...and finally I have some time to work on them. This weekend I will be making more basics using some pretty fabrics from the collection...
The lavender will become a TNT dress. Can't decide if I want some seaming or a straight version of the dress. Once I start working with the fabric, I will know what to do. The gray knit will be a cardigan from Burda 8869. Both pieces of fabric are from Fabric Mart acquired this year. Of course, neither are still available on the website but pontes are currently 40% off, if you're interested!
I will spend most of the weekend in the sewing cave which I'm very excited about. I feel like I've neglected the time that I need there to make me whole. Which makes me even happier about the five days of sewing, I'll enjoy next week...in the sewing cave. I don't think I've hit my creative stride this year so I'm wondering what garment(s) are just on the edge there, waiting to come out of my sewing machine. What will I make this year that will take my breathe away...because I can tell you that I haven't sewn it yet!
Photography Follow Up:
I haven't sewn much lately. So I haven't had photography challenges although my youngest daughter has volunteered her services which has eased some of my concerns. As you know, I was using the self timer on my camera because the remote I bought, just wouldn't work with the camera. Recently, I found the actual Canon remote for my camera and after doing a little investigating purchased it.
I will be trying this out soon. I really want to be able to take pics outside on the front lawn without having to do the run back and forth thing. I don't feel silly in the house because no one can see me but my neighbors just might think I've lost it if I'm doing that out on the sidewalk!
Speaking of photography and pictures ~ I found this great blog post by another Carolyn, who authors the blog, Allspice Abounds. It's called "5 Simple Photography Tips for Sewing Bloggers." It's concise, to the point and understandable for me or someone like me who is never going to really be "into" photography but needs good quality pictures for their blog.
Digging back into the photo archives:
Here is another photo of me. I'm 8 and in the 4th grade in this school picture. I'm wearing one of my favorite dresses...seriously loved this dress! Hey back when I went to school, little girls wore dresses to school with white ankle socks and saddle shoes. I don't think I wore jeans to school until I was in high school. Anyway this is me...at 8!
I'll have more sewing updates soon!
...as always more later!
