I sewed in the middle of the week!

I can't remember the last time I did that!  But I actually sewed quite a bit yesterday evening...and I have photographic proof!  Bad photographic proof but proof nonetheless.
  


So tonight I came home and tried on the basted together dress and while I got the width right, the length is a little wonky.  I will be removing the length I added, cause it ain't working.


Anyway, I'm looking forward to the weekend!  I'm looking forward to sewing all weekend long!  It's back...my mojo is back from vacation and I can't wait to take it out for a spin...thank goodness 'cause I was beginning to be worried that it was never coming back...silly I know but sadly true.


I have a list of garments that I want to sew...as an aside, I'm pinching myself because I have a list again!  And I'm off for four days next week for Thanksgiving and all of my children, their spouses and my grandchildren are coming here...so no traveling, extra hands to help cook and clean-up which means I will have a good three days to sew.  I'm sooooo excited! 


As an aside, Elaray asked if this was the first sewing room that I've had.  No, it isn't.  When I was married I lived in a townhouse and we converted the basement into my sewing room and the girls playroom.  I spent many wonderful weekends there, sewing and listening to my daughters play...learning my craft, teaching others to sew and inspiring others to love this gift as much as I do.  So yes, I've had several sewing rooms in different incarnations...I've been sewing since I was 11 and it's been an integral part of my life since then.


Finally I'm slowly but surely getting used to my new room.  I'm working out the kinks but it's time to sew...and I'm planning on doing just that!  So look for the finished version of McCalls 6395 this weekend.


...as always, more later!

  19. I just want to tell you that I adore you and your sewing! Such wonderful clothes. I've been looking at your blog occasionally for a couple of years now thinking "someday I'll sew for myself too" and since I have a similar body type I especially like your creations. I just bought a dressform so I can make things for me a little easier. This means I'm going to follow you a little closer and with a little more enthusiasm. I hope you don't mind! Thanks for the inspiration!
