I did NOT feel like sewing today...

Addie picked some fabrics for a dress many months ago. I managed to get them home and then promptly forgot about them. They remained in the abyss that is my fabric stash until today. Today Addie told me she wanted a new skirt.

Today I wanted to sit on the couch and veg after a busy day...

Today Addie's fabric popped into my head. Quickly I sketched out two skirt designs that I wanted to work up...for later.

Then I tried to sit down and catch up on the Olympics. It didn't work. Couldn't get those sketches out of my head. So I got up. Arranged my "tools" and got to work. It didn't take long for me to get sketch #1 out of my head and onto a hanger.

A Sweet Project

I was asked to make party favors for the baby shower of a sweet friend, by another sweet friend. Got that? A lot of sweetness going on here. Unfortunately, this project is TOP SECRET, okay maybe just SECRET. Look, I even took the name off of the invite. Serious. I just love fabric shopping and couldn't wait to share what I found with you! I'll post the finished project in a couple of weeks.

I found a pattern off of the internet (it is basically a single stitch with an open lace pattern on each end) and whipped out a few in a couple of hours. Here is one hard at work:
