Sewing Side Saddle:
We have a Juki Machine up in the store for those who wish to try one out or purchase, Come by and try one out! I'm just today putting in the newest QVP 2200 MINI which is the current Straight stitch machine.
But, while I was working in the store Saturday, I sat down to sew a few quick seams. BAM! My knees, I realized quickly, do not fit under the desk!
This is not the first time this has happened to me... (Reminds me fondly of teaching in Japan!with giggles all around. )
My assistants come in and say, "Well we fit just fine!"
Yes, I am a bit long-leggedy.
I was finishing up some QUILT MARKET PREP for my next new line coming out in January. I can't show you the whole thing yet, But I can say the back looks lovely! Love those seams all pressed own and flat!
I also made myself a new skirt for Fall Quilt Market, using my Black and White Manor Stripe fabric ( in my webshop and store) and some Black Solid from Marcus fabrics!
(HEY! DID YOU NOTICE I HAVE MARCUS SOLIDS IN MY SHOP NOW? $5 a yard!!)
Now before you start asking me for a pattern, know this...
I don't use patterns for clothing...
I learned very young to make clothing to fit myself, and I make it up as I go... So, I'm afraid, no pattern.
I'm pretty thrilled with this skirt, I think it is very "ME."
QUESTION to you & encouraging COMMENTS please:
I've been kicking around, if you have noticed or not, I've been copying my posts and posting over at the blog platform at my website... Having had this blog since 2008, I'm nervous about switching over to the website blog... Will I lose all of you? Can you all start popping over there? Maybe if I continue to post here and there, and keep telling you to switch to "over there" I'll keep you all following along? At this point in my career, I feel it's important to have all the info in one place.
This blog would stay as it is, but I would only switch to posting over there going forward...
Will you stick with me?
