I'm free!

Well at least for the next 9 days! *LOL* I am sitting in front of my computer at 6:45 pm on a Friday afternoon...that in itself is a big deal since I don't normally arrive home until well after 8 p.m.

My office closed at 3 p.m. today and even though I didn't leave at 3, I was out a 1/2 hour later. Took the subway down to the garment district to pick up some lining and some zippers - didn't accomplish the zipper part, Steinlauf and Stoeller were closed but did visit my friends at Ebad Fabrics (if you are ever in NYC fabric shopping, stop by and tell Nabil hello - they have the best price on beautiful linens!). He also talked me into a beautiful a 3 yard piece of black herringbone twill linen. This will make a great pair of pants!

And now I am home, taking some time to surf the web, open my mail and rest up! My order from SewMamaSew was in the mailbox and I am thrilled at the pieces. Tomorrow I will pick my baby up from the sewing machine store - she is ready! There was a message that my machine is at Sears but I am a little leery...we will see! No matter what, I am sewing tomorrow. Picking out my first pattern and going for it!

I will post my all about my sewing vaca here!


  1. Welcome home and may the sewing gods smile on you and let you have a fun/productive/frustration free week.
    Cant' wait to see what emerges.

  2. I can't even imagine how much you can accomplish in 9 days!

  3. Good for you Caro. Have you seen the line at Butterick "Lifestyle Wardrobe"? They have some nice looking professional and casual wear.
    Happy 9 days of sewing bliss.

  4. Enjoy! I'm a little jealous, a whole week sewing vacation! Would like that.

  5. Please report as soon as you have regained custody and test-driven your baby. Here's hoping she's as good as new. Enjoy your 9 days, you lucky thing, you....

  6. Well, it sounds like everything is coming up roses. Can't wait to see what you crank out over the next week!

  7. Yeah Sewing Week!!

    I am going to think vacation thoughts as I check your blog. I can't wait to see how much fun you have and what you create!

    And good luck picking up your baby! May she run sweetly.

  8. I can't wait to see what you are sewing next!

  9. I love the Threads cover dress... totally gorgeous.. Love your fabric choice... and anxious to hear the details on the making of it. I am itching to do a dress, but since I'm a novice.. I need to continue practicing on easy projects.
