heat wave...My day has been 30 minutes in the studio, with 3 fans on me, then 10 minutes here
Then back to the studio, wash, rinse and repeat, etc....
I am ready to start my MOB jacket, but am waiting on interfacing from
Fashion Sewing Supply...Pam is the BEST...super products and the very best customer service.
I finally got the time to watch my latest Craftsy workshop, "The Ultimate Tee
Shirt" by Marcy and Katherine Tilton. This is one I can whole-heartedly recommend. It's basic, yet I learned a whole lot from it. It's so interesting to
discover how many little "tricks" there are that I haven't known about before. I totally enjoyed watching the dynamic between Marcy and Katherine...and seeing how there are MANY ways to accomplish various tasks. If you haven't signed up for this, do it now!
While waiting for the interfacing for MOB, I made a little Sandra Betzina jacket,
V7281 (OOP) out of a black and white polka dot cotton. Can't remember where I got the fabric...it's a lovely weight, little bit of stretch. I hope I never get too old to love polka dots!
I made "stacked" buttons to go on this, as I couldn't find just the right thing.
My Canon SLR camera is misbehaving (gasp) so I didn't get many pictures on me...
I like the little top...it's quite fitted.
I've started participating in Visible Monday, a weekly celebration started by Patti, on her blog, Not Dead Yet Style...
"Visible Monday started in July 2011 as a way to celebrate our diverse beauty and love of style. (Here’s where I first wrote about it.) I came up with the idea of a "Visible Day" for us bloggers, in which we post an outfit, accessory, lipstick color, hairstyle, etc., that expresses our Joy of Being (Physically) Visible.
Whoever wants to can join in, any given Monday. Just compose a post that includes any outfit, accessory, piece of jewelry, hairstyle, cosmetic or other adornment that makes you feel more confident, alive and visible that day. No restrictions, just share your beauty."
Come visit and see all the beautiful women...and join in, if you like!
