More sewing

I made these Sew Trendy Bags in the hoop & Rare Bears . These are for an MPS fundraiser for my friend Kris . Her son & my niece died of the same rare disease . 
I also made 3 more bags for my upcoming Christ Child Society fundraiser . They are quick & fun to make . 

Also sewed some fun items for DGD - 2 year old are so fun to sew for !!! Just always wishing she didn't live so far away !!! The picture of her in the reversible apron, chef hat & oven mitt was so adorable . She said "I'm cooking hot " 
Now back to some sewing for me 
A skirt & table runner are STILL on the cutting table 

Sandra Betzina & lots of sewing

Wow I can't believe it's been over a month since I've updated my blog.  I've been in a small funk about the blog because my only follower is  I my #2 son. But then I realized it started this to document MY sewing adventures ! 
So I have been sewing !!
My trip to San Fransciso was fabulous . I loved the week of sewing with Sandra Betzina & learning so much from her & the other ladies in the class. The Marine Memorial Hotel was a great location & the sewing room was very well staffed & set up for sewing .
We had a wonderful dinner the first night at Sandra's home . I had to keep pinching myself that I was actually with THE Sandra Betzina . She is very down to earth . I finished her twist top & ponte puzzle pants . I love both of them , but need to tweak the pants as the leg is too full at the bottom. 
We were right around the corner from  Britex fabrics. I made several trips there & bought some great mesh & more ponte . 
We also took a field trip to Piedmont fabrics & Stone Mtn . Both places were great  I of course bought fabric at both places . I do love online shopping ,but nothing takes the place of seeing quality fabrics in person !!!!
It was a truly special week for me & I learned so much about sewing as well as about myself & sewing for my lifestyle !!!

Sandra looked so stylish every day - such an inspiration !
