I finished something for ME

I LOVE,LOVE,LOVE this dress. It's so comfy,stylish & it fit right out of the package.
It's the Fit & Flair dress by Janneene Scott. I used Art Gallery Knit from my Bernina store-Bernina Connection. 
They had this dress in this fabric as a sample & I jumped on it. I tried the sample, so I knew what size  to make.
My sewing mojo for myself has been absent this summer, but this dress is a huge hit . I'm already looking through my stash to find what else I can use to make this again. 
Did I say I love it ?????
Yeah !

I changed my blog name

I changed the name of my blog. While the original name -One More Day above the Roses (my favorite song) will always be special to me , it didn't seem to fit my sewing goals & style . 
So a name change & hopefully a renewed dedication to sewing . 
I'm still struggling with my love of sewing but finding it hard to sew for ME . I've sewn more in the last few months than ever before but nothing for me . 
It has been a crazy summer with lots going on so trying not to be too hard on myself as I really have sewn sooooo much.
London City Bag for my Sister in Law - she LOVED it -yeah.
Classmate tote for DGD s 3rd birthday 
25 Rare Bears for the National MPS Society fundraiser at family conference .
20 monogrammed zipper purse pouches for a family baby shower giveaways .
Tool tote for ME -really complicated pattern but love it -need to take a picture . 
25 Onsis for hospital charity sewing group -CCS
Crocheted baby blankets -1 for baby shower & 1 for CCS. 

So a great summer of sewing & it's not over yet!!!!!
