Hello There!

News Flash!!

It's been so long since my last post.  A lot has happened in my little world.  
  • Khalje/Buss Sewing Workshop was fabulous.  I need to write my review.
  • Working on plaid jacket with leather bound buttonholes and trim.
  • Working on several muslins for dresses and tops.
  • Made a few things:
    • plaid skirt
    • knit dress
    • cardigans
    • knit tops
  • Member of the Haute Couture Club of Chicago Fashion Show Committee 2015.
  • Spending too much time on Instagram.
  • Submitted my letter of retirement on December 3rd.
  • Happily celebrating my new lease on life.  Oh, what will I do with all that time? :-)
  • Cleaning my office.  It is amazing the amount of "stuff" you collect over for years.  I hate to give up my university computers :-(
  • Preparing for a prosperous new year. 
So, I hoping to post the workshop review by Christmas Eve.

In the meantime, Happy Sewing!
