Taking a break! July 18 2015, 0 Comments

After a dedicated week of vicious sewing/quilting - I need a break!  Sometimes you just need to walk away from what you love to do and re-energize. Today is that day - it is hot outside!  The weather man says the heat index will be triple digits - yikes!  This makes for a good day to play inside, in my 'cool' studio where I will indulge in my first love of sewing - clothing!  

I took a trip to JoAnn's Fabrics with one of those coupons.  Now, being a small business owner, I am a huge supporter of local shops, but what I 'needed' were some new clothing patterns and I indulged in TWELVE at less than $2 each - that's worth the trip - and our shops don't carry Simplicity/Vogue/Butterick/McCalls/NewLook ~ yes, justifying my guilt for shopping in a big box store.  

So, pattern pieces are cut, fabrics are pre-washed and with a hot cup of coffee in hand, off I go to lose myself in the world of 5/8" seams, zippers, interfacing and facings - 'sew exciting'... see ya later (aren't those buttons cute!)
