Weekend Plans



Tomorrow morning some friends are dropping by to look at the available plots in our community. They can't get over the fact that how big the house is, specially the kitchen/Family Room area. They have only been looking for 1 month and after seeing our house, they are practically ready to move in. LOL!

We are going to get some furniture this weekend. We bought most of our furniture when we moved to our first house. Everything is still pretty new, and we got nice things that would last a while. We have to get some barstools and a nightstand.

This is our Master Bedroom collection. The photo is from the store's website, not our room. It shows all the things we got - Queen Bed, NightStand, Dresser & Mirror, TV Armoire.



However, we only got 1 nightstand because that's all that would fit in the MBR at the time. Now, we have a bigger MBR and a sitting room attached to it. We've moved the Armoire into the sitting room. So, we're getting the other nightstand. Now, the problem is what to do to Mehul's crib? He sleeps in the crib by my side and hops over early morning for snuggles. I don't want that to stop! I think we'll get the nightstand and assemble and put it someplace else. I am afraid of waiting too long and then not having it available anymore.

BTW, the paint color I've chosen for the MBR is pretty similar to this one. Maybe a touch darker. I didn't realize it, but I was probably going by this picture I had seen more than 2 years ago when we first researched for the furniture! Ack! I really like the color, though. We had done it in the Library in the Townhouse. I do have pictures of the library somewhere. Let me see if I can find it. I had prepared a flyer (with many photos) for the ad for sale/renting of the townhouse. DH and I feel we got a great response for our townhouse, because the ad was really good LOL. People really want to look at photos before they go to see the house.

Yay. Found it. The paint is called Woven Mystery. Pretty sure it's American Tradition paint. Doesn't that Library look great? For the record, I painted the entire room with very little help from DH. I did it over the last winter when I was staying home. Little did I know we'd be leaving that place so soon. *sob*


The new house looks very bare, which is why I'm not sharing many photos. I have to personalize it. Paint, Decorate, and Accessorise. It will take time before this house feels like 'Home'. It took us about 1.5 years to decorate the other house. I really enjoy the process of planning and researching it. So, I'm not in any hurry :-)

Last night's Layout. I can't believe I hadn't scrapped this photo. I have many beautiful photos from this particular day. My most favorite one is this.

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…
