I have no new pieces to share. No fabric to squeal excitedly about since I am on a fabric moratorium. No new patterns to share since "my people" went on vacation during the last Hancocks sale and wasn't available to feed that habit! Absolutely nothing ~ especially since work has been kinda hectic this week and I haven't even had much time to think about sewing....

So, I have been journeying through blogland looking wistfully at what others are making or showing on their blogs:

First - Erica has an article about Stepha Henry who is missing. Check out the details on her blog. Since she is a local girl this has been playing a lot in my area newscasts and has been detailed in all the NY newspapers.

Second - my friend Kathryn (fxzdoc on Stitcher's Guild) has just made the kewlest carwash skirt. You can see it here! I love Kathryn's sewing and get so inspired by what she makes! Enjoy!

Third - I found this at Christina's blog. It isn't the studs that set my mind twirling even though they are a very kewl element ~ it was all the tucking down the front of the blouse that sent my mind whirling and wondering if I had a nice piece of fabric that I could tuck the front of and make into a lightweight summery dress using my TNT dress pattern.

Fourth - check out Shannon's latest creations on her blog! I love her color combination and have found myself looking sideways at this pattern that I had previously dismissed. God, I love it when someone else's ideas make my mind spin!

And lastly - eyelet, eyelet how much I love thee! Check out Cidell's newest dress - Talbots, I think not!

It is day 13 of my fabric moratorium... I may or may not make it to the end of the month. I have friends coming in from out of town and we are headed to Metro Textiles next Friday. Now it is my duty as a good sewing friend to take them there but I have no will power once Kashi starts pulling out fabric, so say a prayer for me that I don't come home with an additional 20 or 30 yards! *LOL*

Well I'm out so enjoy your sewing journeys and stitch something for me!


  1. Thanks for the links - I hadn't seen some of those! You're doing great resisting fabrics!

  2. Love your posts and links. Shannon's recent posts have made me reconsider that pattern too, although I have looked at it before, I just always end up saying "no" at the last minute.

    Andy your eyelet edge tank is still keeping me up at night thinking about sewing, even though I have decided that that particular piece of eyelet is not high on my "MUST SEW NOW" list, or at least that several other pieces are ahead of it, but I think it does have shelf life. Or at least I hope so. Someday I still want to grow up to be as fashionable as you.'

  3. How does Kashi just *know* what to show you? I found I couldn't say no to him. But, I'm going to sew it down before I go back. I swear! Then it will be me who tempts you with more fabric shopping! And thanks on the eyelet dress!

  4. gee, i dunno carolyn -- going to see kashi, and then not buying anything? is that legal? you ARE obligated to show your friend a good time, what's an additional 20 or 30 yards? :)

    have FUN!

  5. I got lost in the links!!! LOL

  6. Thanks for the links... I love the carwash skirt. Thanks for posting.. I'm definitely feeling sew inspirational. I love the pants I made.. but learned something very valuable.. no your

  7. thanks for the new bookmark! Kathryn's creations are very beautiful & inspirational.

  8. oh Carolyn, just don't let Kashi show you that geometric knit number that Cidell has pictured on her website...
