Coming up…

Now all my Christmas presents are done, I’m home free to sew more for myself! So coming up in the next few weeks you should find the following…

Completed

  • James’s birthday sweatshirt is finished and seeing as how his birthday is TODAY, he got to unwrap it this morning! Now it’s just waiting for its grand photoshoot…
  • The navy silk dress that gave me all the bias problems is now fixed and finished and awaiting a very chilly photoshoot…

Up next

Our Christmas tree is being delivered tomorrow (Sorry, Cidell, but it’s got to be an extravagant live pine for me!), and since it’ll take up the space I normally use to trace patterns, I had to really think ahead and trace off everything I think I’ll make this month now, or risk a face full of pine in the future (though thankfully BurdaStyle patterns are still open to my whims since they don’t require tracing!).

Oh, and does anyone else’s cat have an irresistible fascination with pattern paper? I can usually distract Bosco by wadding up the excess kraft paper scraps into balls for him to chase, but the paper gets a bit fragile if he’s been outside recently, as you can see here…

Perhaps I should just consider myself lucky that he’s only interested in the paper and not my big, angry, noisy machines with their gnashing needle teeth!
