I could get used to this...

This is what I worked on today...
                                                                   Vogue - 1224
I stayed home today to sew, no celebrating other than celebrating the fact that... I didn't want to do nuttin' but what I wanted to do today and that is just what I did.  I also wanted to do something quick and easy just to feel a sense of accomplishment. I've kept it a secret that I'm off work this week because I didn't want certain people to know, but I think I'm safe with letting it out now.  So, this week is mine all mine...ha, ha, ha  can you hear my laughter!!  It's a well deserved sewcation and I'm so excited.  I promise to have a review at the end of the week of all I get done including the dresses that I posted about in my last post.   I really like this dress and I think I want to make it a couple more times, one being all black.   I know this print isn't exactly summery so I want to get something really summery to make it again before this week is out, so I might have to go fabric shopping tomorrow just for something perfect.  So, I hope to get lots of sewing done this week and I'll report back later in the more later.

Happy Sewing!!


  1. Have fun with your sewcation! Love the print in your new dress.

  2. That's very pretty. I love staying home on holidays and sewing. It's so crowded everywhere, and much more fun in my sewing room.

  3. Enjoy your sewcation! I can't wait to see what you end up with...since this lovely dress is only the beginning. Also you will be amazed at how calm and centered you feel after a week of sewing!

  7. Lol. Funny post! I know exactly what you mean. I love this fabric and the fabric of your dress in your last post. They're looking CUTE already!

  8. It's been a great week, much more productive than I've been in quite some time. Thanks for the well wishes, it was so much fun. I have to remember to do this more often. I promise to have pictures of the garments on posted this weekend.

    Carolyn: You are so right I do feel centered and calm, it was very satisfying.
