Alphabet Soup



Received my letter from Erin What a perfect letter! M.

Comment to this message and I will assign you a letter of the alphabet. Then, post a list of 10 words that begin with this letter and what they mean to you.

1.Mehul

No need to explain this. He means everything to me. I'll write what I read in someone's LO, My life began when your's started.

2.Mom

Love being a mom. And, love *my* mom. Some things you don't understand, until you experience them yourself. I have more respect for my mom than I ever did before.

3.Married

I don't know what I did when I was single. It seems like I've been married forever, and yet, it seems we just got married. I'm still crazy about him!

4.Madhuri Dixit

Ok. I remember now what I did when I was single. LOL! Sene and I were HUGE fans. I still love her and re-watch her movies all the time! I'll not go into the craziness we did over her, but we were huge fans :)

5.Masala Lays

It's a good thing we don't get such a thing in the US. Really good thing. It is also the first thing I buy at the Delhi Airport as soon as I land.

6.Milk Chocolate

I can't stand bitter chocolate. Milk Chocolate for me, please! And, no nuts. Nuts have no business being in chocolate.

7.Maitreyi

My college. Wonderful memories surrounding it. Wonder how big the Cyprus trees in the front yard must have gotten. Hmmm. I usually drive by (rather, have someone drive me by because I don't drive in Delhi) the college every time I go back there.

8.Mutter Paneer

I make a mean Mutter Paneer curry. Try it sometime. You *will not* forget it. (It is green peas and Indian cottage cheese curry).

9.Moment

I live in the moment. You can count on me for coming up with a plan and carry it out in a moment. Sometimes, not so well thought out, but I'm working on that. LOL!

10.Mix 107.3

My local radio station. The best mix of everything. So, I'm not a huge English songs fan, but they are growing on me, thanks to this radio station that I listen to while I drive.

I am such a foodie. Three out of ten items here are food :o Oops.

Those are my M things. Comment and I will assign you a letter. I will have Mehul pick it out for you. Thanks to Erin for assigning me the letter.

Sene's letter: F

Working on my shorts muslin

I'm working on my shorts muslin for the Wardrobe contest. The pattern I have selected is something that has been in my stash for a while. I never even took it out of the envelope because I was afraid of what I call 'smile wrinkles'. 


They are the wrinkles that form in the front and back crotch areas indicating there is a problem somewhere. So far, I thought my full tummy was a problem and it was not suited for a cute pattern like this, meaning I shouldn't wear cute shorts. WRONG! I have always noticed my RTW shorts ride up in the back, the side seams swing backwards giving a 'duck butt' kind of appearance. It happens to skirts as well but not to that degree. Also, my shorts inseams tend to 'walk upwards' when I move around. 
I have been working on resolving the wrinkling problem since the beginning of January. Remember, this is the Year of the Pant for me? I want well fitting pants so I've been at it pretty much any chance I get. Here I'm showi…

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…
