Done!

Finally I get to write that title! *LOL*  I just cut the last strand on the white tank top...I'm free! lalalalalalalala!  I'm free and I'm done!

I think I'm gonna sit and read a book tomorrow or maybe watch a movie...my sewing machine and I have spent serious quality time together this last month so it needs a rest and so do I!

Here's a group shot of everything:



That's 5 dresses, 4 tops, 1 pair of pants and a jacket = 11 pieces and 5 of those pieces were sewn this month!

Okay it's been a long week and I didn't get much sleep last night so I'm off to bed soon!  A couple of things first...thank you to everyone who left such nice comments about the beaded dress.  I really appreciate it!  As I promised, I will let you know when the voting starts on Stitchers Guild and finally after the photo galleries are revealed, I will post outtakes of me and my garments from the photo shoot.

Tonight on the way home, I thought ohmy!  I can finally just sew up some dresses without a whole bunch of requirements...so look for spring dresses soon...even a couple from my vintage pattern collection...and I will share what I got from Fabric Mart too!

...as always, more later!  But most especially thanks for stopping by!

  35. When you put your mind to something, look out!

    [Though I can't believe I fell for your "oh I'm going to pull out of the SWAP because of the embellished requirement," ha. That little number -- along with the abstract flower print jacket -- are my favorites.]

    Congrats on such amazing productivity.
