Mid January projects

Hi Everyone

Almost Spring !

Well I am thinking warm thoughts as the sun is shining brightly and all is good in my world !

Just getting up with an attitude of ‘today will be a perfect day and all will go magnificently’ is my mantra. Focus on great things and great things will happen.

Leather sewing went well and here are a few pictures of the delicious lining I used which I found in my fabric cabinet. Enough for a dress to sew up as I complete the ensemble. We began with fitting muslins and continued with cutting and prepping the fabrics. I choose to sew up my lining first ( had to create one ) as my pattern did not call for lining and used it as my final fit. Leather was cut and now for a second session on sewing it up. Decisions about conventional seaming or lapped and topstitched finishes were discussed and the excitement continues.

The new Spring colours are Mint and Purple so I am thrilled to be ‘in’.

Gosh I love sewing fashion fun and challenges!

If you wish to join in the Embroidery Group is beginning this Friday Jan 23  1 pm as we use monograms or lettering on pillow cases or towels.

See you sewing soon and thanks for viewing my posts and adding comments.
