- 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!

Nothing new, life has been in the way of sewing much, the quilt is being pieced in sections. I have Vogue 8511 in mind for an upcoming benefit we are planning on attending in purple ponte de roma knit. I really like that pattern and I couldn't find a bad review of it, the pieces for the princess bodice virtually match the Simplicity 2473 I made two versions of last year, so I think it will work fine for me. Being ponte, I will still use a zipper, but the hems can be machine made and seam finishes simple, speeding up the construction. I also have a vintage jumper for little girl on the ironing board already cut out, waiting on me and some time. Please let me get some soon :)
