Thanks to the good friends we make when sharing in cyberspace Vicki at HongKongShopper blog is the winner of the DVD Fitting set with the “most votes in the comment section” Yay!!! The hours she’s put in on her fitting shells and her diligent posts about it for the past number of months have paid off in an unexpected way, eh? Sewists are so kind and generous, I know these DVDs will make the rounds of those who need them.
Meanwhile, back at The Stitchery, I have hardly even been there. I’ve had the most frustrating week trying to finish up the commercial sewing. I did so want to have something fashionable, made by me, to post here by today but noooooo, the preschool has again taken up almost a full 40 hours. Ouch!!! I’ve been bit in the backside again. I guess all new businesses require lots of extra time as “par for the course” but this is too much “par” for me (she said with a grimace). I can never even guess all the problems this school will present in one day.
How do I quit this job???? I’m smart, I should be able to get out from under this extra load. I’m dying to get back to sewing up the fabrics bought at Silk Roads in Austin, TX, and Textile Fabrics in Nashville, TN, earlier this year.
I so wanted to get to play with this Eva Dress pattern this winter
B30-7186 Ladies’ Blouses, circa 1934
Now here it is Spring already in the northern hemisphere.
And I just found out this weekend that I have a sales conference next weekend in Huntsville, Alabama. It would be wonderful if I could have time to catch up with Sew Random’s Lisa but these trips don’t usually allow for getting away from the booth and out on the town.
Fashion does make the woman, puleeze don’t think it don’t!!! What about that Carla Bruni?
Searching Telegraph.co.uk produces major headlines re the lovely, and hopefully reformed, M’me Sarkosy.
Have you ever seen flats bring a country to it’s feet so fast???? Never! A demure presence, a beret that looks like a Jackie Kennedy O pillbox … a little sleeze … Cherchez la femme!
