The Journey Begins !

Just shooting the breeze--brief video on fabric bargain hunting: THE JOURNEY BEGINS


On the horizons...

My sister gave me this fabric recently. She said it's silk and she was going to use it for curtains, but decided not to. And since she knows I'm slowly getting back into sewing, she graciously offered it to me. :-)

Part two coming at you!

We teased you a little with a collage of pictures from last week's successful DC Threads sewing lounge.

Here's some more fun. Participants had a choice of sewing one or two community projects that were being donated to neighborhood non profits

  A hungry sewer ain't a a happy sewer--hence some snacks!

5 minute skirt

Hi there! I love this skirt! First time trying this DIY pattern. Pulled this from The Angry Chicken Blog.


BTW: Those are NOT the scissors I use for fabric. Those are separate scissors. :-)
