Sold House, Bought House, Etc...

Not much sewing going on here! But now the real work begins. In a few months im sure we will be thrilled, but the interim seems a bit daunting. No more constant worry that some realtor might just drop by. They have...some call first, but not all!

I did make a Sewaholic Renfro top. Love the pattern!!!

I'm also going through a three week regimen with Carac so no photos! today is day 8 and my face is not lovely. The purpose is to get all precancerous areas to stuff off before becoming full blown problems. Not fun, but needed to be done. Too many years at the beach and then living I the desert. Onward!

I'll be back with a sewing photo soon...

Nancy Erickson 1945C Finished!

There isn't much else to say about this jacket.  It is lined, buttons sewn, buttonholes made, hems finished, and it has been worn to work.  Passed the test!  I got several compliments and it is a comfortable garment to wear with either pants or a skirt.  Here is the finished garment and the buttons in a closeup. ETA the wrinkles on the shoulder/chest area are due to the dress form/my body differences.  On me, no wrinkles ;-)
