August Roundup

During August, I got back to my sewing machine and boy did it feel good! My hip problems were in abeyance and my creativity was full bore. It felt so good to create.

This month I sewed my first swimsuit, and it was a Bombshell. I admitted to it bringing up body image issues, but the wonderful comments I got from such a supportive online sewing community made it totally worth posting. I didn’t respond to individual comments because I didn’t know what to say except “Thank You”, over and over again. So, to everyone that said something complimentary and supportive, thank you.

I also sewed a handsome cardigan for my handsome boyfriend, a silk maxi Anna dress, a white linen Victoria blazer,  and just squeaked in under the wire with a pair of Vivacious Jeans for the Sew Weekly Reunion sewalong. Adam’s being wearing and loving the cardigan and I’m rocking the pink jeans (while dreaming of wearing the silk Anna dress every day!).

I shared Sewing & Style interviews with the spunky Winnie of Scruffy Badger Time and the dashing Duane of Japanese Pattern Challenge.

I put together quick tutorials for revamping a t-shirt with floral applique and how to tie a hank of yarn in order to dye it.

Oh yeah, and I pieced a little red-and-white baby quilt top. I planned on waiting until I could visit my mom and use her longarm to quilt it, but I keep pulling it out of my sewing cupboard and staring at it, so I may not be able to wait that long!

  1. What a busy month! Your swimsuit and maxi look great — love the print on the maxi. I’m sure September will be just as productive!
