I was stunned that I hadn't blogged since April - but the last 2 months have been a mixture of helping a family member , travel , #1sons PhD graduation , time in NYC with Son, WDIL & of course DGD .
But as you can see by my smile as a sewer I managed to squeeze in some fabric shopping in Dublin. I bought 2 pieces of Irish Linen 😍😍
I also bought fabric while in NYC at Mood & Metro Textiles.
The travel was wonderful & the family member I was also helping seems to be improving as well so TIME TO SEW!!!
What to make first can be paralyzing , but I'm spending some quality time in the sewing room thinking things through . I usually just jump right into a project & many times realize I either don't have enough fabric, or the fabric isn't right for the pattern. So..,
I'm working on slowing the process down & thinking !!!
My charity sewing is really helping that process. I can sit at my serger & make baby Onsies for our CCS group for the local hospitals. While doing this I feel I have time to look at my cutting table for inspiration .
Some loose cotton voile tops seem to end calling my name !
But that skirt & table runner ...
