The Need For Speed

I had it and now I’ve got it! Today my loving husband accompanied me 155 miles (one way) to pick up this gem for the bargain price of $200, a tank of gas, and a whole lot of muscle (to hike it up to the attic/sewing sanctuary). Consew 7360R – 5500 SPM – oh, yah!!!




Zoom. Zoom.

Sewing Drought

Usually when I hear the comment, “You sew? I have this pair of pants that need to be altered…”, my response is something like, “If my pants don’t fit, I make a new pair of pants.” I hate repairs or alterations of any kind – hems, zippers, waistbands, mending. AND patches. So you’ll understand why I’m not that excited about this week’s sewing.

He runs, he falls, he puts holes in his pants.

I don’t really remember what the last garment was that I made, but Easter is coming and I know what I’ll be working on this weekend!

I’ve cut it out of a white cotton pique and at the time the Little Miss was exited and wanted a dress “just like the white one” on the envelope. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that there aren’t “a thousand stitches” on the inside that might force her to wear the 100% polyester chiffon hand-me-down hanging in her closet!

Just have to include this kid shot - it was mohawk afternoon at our house a couple of weeks ago. Yea I know, to you and me they may not look like a true mohawk - but it was close enough for a few "rock-n-roll" faces. Oh look, it's the100% polyester chiffon hand-me-down-better-not-be-Easter dress!
