September Roundup

This September was one of the best months I have had in a very long time. I try not to dwell on it here, since this is my happy place, but I’ve been really unhappy in graduate school for a very long time. And an end is now in sight. I don’t have a graduation date yet, but I do have a draft of my paper in the hands of collaborators, almost ready to submit for publication! Add to that a phenomenal time at Sewing Summit, some very exciting bits of news toward my dream of starting SeamstressErin Designs after graduating, and you get one happy Erin, in a way that I haven’t felt in a long time. September was good to me.

1976 style vintage outfit


In September, I sewed 4 items for the Fall for Cotton Sewalongpants, a skirt, a camisole top, and a jacket. I also sewed a pile of baby booties.

Sylvi Swater Bawck

I got a couple different knitting projects done – a baby sweater for my very-soon-to-be-here nephew, and a Silvi sweater for myself. Both were quite satisfying to have done as Burke’s sweater was my third draft of the pattern and, although I was only working on it for a couple months, a knee length heavily cabled duster feels like quite a knitting accomplishment!

I also got almost caught up with my 2012 Craftsy Block of the Month Quilt, finishing June, July, and August.


I had the honor of featuring the lovely Rochelle of Lucky Lucille in my guest series on Sewing & Style.

  1. I’m sorry you’ve been having a hard time of it in graduate school. But, Erin, that sweater is S.T.U.N.N.I.N.G.!!!!!!!!!!! I saved that project on Ravelry many years ago and never got beyond that. :D

  2. I’m so glad you are feeling inspired and can see the light at the end of this tunnel! Hope makes all the difference in the world :)
