I've been doing a lot of sewing lately. Much more sewing than blogging. Which is ok, since it gives me material to blog about when I don't feel like, well, sewing. That being said, I do have some things to talk about. But they are a little random.
My sewing space is on the move. We're building an attached garage & the door leading to it will be through the kitchen. Which means we'll need to move our kitchen table. To where my sewing space is. Which means I'm moving into the "office. The lighting is far inferior to that of the kitchen, but other than that, it seems to be working out well.
I'm taking the class "Break Your Serger Out of the Box" that is being offered at Pattern Review. If you've seen any of my projects, you know that my serger has indeed been set free from the box, and that I can & do use it. But this class is going to show me how to utalize it better. Gone are the days (I hope!) where I spend more time figuring out tension than sewing. :)
I love my labels. Espcially the Dance Pants ones for the kids. But I'm planning on making something for my sister (she doesn't know what yet-so neither shall you) and I'd love ot have a custom label that matches the fabric scheme. And I keep falling in love with different designs that I come up with. So I'm exploring ways to make them myself. Stay tuned. :)
With the release of Colette Pattern's Ginger (A-line skirt) I'm seeing lots of talk of skirts. Specifically A-line skirts. Apparently they are the ideal project for a beginner. So, I'm wondering, why haven't I made one?? I've set out to do so. In fact, my next few projects will include both an A-line skirt as well as a floral circle skirt. I'm excited.
