Bucket list -sewing with Susan Khalje

Hey Ya'll 
I'm in  Houston ready to start my week class with Susan Khalje !! I'm beyond excited & beyond nervous 😩 😩
I hope I'm not over my head.  But trying to focus on I'm hear to learn !!
My sewing machine packed in bubble wrap made it through TsA with flying colors ( ha ha ) .
I had to borrow back the small Janome I won last year from my sister in law. All my Bernina's were toooooo heavy . The Janome weighs 12 pounds . 
I had a great few days visiting my nephew , his wife & 3 kids . Lots of great energy ! 
So wish me well & I'll try to keep up with my progress .
Happy Sewing !

Catching up & sewing fun

Wow over a month since I've blogged ! 
I'm always sewing just not always taking the time to blog . 
I finished the Sandra Betzina pop top & I love it . Her staff saw it in my IG post & asked if they could  post on her social media -I was thrilled ! I also wore it out & a female bartender asked where I got the top. Again it was a treat to have someone comment !
I thought I had a picture of the everyday tank  I made but I don't. I also don't love it . I used a very nice quilting cotton & it just didn't hang very well . Fabric was recommended on pattern but it was too stiff even tho it was a softer cotton .  But I feel  learn from each experience .
This make is an In the Hoop Embroidery design from pickle pie . It was easy -sent to #2 son as a prototype . It's a tech bag for cords etc. I think the pockets are too small to hold much but we'll see what he thinks .

Happy Sewing
