Don't be Scared but be Careful

This jacket is coming along very well and I'm am learning to be patient, something I definitely need to work on. I finished the collar and sleeves and I'm very happy with both, I only had to rip the collar/facing out once, yipee! All I have to do is add the lining and the finishing touches, shoulder pads, buttons/buttonholes. I should be able to wrap this puppy up next weekend and next on the agenda will be some easy Springtime sewing.

















Here's the birthday boy, I can't believe he's 6 years old, seems like only yesterday he was small enough to fit in the cupboard and play with the pans. Time really does fly, Grandma's baby.


















A picture of me and IttyBitty awake, now you see why I call her IttyBitty she's so short.





I hope everybody had a great weekend, not much cooking. I did bake LJ a cake, his Mommy got him a SpongeBob cake, Grandma can't do SpongeBob but I bet mine taste better lol.

Your jacket and the pockets look great. Thanks for the encouragement, I'm going to do to practice runs on the welt tomorrow - ran out of time today. If you find the other tutorial, let me know.
