Jump Starting my Mojo

Butterick 5251 out of Navy stretch knit from Hancock, the tank top is Vogue 1167, I have enough Vogue patterns that I'm sure I'll be using a lot of them in my upcoming projects. Navy like black doesn't photograph well but this came out really nice and was a quick and easy project just want I needed.

I finally wore Vogue 1250 to church today, you will have to excuse the pictures I'm trying to learn to use my tripod. I can't remember the jacket pattern but it's Vogue.

I'm not crazy about the dress it's a little short for my taste and for church, more suited for a night out.
Hopefully this will motivate my Fall sewing which has been non-existent. I hope everyone had a great weekend.

It Really Is Better To Give

Blogger buddies are the best. I have received such sincere thank you's for the Vogue patterns, this one was sent from Sheila and she made it herself, love it.

No sewing but a little knitting, my sister made my niece a scarf out of this yarn and gave me the rest of it to make some matching mitts, I think they came out great even though I ran out of yarn and had to use a different yarn on the second thumb. I'm so proud of my sister I taught her to knit when I went to California in June and she's doing great.

I also made another Star Crossed Slouchy Beret, a pair of mitts and I'm working on a scarf to go to a wonderful young lady that lives in the Windy City.

I haven't done any real sewing since I got back from California, which is almost 3 weeks, I really, really need to sew, hopefully I will get at least one of these made this weekend.

We have managed to squeeze in a little Halloween fun, Halloween Haunt at Kings Island we get out of there before it gets dark because that's when it gets really scary.

Thanks again to all my wonderful followers I look forward to seeing what you make with your Vogue patterns whatever it is I know it will be fabulous just like you.
