So,,dusted off the embroidery machine,,yes I have one. I'm trying a new sizing product,,should save on using interfacing behind the embroidery.  Belts have Crafters Interfacing,,,,stiff stuff.

 Last exam today, and tomorrow I need to find a job.  But right now,,new ideas.

Belts,,I think.

Goal for this week,,post at least one complete belt pattern.  Something that goes together in pieces,,for those of you who like to work on something a little bit at a time.



Oh dear,,time has gotten away from me

Well,,not really,,I just didn't realize how many ppl were looking at my site,,,wow...

Anyway,,,been BUSY,,In school,,,Electrical Engineering, no's exam time now.

I've done SOME sewing,,but not much,,,time is valuable to the student.  But now summer is here, I've made a commitment to get back in my sewing room and come up with some stuff.

What would you all like to see?

I have super circle skirt with rag flounces,,,,,,instructions will be posted.  OMG,,,did it ever flow around at Dancing on the Edge last year.  Had it's own headline.  I became  the woman with the SKIRT.

Love when that happens!!!!

This year I have two numbers,,,,,,,,and I need another skirt.   Super fluff,,I'm thinking.  Catch lots of air.

I apologize for not maintaining ,,,,but I'll do my best from now on,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

I commit to at least one hour a week to you,,my sisters of the dance and sewing machine.



I'm back to the land of the living

I apologise for my absence,,,,,,,,,but one house fire,,destroyed my sewing room, one messy divorce (after 23 years of marriage) and subsequent rebuilding of my life,,has left me with little time up until now.


But guess what,,,still sewing,,,,still dancing,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,through it all.


And I'm thinking of taking up flamenco..................

So stay tuned.


Back,,better than ever,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,miss me?
