Something for Him, Something for Her
Sunday, May 30, 2010
The fabric was gifted to me by Ms. Peggy last year. This is my first time using the Dritz eyelet kit. It's a little unnerving putting holes in something you just spend an hour making but they came out okay, just remember to use a very small hole, you want it just large enough to get the eyelet through.
The garden is in and planted.

Ready to Plant
I have tomatoes, zucchini, red and yellow bell peppers, green beans and cilantro, I may go get a few more herbs.
If any gardening experts out there have any tips they will be welcome I need all the help I can get.
Wish me luck.

Coming Along Nicely
It's Simplicity 2926, view D, I added the piping from view A. All I have to do is add the skirt lining, zipper and hem it. I purchased a solid coordinating fabric to make a jacket since it's always freezing at work.
I've made a lot of progress on the Vogue shell, maybe just maybe I can finish it this weekend. It will look great with a skirt I made last year.
I use to work from home several days a week now I go into the office most days and it has been a huge sewing motivator, I have somewhere to wear my clothes.
Stay tuned to see what develops.

I hope she likes it
Luckily I'm pretty sure I have enough of this fabric for a do-over.
This should fulfill my unselfish sewing for the next few months.

No Sewing but a lot of Love
And this beauty from the world's greatest neighbor's.
After my sewing let down I moved to a different craft, I have swatched this tank top about 90 times, only a slight exaggeration, the 9 row lace pattern kept mocking me and my gauge was horribly off, after some serious Tanya math, I finally got my gauge worked out and completed the lace pattern, yipee! Hopefully I will finish this before Summer is over.
I hope everyone had a wonderful ratless Mother's Day.

I Really Missed My Kids
I really needed to sew this weekend, I've wanted to make this skirt for quite awhile and finally got around to it, it's my own vintage pattern, meaning I purchased it back in the 80's it's Butterick 5863. I made the jacket and top but never the skirt.
I have the blouse cut out and waiting, maybe I'll get to it before next weekend.
Now I'm off to see what everyone else has done with their weekend.
