I'm a Dud!

I haven't sewn much so I haven't blogged--but I've been busy! I am enjoying my role as the AP at an elementary school and we have made a few quick trips to visit family. We spent the last weekend with our older son and his family up north--and we got to wake up to a foot of new snow. Quite a special treat for the desert rats of Las Vegas!

I do have sewing projects underway--just not finihsed. We will be in town for the next few weeks and I should be able to get some things done after work or on the weekends. I have been doing some fabric shopping at Lucy's and Chez Ami. I'm trying to contribute in some way! LOL!

Sewing Yes!

I made a Burda boatneck t shirt today--just had to make something I could sew and finish in one sitting. I still have the jacket under construction and bought ribbon and trim to finish it off--took DH into the fabric/trim store with me and he instantly was able to find great choices. I did not bring my camera with me, so neither the fabric/trim or the tshirt will be shown today. I used a knit border print and did a really easy trick--used the border for the hem and sleeve hems--no finishing needed on either the sleeves or the bottom of the garment. Instant gratification.

We are in CA--follow up med visits for my knee surgery, visits to my dad, and a little walking in the sunny outdoors. Oh yeah--we did have to sit inside for a couple of days to let the rain fall. The foothills are green and the sky was so clear today--luckily we do not live in the mudslide area although our little town got deluged during the last series of storms. We need the water in the West so I am not really complaining.

Photos next time!

I've been reading, I've been looking at others' pictures and projects, but I have not been sewing! It's been a busy week at work and I had a couple of medical appts on top of 3 physical therapy sessions. I'm doing well, just kinda old and creaky :>)

I'm going to finish my jacket this weekend. I really am!
