What's New?

I hope everyone enjoyed their Valentine's Weekend. I did: shopping, dinner out, and good company. Sweet..., I like to "Valentine Day" all year long. It's alway great to have time off from work to enjoy the fruit of your labor. Especially these days.

Thanks for commenting of the recent fashion trends. I really enjoyed hearing what others think about the Spring trends. This week I will post a few more. I won't "answer" the "call" of every fashion trend, but I like to sharing fashion ideas from magazines, shows, and online. It seems as if the trends are all over the place, in style, color, texture, and silhouttes.

Sewing News: I spent more time organizing projects for clients, DD, and myself. The clients just keep coming. Three new ones over the weekend (referrals) for alterations. For my good, one decided to go elsewhere. The remaining two are simiple. hemming of a dress and hemming a pair of pants.

I'm almost done with two projects cut for myself. (vest-S2862 and skirt-B-5249). I'm so pleased with the fitting results of the vest. My Palmer/Pletsch: "Fit for Real People" is a must have for any sewing library. Still sewing the winter wardrobe. Peter Sow dress has been cut, The popular, galaxy dress has been cut, pants and skirt for DD have been cut. So alot of projects started for me and DD, but nothing finished yet.

The same is true for graduation and prom clients. One niece is coming tonight with fabric and pattern. My other niece will come for her muslin fitting this weekend.

Thinking about dresses for me and DD: Easter, Pastor's Anniversary party, and a ball (church friend -company party-pending). As always, I have a lot on my plate. So I need to ramp it up a bit. I will probably take a sewing vacation in March/April to help move things along.

Working very hard testing, webinars, and functional support. The budget for our project has been approved. So I get to keep this job a little longer. Thank God. So I think we're on for a trip to Louisiana late Spring to attend the annual convention hosted by our product vendor. All is well and very busy.

Happy Sewing!


  1. Always glad to hear when someone's job is secure. The news on the economy is so depressing these days, even with the stimulus passing.

  2. I am glad for you as well. Still job hunting myself. Went to the local college to get information on training in a different field but same type of job (admin. asst. to medical admin. asst.) A lot of things up in the air on my plate right now. Just trying to get it all sorted. Sewing on my end is beginning to warm up. Scrubs doing fine and I have an order for two. Keep it up girl.

  3. Wow, you have a ton on your agenda!! I'm pretty selfish though, because I can't wait to see them all. :)

  4. I don't know how you do it all! You are an amazing superwoman!! You have your job which keeps you very busy, and a nice little sewing business on the side. And you're not just sewing little projects. These are time intensive garments that require precise fitting and solid sewing skills.
