


  1. Sounds like you have a fabulous time - great stuff!

  2. All good things! The coat in Vogue 6732 is to die for!

  3. Carolyn,
    So glad you like the patterns. I can't wait to see what creations come from them.

  4. Let me just cut to the chase and say I WISH I HAD COME UP!!!!

  5. What a great time for you all.
    Wish New York wasn't that far away. Great pictures.

  6. What I noticed first? Happy Happy Faces!!! You all look like you were having a wonderful time.

  7. I'm so envious that you have sewing companions so close. I think I will move to the USA.

  8. It looks like you all had such a wonderful time - the pictures are great. And you got some fabulous gifts. I am going to put the Mrs O book on my Amazon wish list - she always looks so amazing, I always feel inspired by her style choices.

  9. It was wonderful meeting you, Carolyn. Thanks for the nice comments on my skirt. It is actually one of the few things remaining in my wardrobe that I did not make, but I love it anyway.

  10. ah ha ha ha ... I remember exactly what I was saying when that photo was shot. I couldn't shut up long enough to smile for the camera LOL!!
    What a great evening!!

  11. It looks like a good time was had by all--and everyone looks so chic and stylish. Fabulous fun!

  12. What FUN!!!!!! Can I come next time????????? Pleeeaaassseeee?????

  13. Yes, it was too, too much fun! I felt very lucky to be there. Knew you'd love the book, C. You should do a review because I think our fellow sewists would really appreciate this book.

  14. It really is just so much fun to see all the pictures and hear about the real-life connections!

  15. Wow, that's a pretty big group of familiar faces there. How fun!! I love sewing get-togethers.

  16. What a wonderful evening you all must have had! It looks like a great time!

  17. How much fun does that look like? I can see why you moved on after dinner because there's no way you'd ever run out of things to talk about with that group of ladies.

  18. I wish that I could have been with all of you.

  19. This looked like a great time! I am soooo envious.

  20. Lucky ladies! Looks like you all were having a great time.

  21. Looks like a wonderful time, you ALL looked great! And thanks for the Mrs. O blog, she has a great sense of style.

  22. Just looking at your photos made me smile. Everyone looked absolutely fabulous! I can't wait for my next meet up.


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! It is so appreciated.
