I'm in big trouble



I need a clone of myself for this weekend. Remember my post outlining the things we had to do for the Family Room? Well, things are not going as planned. At work, we started seeing issues in our Production system that we hadn't seen in Test. We had just updated the system in Production on Monday. For those who don't speak Software, Production is basically a live system that actual users use for conducting Business. It is absolutely critical (for most systems) to be up and running or they lose money/customers. Our client is a Hospital in Florida, and this system is supposed to be a pilot for the rest of the hospital. Basically, after we do this successfully, my company will get a lot more work from them.
So after we start seeing issues, I had to work on Wednesday night to resolve them. DH had Production work of his own to do. So no painting happened that day. I could care less about that. He did one coat on Thursday. That same night, his aunt (massi) who lives in New York called to say they'll be in the area this weekend. So it was obligatory to have them over. They're coming for Sunday lunch. Friday night he had Production issues again and I was too tired to paint the second coat by myself. Obviously, this needs to be done today or else we'll have no place to seat them! Crap!

I still have something to do for a couple of hours in the Test system, but thankfully the that system is DOWN! Yay! Normally, I would not be happy about this, but if I have to do that too, I need that clone. Second coat is almost done at this time, just some touch ups left. Once it dries, we need to attach the sheer rods, and then hang the sheers and main curtains. Curtain rods are already attached so no worries there.

This is way too much stress for one weekend alone. Not to forget, I have to scrub the bathrooms and kitchen, prepare a good lunch and come up with some snacks by tomorrow. You know how it is when in-laws are visiting. Wish me luck!

Itch to Stitch blog tour

Itch to Stitch blog tour Day 2

Sewing community is such a vast space spanning multiple continents and what brings everyone together is their love for sewing. When someone in this community is hurting, sewists all over the world come together to make it better. Our much loved designer, Kennis Wong - owner of Itch to Stitch Designs, was robbed a couple of weeks ago leaving her with no way to run her business. This blog tour is promoting Itch to Stitch patterns to make up for some of the monetary loss so she can be back on her feet and produce top notch quality patterns again!

I picked up the Newport top in the recent sale and wanted to make a nice top for this blog tour. I'm also really feeling the velvets this time of the year. Stylish Fabrics is one of the sponsors of this tour and I picked up mauve velvet and charcoal ponte to make my outfit.



The pinky mauve color is probably my all time favorite color for nail paint but I rarely wear clothes in this color. I'm not entirely s…

Mimi G Jeans in Simpli by Ti Stretch Denim

Mimi G Jeans in Simpli by Ti Stretch Denim
This is my most favorite jeans I have made thus far! It is Simplicity 8222 pattern by designer Mimi G. It comes with a quilted bomber jacket pattern as well that I will make some day.  What makes this my favorite is the stretch denim I used by Simpli by Ti! The denim has 25% horizontal stretch and is mid weight. It is very comfortable to wear. The color is much more vibrant in person than is on the Simpli by Ti sample photo!  The color in my photos is an accurate representation. It is the true denim color. 

I like the fit of this pair. I achieved the fit by first making all the length adjustments I need. I'm only 5' tall so I needed to take out length from the inseam and also crotch depth. The jeans are high rise and hips are drafted to fit 9" below the waist. I removed .5". I had made this pattern before and the rise is too long on that pair. One of the biggest changes I made to the pattern was to make an elastic waistband…

Sew what do I wear - Professional Edition

This is my first blog tour!! I'm so excited to be a part of the Patterns for Pirates/Made for Mermaids Sew what do I wear - Professional Edition blog tour!

If you're read this blog ever before, you know I love wearing handmade items to work. Ever since I started sewing, my ultimate goal and dream was to make a fantastic work wardrobe that would fit well, look nice, and be well received! I believe I am well on my way. 75% of what I wear to work these days is handmade. I'm still working on getting the fit dialed in just right but each garment is an opportunity to improve.


SOS Pants and Favorite Tee have been staples of my work wardrobe. If you have seen my Spring/Summer Sudoku you know that already :-) I made a couple of nicer additions for this blog tour. I wanted something a little special that would still work in a daytime work environment but elevate my looks a bit more.


I'd been wanting to do a choker neck Tee but didn't want a whole new pattern for it so I hacke…
