Is it over yet?



The week. It has been long and draining. Both due to him being away and work being double intensive. Mehul is being very good for the most part. He's at his best behavior with fewer meltdowns than I can remember since he turned 3. I have to ponder what is different now and why it is happening later.

I am doing two projects at the same time, I'm the developer for Project #1 and it is in the phase where everyone puts their code together and someone tries to run it for the first time. You can imagine what happens next. Everything is broken and I need to fix things as they find them. I like doing this usually.

For Project #2, I am the lead person and hence have most of the responsibility for writing the functional requirements, design, coordinate everyone else's input as needed and get it out the door to the client. I hate the coordinating part. Also, since it's going on alongwith the Project#1, it is getting hard to concentrate on the design when I'm having to fix issues ad-hoc.

I really need a getaway but none is in sight until my vacation in October. Thank goodness for the Labor day Holiday weekend. I'm going to sit on my bum and not do anything.

Anyhow, Jo made my day today by giving me a Blog award.

It is amazing to me that someone likes what I write. I try not to be very whiny but sometimes I need it. Like today.

Here are the rules:

1. The winner can put the logo on their Blog.
2. Link the person you received your award from.
3. Nominate at least 7 other Blogs.
4. Put the links to those Blogs on yours.
5. Leave a message on the Blogs of those you've nominated.

So, I nominate -
Susan's Afford Your Passions for the country needlework projects I (suddenly) like.
Teresa's Artistic License for it's great to look inside the mind (blog) of such a great artist!
Buddhini's Bright & Gold for the colorful life she lives and shares.
Buff Mama Melissa's for the hilarious posts.
Tresa's Reese Dixon for she's one of the most creative person I've seen online.

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…
