Card update

Sew.

I have been so busy making cards that I have lost a nights sleep worrying about it 😥 BUT, as things turned out I managed to cancel the Table top sale fair and have managed to get onto the Christmas one instead. It is much better suited to me and has enable me to go crazy overdrive with the cards and I have a much more impressive stock. I had also managed to make 3 cushions at eh same time but my serger has decided to do the dirty on me and I have a messy seam. I put the cushion down, packed the serger away and went back to the cards. I really don’t need that negativity in my life right now and I would get more annoyed rather than finsh the cushion on a good note, so for now another 3 UFO’s!   You see the state of the crating space, although I clear up every few cards when I can’t find things. It is so hard to do them after work each day but I am managing about 3 and evening which I think is pretty good going, So until next time, probably after the event I shall leave you with a picture of my tidy(ish)…(WHO AM I KIDDING), work space

Skirt Making

August 11th 2015

Sew, I’m going bowling on Saturday with The Positive People Of Hill Valley Preservation Society, PPHV. And I need a skirt for the occasion.

Last year, I went to Secret Cinema, Hill Valley and hadthe most spectacular time and met some great people. This has led to a group of people getting together purely from meeting online, sorta online dating, without the dates, well except for the occasional meet up.

I went to Nandos with a few of them a few weeks ago to celebrate a New Job offer for one of the girls. She has just left Uni and has got a job as a Graphic Designer, well done Chickie!!!  Some LOVELY food was had. It has changed so much over recent years. They’ve added a new flavour, Lemon and Herb was always my favourite though.

So, back to my skirt. I bought the fabric some time ago (well, that is what I will tell the boy). I bought it on Saturday from Shepherds Bush. I was quite overwhelmed by the choice in some of the shops but found the PERFECT one, well 2, helped along, making a decision by Connie 🙂

Ill be using the blue one for my skirt and the black one for a dress

I’ll be using the blue one for my skirt and                       the black one for a dress

There are loads of posts on YouTube as to how to make a Circle Skirt so I won’t go into it here as I’m not going to make a video and I’ve already started to draft my pattern. Just waiting for the fabric to dry.

More on that tomorrow!!

August 16th 2015

Sew, as I was saying. I forgot, yet again, to wash my fabric as Soon as I walked in the door. Well I was hiding it from the boy so it made sense. Anyhow I finished the skirt…after a small hitch, trying to re thread my overlocker, which I had not done before. I have had my GORGEOUS overlocker for 3 months now and this would be the first time that I was using it.  So that was challenging,  running out of bobbin thread:don’t you hate it when that happens and thus messing up my hem. I finally finished with about an hour to spare before I had to leave. I’m silly and didn’t take a picture with it on me so will add a picture tomorrow .
