See that pile?! That is the fabric that I've promised others from my collection. Those boxes are going to blog owners so I'm hoping that they will share with others what I've shared with them. Can I tell you that this was HARD! I love my fabric collection so trying to pick 4 pieces to give away several times over is challenging. Especially since I don't want anyone thinking that I'm giving them leftovers and keeping the good stuff for myself. I'm also hoping that the pieces I pick will be liked and appreciated in their new homes...
I can see some space on several of the shelves now. This will be 20 more pieces of fabric out of the collection along with the yardage I've sewn. But honestly this is just a drop in the bucket. I still haven't touched the four large bins in the garage yet. I'm thinking next month's winner is going to get "garage fabric" so that I can make a dent in those bins!
Speaking of fabric...Alexandra, thanks for contacting me. I will put your fabric in the mail this week.

All of the fall magazines I subscribe to are finally here. That's a lot of ad pages and trees...but I'm wallowing in them and enjoying the glossy ads. I will have my "What I want to sew for fall" list soon...but just know that there will be quite a bit of pleather sewn this fall/winter! That I can happily say will come from my collection.

After my Mood project is complete, I'll be headed back to the Burda dress. I have 9 work days left before I go on vacation and I may or may not finish it before then but I'm not worried because then I'll have 10 vacation days to wallow in my sewing room.
Hopefully I'll have a better output and experience than I did last year...cause I really can't wait for this sewing vacay. It calms and centers me, allowing me to spend quality time creating, without the deadlines of the weekend. Work has been all-consuming these last couple of months and I really just want to sleep late and sew.
I actually found a quote on Pinterest that says that...
That's my weekend round-up! Hope you are having a good one making things you love!
...as always more later!
