This and That

Yes, another this and that post.  It's been too long since I last posted.  There is so much going on this month and last.  So here is the short of it:

  • School started August 20th; I taking two classes.  I've already written four papers and two presentations.  Next, week is the first mid-term for my online management course (six chapters).
  • Finally came up with a theme and segments for the HCC Fashion Show 2013.  Thank you Sue H., Sandy Y., and Delores P.  I'm still pulling together a committee to help with the various aspects of the show.  I started stressing about it; Rhonda Buss helped me overcome that anxious feeling with a single question,  Shhh.., I won't tell.
  • The first HCC Fashion Show Challenge is the color Blue, any shade of blue will do. 
  • Work is a beast!!  Let me say it again, WORK IS A BEAST!!! I'm tired in the morning and tired in the evening.
  • Unity Conference starts next week.  No off-white dress on my to make list.  There are at least three in my closet to choose from.
  • I want to sew but am too tired to.  Good thing is, last week I cut two jackets, two pants, two dresses, and one blouse.  Before selected my fabrics, I pulled out my trusty little color palette to see if the colors were best for me.  Yep.  Right on target.  Monday evening, I serged several pieces to make it easy when I do have the energy to sew a little.
  • A new button company found my blog and sent me some free buttons.  Gorgeous!  They also offer a 20 percent discount for me and my readers.  More on that later. 
Hopefully, this week I will be able to sew something.

Happy Sewing!


  1. I got that button email too and relegated it to spam. I am glad it worked out for you.

  2. I can't believe you had the time to post all of this activity! You're one busy person.

  3. Hi Cennetta!
    Sounds like a good plan to cut out several things and serge so they are ready when you have the energy :)
    I made the PP classic jacket pattern and now am making several pants from the butterick jean pattern. Now I am wishing I would have done the color analysis like you did. Maybe next year.
    Your classmate from Fit,
