Last week!…

This is my last week of the semester! Another school semester done…ONE MORE TO GO! Whooo hooo!

It seems like life just gets busier as I get older. Isn’t it supposed to be the opposite? That as we age, that things are supposed to get more chill??

What I need right now!!! One for me, one for John!

Everyone out there needs a little of this!

This coming year shows no sign of slowing down for me either. My entire family will have a lot on our plates to deal with in the near future here. I am predicting it will mellow out to an even flow of things come summer.

I will be done with a couple of skirts today. I have to stitch the waistbands by hand and put in hems. I am also cutting out a purple tweed skirt and sewing that together as well. This particular tweed is on the heavy side, so it will be interesting to see how the final skirt comes out. I got the idea for this particular skirt (and whole outfit) from the 10/2010 issue of BurdaStyle magazine…

I am trying to make multiple garments at a time, not only to reduce my fabric stash, but also so I get all the pretty things made so I can wear them! LOL

I am enjoying my new sewing machine. It works great. I like the way this one sounds! The other one I was using made an annoying sound, and when you have to listen to the noise a machine makes, and for hours at a time….you get the picture.

It’s time for me to get back to work. The sooner I get these projects done, the faster I can get the pictures posted. 🙂

I hope everyone is having a great holiday season thus far.
Christmas is in just a few days!!
Until next post,
Amu
