...so this is an additional post and not my last one for twenty thirteen. In my travels through blogland this evening, I came upon two posts that I want to highly recommend.
The first one is from Beth the author of SunnyGal Studio Sewing. This one struck me because she writes about how precision sewing is an important component in achieving a good result. I know that I write alot about inspiration and fabric but believe me when I say if I didn't use a little precision sewing in my garments, they would not turn out so well. Plus Beth is one of the sewists that I aspire to sew like so I'm always reading along picking up tips so that some day I can sew on her level!
The second post I'm highlighting might seem like I'm patting myself on the back but I'm not. The reason that I'm recommending it is because I believe that Barbara, of Sewing on the Edge, was more eloquent than I was in my Photo Backdrop post...and because I love that she understood exactly what I was trying to say.
I know y'all probably know this already but I guess I'm slow. You can learn anything on YouTube. I spent some quality time there last night watching videos about my sewing machine (Janome 8900 QCP). I'm so thrilled that I did because I can now use my automatic needle threader better, fill a bobbin more evenly and know how and why I'm suppose to use the stylus that was included with my machine. I picked up a few more tips that once again emphasized to me how much more I have to learn about my sewing machine. Thank goodness for YouTube! *LOL*
Finally, I sewed today...all day. Here's a quick peek at the first top and the pants from my Crazy 8 Wardrobe plan.
...as always more later!
