I'm more than thrilled that I have 10 days off from my day job! When I look back to 2020 and I was recovering from surgery, I feel so blessed that I'm doing well now and able to indulge in my passion.
A few things before I head in...
My Cut Pile ~
I've made a cut pile. I know the contentious cut pile - LOL! - but this is how I sew best lately. I'm aiming to make 4-5 items out of the pile.
A New PDF Pattern Source ~
Y'all know I hate PDF Patterns for two reasons - one the cutting and taping. Why??? Second - I always felt like printing the patterns professionally made the PDFs even more expensive. But I've been coming around for EXTRA special patterns. Please don't think I've gone over to the dark side but every once in awhile I see something on the interwebs that entices me.
So my friend Laquana has started printing PDF patterns for the masses. Y'all when I tell you this is too easy, please believe me. The things that challenged me about PDF Plotting was downloading the "right" file, telling them the number of pages and then finding out that the shipping cost more than the printing. Again Why???
With Laquana you simply send the file and she prints it. No need to tell her a page count. She also prints instructions for just 99 cents. Even the mailing is cheaper than PDF Plotting. Now please note that Laquana is a US based printing company only!
I took some pictures of the presentation so you can see how it comes...
Next on my cutting table ~
I've started working on my first project from the cut pile. A shirt of course! LOL! I'm using a border print from Mood Fabrics and have totally enjoyed the process of constructing it so far. It's nice to see that the prep and cutting have been successful.
This will be my last post before my "End of Year" round up post because I'm enjoying my time sewing. There will be project specific posts in the New Year!
...as always more later!
