Missing camera...

Well, I have unpacked (or at least inspected) all of the sewing room boxes and my camera is not among the remains.  Hmmmm.  I am not the family photographer, but I like having a simple point and shoot camera to document my sewing.  Looks like I may have to find a special or sale to replace the missing item.  That's the sure way to have it show up...

I have been doing some sewing.  Here's my list:

1.  Textile Studio Soho Pants--yellow twill for summer.  LOVE this pattern and have already done a little morphing to make it a TNT.  I used the LH Euro pant front to modify the upper front of this pattern to accommodate a front fly zip.  I am planning to make a new pair tomorrow.  I've worn the yellow ones to several casual events and have been comfortable and sort of on trend with a bright color slimmer leg pant.

2.  LH tank top--white.  Just a staple to wear under sheer summer tops.

3.  2 Perfect tees--one in brown knit and one in teal lace knit.  The brown knit was a remnant purchased at the LH seminar.  It is a different knit--really two layers lightly fused.  I did not hem any of the raw edges--just top stitched about 1/4 inch from edge to allow the two layers to separate and roll.  I like the look!  The teal lace top is also raw edges for sleeve and hem--I did turn and stitch the neck edge.

ETA  Item #4--crop pants in tangerine linen from a modified LH pattern.  Love the fit and how easy they were to sew!!  Bought a coordinating top at H and M and have a cute outfit for hot weather!

I need to keep this list to verify that I am still spending a little time at my hobby!

I am going to meet a fellow sewist for coffee next week--haven't met IRL before, so I'm looking forward to chatting with a new friend.

Happy Mothers Day to everyone!  Another good opportunity to remember my dear Mom and thank her for all she did for us.  Never a day without thinking of you and missing you...
