Sunday Miscellany

It's Sunday and while I've been thinking of sewing I haven't been doing much and still haven't taken pictures of the Carolyn Top so instead I'm sharing a few thoughts...

  • Today is the last day of January and in 25 days I will be in Seattle for the weekend! Yes!!!! This time I plan to spend some time sewing with Gaylen and fabric shopping in Seattle.
  • In 11 days, TGIT comes back on and I can finally find out what happened to Annelise on HTGWM, what's going on with Olivia Pope and the Gladiators, but most importantly who the h*ll messed with Meredith on Gray's Anatomy - yes these are my personal friends and I don't care if you believe it or not.
  • I used the last of my VISA gift card for a fabric purchase of ITY knits from Fabric Mart. I posted this picture to Instagram of the new fabrics ~
  •  
  • Oh and I bought a couple of patterns too!
  • So no more fabric purchases until I get to Puyallup and the Marcy Tilton booth where I can touch pieces for myself. 
  • I've decided to make another topper like the last one but with the adjustments I suggested using this fabric ~
  • Toppers allow me to wear a "visible" me-made with RTW which helps me feel a little more like myself! Because it's gonna take years to get back to 90% of my wardrobe being me-made again.
  • It was so cold last week that I was swathed in cashmere to keep warm, so glad the temperatures will be more moderate this week! Will be able to wear more me-made.
  • The grandbabies were here most of the weekend so another reason no sewing was going on.

Hopefully when it calms down this weekend, I will get back into the sewing cave.  There are a couple of things that I want to make before I head to Seattle, so I need some sewing time.  Thank goodness for President's Day weekend!

Did you get to sew this weekend? I hope so!

...as always more later!

  2. Grandbabies are a great reason to not sew. I don't have any yet, so I sewed this weekend.

    This was on my SS15 sewing list. I hope to finish it by SS16.

  3. I'm glad you're coming to Puyallup--and especially glad you'll have a little time to visit Seattle!

  4. Doggone you and your fabricmart ravings! Or maybe thank you, I'm not sure which. Just went and made my first purchase online there and I guess I'll have to wait and see. I think they should give you some affiliate pay. I'm suggesting that if there's a place on their 5 dollar survey.

  7. My sister lives close to puyallup and we have never gone fabric shopping. She not a sewist and has no interest in it . On my next trip for a visit I will make that trip. Love the knits.

  9. What a delicious haul of fabrics and patterns! And that black and white for the topper has really great visual interest even before you see the little peek-a-boos of red. Totally craveworthy! Cindy, Creative Hormone Rush
