I thought I'd pop in with a little update. Holy cow, did I forget how exhausting it is to have a 3 yr old in the house. Much props to all the moms with little ones in the house; I'm surprised you sew at all! Our company arrived Tuesday, a day early. Things have been.... nuts? It has been a transition and somewhat difficult.
I have not been able to do any tracing, adjusting, cutting, or sewing since they arrived. I am too afraid to bring pins and a rotary cutter out with those grabby hands around. So with zero sewing going on, this lady is stressed!! Tonight we had a much welcomed break - they are out visiting others until tomorrow night. (I think they will be with us 3ish weeks so wish me luck!)
I took advantage of this alone time! I washed 2 loads of fabric. From Left to Right: I adjusted and cut out a black knit, and a green/black chevron knit for an Ottobre top. I managed to get 3 pairs of underwear out of those scraps plus one more pair out of other blue scraps. I adjusted and cut out a blue/dark blue knit for a Lady Skater baby-doll top. And all of that has made me much happier. My sewing room is off limits to the small one so now that my stuff is ready to go I can lock myself in and have at it.
I also received my "fit for real people" book and have read it through twice. There is TONS of good information in this book. I've already used a few techniques. (Thanks Gail for the heads up on how great the book is)
So expect to see some fun makes from me soon and I hope you are sewing up a storm.
