Nothing new is going on in my sewing world, at least as far making something is concerned. I think I work best when I have a deadline LOL. I may not have sewn anything but I have done a LOT of fashion pattern and fabric shopping. Since we last talked I went to Paducah, KY for the annual AQS trip. I really didn't purchase many quilting items there but I certainly made up for it once I got home. Thanks to http://www.mimigstyle.com/ I have sooooo many clothes I want to try and make. I never thought that I would delve in fashion sewing but I think all types of sewing eventually spill over into each other. I have ordered lots of fabric but I think my fear of messing up has halted my surge into fashion sewing. However, I have started one top that I am hoping will not be a dud. I plan on getting the final stitching and hems completed before this weekend. I hope there will be a finished and wearable top somewhere in the near future. Here is the inspiration piece from http://thenaturalfashionista.com/as well as the pattern and my attempted product. Thanks for stopping by and have a sew wonderful day!

I can't believe a whole month has gone by and I have not blogged anything. I have somehow lost my sewing mojo and then found it again in time to finish that little baby quilt. I can honestly say that I fall in love with each project. This little baby quilt (gotta start coming up with names for my projects) has really been fun. There were a few bumps along the way but all ended up well. The next time I mark a project for quilting, I'll make sure to test the product on scrap fabric first (duh). I used a yellow chalk liner and had really hard timing getting that darn chalk off. All ended well but I was really scared it would not come out of that white fabric. I even made a bag to store the quilt in and remembered to make a quilt label before I was finished with the entire quilt. Enjoy and thanks for taking a peek into my small world, Happy quilting!
