Recap


Ok you readers :-) I guess I should fess up what has been keeping me busy -

My sisters family visited us in September. This visit had been postponed because of me going to India for a month for work in June. So before she visited, we completely re-did the guest bedroom. This kept us busy through out August. I am really quite happy with the way this room has been done. Exactly what I wanted. There will be pictures, I promise.
They visited in mid-september and stayed till mid-october. We took them to Disney!! They have a 7yr old DD and it was just perfect. We were there for 6 days and had a great time. Went to Sea World, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios. The weather was good for the most part, the lines were short. It was a great time to visit. The only thing was I couldn't ride but still made the most of it. We also took them to visit Niagara Falls and New York city. Both long trips but they really enjoyed it.
After she went back we slowly got into a routine. The long trips completely tired me off. That combined with first trimester tiredness, I was just doing the bare minimum. The whole October-November is a blur. I developed a great deal of nausea and completely lost my appetite. Now I am in second tri and getting my energy back. So there is the news :-) From the moment of positive test, I've kept a pregnancy blog. You are welcome to read in your spare time.
There you have it. I will be back with pictures! Made a jewelry piece this weekend I'm very proud of. Can't get a good pic of it to show off the sparkle but I'll post what I have.

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…
