CAN'T BELIEVE IT! Another one (almost) like the other one!

I had this bad boy in DRAFT since 12/31/16. Another reversible hat. Will try my hand at more later this month!! :-) 

So about 3 weeks ago, we did one and posted on IG (@wannasew2). Did another one this weekend. Made it a little one, my turn. You like? :-)

Sewing for charity!

Hello! We completed a sewing project: a little skirt and denim blouse for a project called Sewing4Haiti.

Reversible toddler's fleece hat.

Whipped this up last night using a video tut from the Crafty Gemini's channel. It will be for my 2 year old nephew! :-). I'll post another pic with him in it next time he comes around!

Lots of fun and inspiration had!

ASG Annual luncheon, fashion show, stash sale: you name it, we had it. Over the past year, our chapter made duffel bags for children in the foster care system. PICTURE HEAVY!
 Lookie look what I won! (I'll open it later!)
 Prize table!
 I won again! Ticket was underneath chair so I got to take home the centerpiece!
 Lovely quilt!
 Apron with places of travel plus airline tickets! How unique!
 Three outfits! Talk about a great use of fabric!

I thought I was going to get one more sew on during National Sewing Month. Time slipped by and other things took priority. :-). Wish I had Columbus Day off, but we no longer get that one off. Too tired to show you the fabric. I'll post it when I'm able to get to it. See you soon! :-)

We doubled-down!

Got them done! Please ignore the terry cloth recants. I cleaned them off -just too lazy to take another pic. These were fun and I'm sure I'll be doing more soon! (PS: I closed the openings and got the terry cloth off after taking the pic).

This just hit: This is HORRIBLE

I was (and still will) going to post when I went to my feed and saw Peter's recent post: Paron's in NYC going out of business!

This is so sad:

Boy, I had no idea!

I had no idea (actually lost track) that it's been over 2 months since I last blog. Really need to get some sewing in. So many distractions even with the best of planning. Here's to hoping to get some in by the end of the this month! :-)

Almost forgot I even had a blog!

Just a quick hello and Happy Memorial Day (getting it in early in case I get busy). I hope you're able to get some sewing, R&R, and get some stuff done!

The Essential A-Line Review

Finally! Thanks for your patience. I have placed the link in the "Book Review" tab. See you soon!

Ya'll probably know


OK..I'm a little late (like 5 days, maybe?). Hancock's nationwide is closing. No biggie and not too surprised. Hoping not to sound cynical, but those that have been with me for a minute will remember my Spring 2012 post titled "This is terrible"(you can search it) when my neighborhood Hancock's closed.

It only takes one to create a ripple affect...sometimes. Some people in social media are snagging 80% sales...not so in the DVM. I guess they're holding out! Until next time, JC. (book review coming this weekend)

Coming soon: The Essential A-Line

Stay tuned for a detailed review!


My model man!

Got lil man to finally pose for me--although he wasn't quite cooperating! I enjoyed making these and may do a pair before the weekend is out!

Mission accomplished!

We did it! I had to totally find another PDF because the one I had...well, after I kept watching the video on how to piece the PDF pattern pieces together, it didn't work so I found one I could understand!  These will be for my baby nephew! May even do another pair since I have a long weekend.


Had to shift gears just slightly :-)

Repeat after me....!

This is (or will be) a long weekend for some. It will (for some) be a COLD weekend. I've already got something cut, now I need to take it to the next level!--which will be the next post. Until then, ta ta! :-)

Let it Snow! EDITED

Now sewing related, but I wanted to play with periscope. We had an early closing from work due to the snow that's now here & expected all weekend. So here's to my video. I'm still learning how to "scope." :-) NOTE: I'm not sure if the video below will play as I added it from blogger.

Here's the link from my you tube channel:
