Welt Pocket Success

You really can't tell by this picture but the welt pockets came out very nice. I don't know how much more I will get done, this jacket is taking forever but I haven't had that much sewing time lately and I won't get to sew tomorrow because it's my GS's birthday and he figured out that I usually show up with the big Grandma gift and make my exit so this year he told me that I couldn't leave until it was over, at least it's not at Chuck E Cheese.

This is IttyBitty--I named her that when she lived with us, you know how some kids will bring home stray animals, my DD has bought home more than one stray friend and they ended up living with me for over a year in both cases and now they're like my own DD's. IttyBitty ended up living with us her senior year through circumstances beyond her control. I'm very proud of her, she persevered and not only got her BA but went on to get a Master's degree, of course whenever she's in town she has to come "home" and you can see she's quite at home.

A St. Patrick's day pic, we dressed up at work.

Some people have no shame lol.

On to the notched collar, wish me luck.

That's a fab welt pocket, I've got to bite the bullet and try one soon.

I'm working on a pair of TNT pattern and I made two slant double welt pockets on the front. Now I'm thinking I want one on the back too. Had to stop and get ready for church. I'll make up my mind later. Yours looks great.

Looks like a fun bunch of people to work with !!!! What a lucky young girl to have a home to come to and someone like you to finish raising her and to encourage her. The pocket looks great.
