I have been sewing... even though you haven't seen much of me lately. I feel like Instagram has ruined me for blogging... so much easier to take a photo and forget it, you know? Here is the makings of my next personal project:
For those still waiting for your sale packages we are working as fast as we can but we had about 4 times as many orders as usual during this sale and some of them are 3-4 pages long (meaning 60 or more fabrics) I promise we are cutting them in order they were received and we will have them done no later than Monday. I go into the Hospital on Tuesday for my big surgery and I will be pretty out of it for a week or so but the kids (who are grown ups if you were wondering) are going to be running the shop and I am still going to be cracking the whip from my bed :) So you shouldn't see an interruption in service at all. I am going to say one more time how proud I am of them... I have been training them for the last two months (so glad that I got to pick when to have the surgery) and they can easily do everything that I can do.
Here are a few things that I have made in the last 2 weeks (it is fun when you get your Sewjo back)!
I designed the pattern for this blouse to showcase the Wanderlust Lawn fabrics. I seriously adore this top it looks really good on as well as on the hanger (this pic was before I added the facing and hem but I think you get the picture). These fabrics are Sky and Dusk.
I also made a pattern for a t-shirt and did a sample out of Alison Glass Knits they are so soft to wear. Here is a little peek at it:
This was our last Mini for the "Maker's Mini Quilt of the Month" A cute little Flowering Snowball. I made it in Grand Canal by Kate Spain which we will have in the shop in October. I had just enough of my sample spree goodies to make kits for everyone in the Quilt of the Month group (I love to spoil my of the month groups with things that are special) plus a couple left over... So how would you like to win a kit for this quilt including the Mini Mania Book from which the pattern came, the 36 charms and everything else to make the top and binding? A little Grand Canal before you can buy it in shops...
Just leave a comment here letting me know what entices you to buy fabric most. Is it photos of finished projects, buzz, a certain designer you like, other? I will leave the giveaway comments open until next Friday but will likely not be able to do the drawing until the week after because I will be on pain meds and too loopy to be coherent LOL Also, it seems that more than half of the people that leave comments on the blog lately are no reply (meaning I can't contact you) so if you really want to win you need to leave me a way to contact you, I understand coded email like soandso at the big G dot com if you are worried about spam :)
PS. We are going to make an announcement about a new "...of the Month" program soon so keep an eye out.
