About Me

My photo
I am a Homemaker and Freight Broker (with my husband) who has a love of needle crafts, sewing, crochet, cross-stitch. I learned to sew in 2007, really love using vintage patterns (1940's, 50's, 60's) & and seeing how I can modernize them with fabric choices and trims). I need 25 hours in a day to get to everything I want to do!

Pattern Shopping

Don't you just love this one? The purple one is what I envision, maybe in purple or maybe in a coral linen. I received it today in the mail off ebay. At a 38B, seems to be ok on top, just need to add on the sides, CF and reduce darts to enlarge the waist. I bought 5 yds of lightweight preshrunk muslin today, I am muslining it as soon as I get a chance, use it for the lining if I use linen. I will underline it rather than face it. It is really a cute one.

I also have some 1940 ones on their way. I have been pattern surfing for bargains.

I will be inspired soon, no A/C in the house is a killer in Texas when you are used to it. It is on target to be fixed tomorrow. No A/C since Saturday evening :( The natives are restless... :0

No A/C?? Oh no!! I hope it all gets fixed Saturday! And I'm glad we're having a bit of a cool front.
