HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
Sunday, October 4, 2009
I haven't been able to sew lately though I think about if often, however it's been really nice to browse your blogs and see the beautiful creations that every one's been making. I will be getting back on the wagon very soon. I'm trying to get my sewing room organized, and begin some plans for getting something done. I really need some new fall clothes so, hopefully my next post will have some pictures of my upcoming plans & projects.

It's always a nice surprise to receive such an award from my sister bloggers. This time I would like to pass this "One Lovely Blog Award" on to any of the talented sewers out there that stop by my blog and take the time to share their sewing adventures with everyone through blogging. It's hard sometimes because I don't want to leave out anyone and each of you are talented in your own rite and have "One Lovely Blog". So, feel free to accept this award and display it on your own blog and share with others! ENJOY!
This is an Olfa Rotary Cutter with an adjustable width arm screwed on. It's perfect since you can just put the arm where you want the seam allowance to be. No double tracing needed. This is among my favorite notions. I did a search to see it they still made them but I wasn't able to find one, but if you find one it's worth getting. I have the double tracing wheel also but this is my first preference.

until I wore it for a little whileActually only a few minutes and it began to look like I slept in it. Well, being in such a hurry to sew it I didn't think through the things I should have done to make it more wearable. I should have used a light knit interfacing on the whole tunic. I also could have done a FBA to make it fit a little better across my boobs. Yeah, always need to do that, how did I not this time. One solace to this whole thing is I didn't actually pick out this fabric and purchase it, it came from an order I placed from FabricMart.com , sometimes they run a special, with a purchase of a certain amount they'll give you a mystery bundle of fabric at no cost. This was in that mystery bundle from a purchase. When I saw it I knew right away what I wanted to make with it..but so much for that.

Next up, is this jacket (short view) and pants outfit: Butterick 6473, I think it is now Out of Print. The fabric has a slightly loose weave and I'm not sure of the content.I plan to make a top out of this fabric, the color here isn't very good, the dots are a little darker than they appear, they're more of a tan. I'm still deciding on the pattern I'll use for the top.BTW- I plan on sewing up a couple of those TNT patterns I mentioned in an earlier post, I've been working on the necessary alterations and will be working on a couple of those patterns for Spring as well. Hopefully I'll be posting pictures of my finished projects soon.

I didn't include this in my potential TNT list because I ordered it and had not received it when I was pulling the others together. I think this one will make a great TNT jacket pattern. So I traced it and it's now ready for alteration. With these jackets underway I'll work on a couple skirts, they will be a lot easier. Also I want to get a couple pant pattens done to see if I can come up with a great fitting pair of pants. It's slow going but I'm making some progress. I won't be making anything else for Winter. At the rate only Spring & Summer sewing is on my mind. Funny thing my fabric stash consists mostly of Winter weight fabrics especially for jackets, so I will have to seek out a few pieces of fabric for Spring & Summer sewing. I'll be firing up my machine soon and hope to have something to share soon.
