Back on the wagon..

Ya!  Today I spent some time in my sewing room.  There has been so much going on work wise and other wise...mostly good but just busy. It's truly been far too long and I've been missing it, but just didn't have the MOJO.  I hope I still have readers out there, I've been so neglectful but will be sewing more regular now. Well, it took a little de-cluttering, reorganizing and straightening. I had a few things left cut and ready to sew, only thing is I had to make a decision if I wanted to sew them all.  A couple of the items went in the trash, believe me it's worth it to start over sometime especially on these items. However, back to what I did finish.  So, I had a pair of pants that I drafted using "Sure-fit Designs" kit by Glenda Sparling  Here's a picture of the pants I finished today. I got her kit a long time ago and made a pair of pants quite a while ago so I knew it would be worth it to finish these.
I'll show a picture of me with them on when I make a top to go with them. I used the rest of the day to do some testing doing a video while I sew, hopefully I'll have some videos coming up soon, I've still got to get that down at least so you can tell what I'm doing on the video.  I also took some time to plan what I wanted to spend time working on for the rest of this long weekend.  So, I hope to be back with more soon and see if I can stay on the wagon this time.

Hope you all have a great remainder of the weekend doing what ever you love.

Happy sewing!!

It's My Blogoversary!

OMG, I almost missed my own Blogoversary, I started this blog 6 years ago to share my love of sewing.  However, lately I've strayed from sewing and ventured in exploring other forms of crafting.  But, I've been trying to get my sewing MOJO back, I actually miss sewing but have lacked the oomph I've needed to get back at it.  So, I made an SOS call to one of my sewing friends who has inspired me to get back into the game and I also joined a sewing Meet-Up to get my juices flowing again, (I'll tell you more about that later).  So, tomorrow is Saturday and I will be spending some time in my sewing room getting my self organized and get started on some of my unfinished projects from months ago.  So stay tuned I'll have pictures & maybe a video to share soon.

Happy Sewing!

I'm still here...

First let me say that my thoughts and prayers are going out to everyone affected by the storm Sandy along the east coast.  My heart really goes out to New Jersey & New York I pray for a quick recovery from this disaster.  I've talked to a few friends & family along the coast and over all everyone is safe, some without power but safe.  Yes, I still here alive and well, the Washington, DC area got hit but nothing like the east coast. 
I know it seems that I've deserted my blog but I haven't really, I actually been missing the connections, (I know it's my fault).  However lately I just haven't had a bit of sewing Mojo.  Where it went I don't know.  There is a light at the end of this tunnel though, thanks to talking with a wonderful friend who reached out and due to the recent storm Sandy we touched base tonight just to see how each other was doing.  My friend Alethia at Kassmin's Creations have sparked a bit of motivation in me.  I've actually been doing other crafts lately and she encouraged me to post about it here, so I will.  I've been doing paper crafting and loving it.  Somehow it's been so relaxing and easier to share with my non-sewing friends. Here's just a peek at what I've been up to other than sewing...
Birthday Card for Friend

Birthday Card for a friend's mother
Another birthday card for a friend.
A card for a friend who had breast cancer




 I'll post more from time to time but I really think my mojo might be finding it's way back thanks to my talk with Alethia.   If you'd like to follow my paper crafting blog click this link...
So, back to sewing, I recently bought over $100 worth of fabric thinking it would spark my mojo but it didn't.  The spark I needed was that little chat with Alethia, some laughs and knowing that all is well was just the kick I needed.  Thanks for the kick Alethia!!  LOL!

Happy crafting,

OMG, I've Been MIA.....

Yes, I've been a really bad blogger and sewer lately.  I haven't been sewing, I've been so busy lately.  I'm hoping to get something done sewing wise soon.  I have a few things cut out and ready to sew, so I think I'll start with these UFO's.  I even have another blogoversary coming up soon, so I've got to do something to celebrate that and get myself in gear.  So, stay tuned...don't give up on me.
More later.....


Happy Sewing!!
