It's Good to be Back....

Phew. Ten whole days without a computer.  I suppose I can't complain too much; I was able to surf the web & read blogs on my phone, but not being able to post or interact left me feeling out of touch. :) On the other hand, there were some perks. :)

I have so much to talk about! A few new notions, some new finished projects (three, in fact), and of course, the ever constant stream of plans & new items on the "to sew" list.

July is going to be a busy month! We have our annual 3 day convention & I'd like to carry on the traditoin of making Laila & Shawn a coordinating dress & tie (respectively, of course). I just ordered fabric for the dress & a slew of swatches to find the perfect silky coordinate. I'm also going to need to make another suit or 2 for Shawn.  All his pants are quickly becoming too short.  Since I was planing on sewing for them anyway, I think I'll hold off until July 1 to start & enter some of my creations in the Sewing for Children contest on PR.

Also, Sarah Veblen is offering a class (again, at PR) on fitting & altering skirts. I'm seriously considering taking this class. I think it would be a great experience.

Well. That's it for now. I just wanted to peek my head in & say hi!

  1. Just found your blog through 'myfirstbambina' - happy to meet you :) I live in Upstate NY and your phrase of 3 day convention caught my eye - we have our convention the last weekend of July in Amherst, MA - I am a mom to four and when my girls were younger I made all their dresses for the assemblies and conventions and meetings and made by boys their shorts/vests and ties. My two girls are now 26 and 21 and boys are 15 and 14 .Only my 21 yr old still appreciates my sewing a dress or two for her - she is even starting to make her own as she just passed her boards for RN and has fabric she purchased to make scrubs. I made one already , she can do the other one - waiting for her to come over for a sew day :)
