Third Times a Charm

This is the third time I've made these and just noticed that my pocket placement was way off on the other two. I doubt the 10 and 12 yr. old boys I'm making them for will notice but I have plenty of time to move the other one.

Yep, that's more of the brown stretch knit and I'm not done with it yet, keep reading.

I was getting a little bummed out sewing for others so I sneaked in this top and then got right back to my unselfish sewing. This is McCalls 6203, view D. I think I still have enough of this fabric for another project.

I made the hat a couple of weeks ago, it's the slouchy tuva beret, the yarn is Red Heart Shimmer.

I'm very happy with my weekend projects, I've made quite a dent in my Christmas PJs and it isn't even December yet.

Have a blessed week.

Let the Sewing Begin

One good thing about not going out of town for Thanksgiving, I did get started on my Christmas projects. This is simplicity 2318, one down three to go. The brown stretch knit trim is courtesy of Trudi.

This too is from the Trudi stash, I felt it only fitting to make her DD something from this super cute fleece. The pattern is McCalls 6225, super fast and easy.

I didn't have enough fabric for the belt so I used some of my left over purple fleece.

Another plus is that I went to both JoAnns and Hancock's black Friday sales. I got my free scissors from JoAnns and cleaned up on the fleece at Hancock's, it was on sale for 1.99/yd.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Blue Moon

It must have been because I went to a dance. Here's everybody, we had a ball. Mo wasn't really wearing that hat, it's her husband's, it was raining. I am cheesin' with my party hair.

The Delfonics will make you do this, Jackie's going to kill me.

This weekend was much more sedate. Feeding the ducks at the park.

And lastly a pic of me wearing the sweater. I received a lot of comments.

Not much sewing going on, still trying to jump start my Christmas pj marathon. We won't be going to Texas this year so hopefully I will get a lot done over Thanksgiving.

Thanks, Trudi

My dear shopaholic friend gave me a ton of fabric and I immediately cut into this sweater knit. The pattern is Butterick 5251. I've been looking for a sweater knit forever of course Trudi would find it and I have the perfect belt. I hope to get pics wearing it this week.

Yep, I was gifted all of that fabric I will be cranking out a lot from this mother load, there are some really nice pieces and a lot of it.
Thank God for good friends.
