Hey, I know it’s been a bit since I told you all about my new sewing toys, but I have been using them! Seriously. These pictures are not the best, but they are what I have at the moment. The weather should be improving soon, so I hope to get pictures of me actually in […]

A Little Sewing

in Embroidery, sewing

As you all know, I do some sewing from time to time. Well, I decided to invest in a new (to me) machine. I looked around and found a Viking Designer SE LE for a little more than the price of a new standard Viking machine. So what does this kind of expensive new machine […]

Well, I didn’t want to leave you all hanging with the fun stuff that came in the mail for me. Today we will focus on more fabric. I’ve definitely started a fabric stash! Metro Textile Group Metro was actually the first place we went while in NY. We visited Kashi and I found some great […]

It’s Christmas!

The Boy says it’s more like Chanukah since the UPS/FedEx/USPS guys are bringing me stuff every day! Either way, it’s an exciting week (not so excited for when the credit card bill arrives, though)! I have some items I bought before the NYC Pattern Review shopping extravaganza, so those items are thrown into the mix […]

Sigh. I have a lot of projects that I am working on and not enough time in the day. I decided to actually take a little inventory about things I am knitting and came up with this list: Cable baby Sweater – knitting is done. Need to sew on the snap band I made. Lazy! […]

Like Robin, I am obsessed with Craftsy classes! I love that I can take a class on something that interests me and have access to it for-ev-er! Since I’ve been getting back into sewing and learning the world of fashion sewing, I have signed up for all the “advanced” sewing classes Craftsy has to offer. […]

Yeah, I did it…

…I spent a lot of money on two Diane von Furstenberg vintage patterns. I kind of fell in love with the idea that I could make my own DVF dresses. I’m not going to mention what I spent on them, but let’s say I’m not going to be cutting these patterns any time soon! If […]

Knitting is not my only craft du jour! I have been known to sew a bit, too. Well, friends, I’ve gotten back into it. I’m taking a class at Vogue Fabrics to get myself back into the groove. I also used a tiny part of my tax return and bought a serger. I. am. so. […]

I mentioned a couple times that I had some secret sewing project that I was working on as a gift. Well, now that I've given out my gifts for this Christmas (well, most of them), I can reveal was I was making. It's my first quilt! I decided to make my sister a quilt with […]

It’s here! It’s here!

in Amy Butler, Books, sewing

I just received my new Amy Butler's Little Stitches book! It's so damn cute!!! If they weren't such a commitment, I'd consider having a kiddie just to be able to make some of this stuff. Kind of like that Volkswagen commercial with Brooke Shields about people having babies to get minivans. But, I will settle […]
