It's been a long couple of weeks, and while I have done a bit of sewing, been just too tired to do much blogging. I've got a sweater to show you, Youngest Son's wool suiting vest, and a franken-version of the HotPatterns All Wrapped Up tank top. As soon as I can arrange a photo session I've have them up for your jolly amusement.
As for the scoopneck top, thanks to all of you who commented, and I think I've decided to keep a couple of them, but get rid of the rest. After all, eight versions of one pattern? Kinda silly and shows a lack of imagination, dontcha think? Of course, what I'm going to replace them with, I just don't know.
So to help me with my decision making I did hat every good fabric stasher does.
I went shopping.
Fabric.com is usually my go-to place for most fabrics, and they usually don't let me down. They've got lots of onion skin right now, and while I've never sewn it before and I generally don't wear polyester, I liked a couple of the prints so much that I thought I'd give 'em a try.
I'm not a pink person usually. But I like this print. that Victorian swirl thing always catches my eye.
And that's my order, hopefully arriving at the end of this week. I small order for me, only 9 yards all together. But since I'm not doing that much sewing, I can't really justify buying more fabric. The only reason I got these is that I really do need to replace those scoopneck tops that I've retired. Really.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
