I have been sewing this weekend. Not quilting, tho. I have made 2 blouses for Auntie out of that slickery fashion fabric. Did I tell you that when I went to visit the last time that I took fabric with me? I wanted her to pick out what she wanted and she picked out all of them! *s* I shouldn't have been surprised because the reason I had it anyway was because she gave the fabric to me. So it just shows that she liked it enough to buy it in the first place.
It took me a bit of time to make a new pattern from the old tissue and then transfer the changes from the sloper onto the Do-Sew®. But now it is done and I'll be able to whip out the other 3 blouses. I forgot how nasty that collar was on that pattern. Bah! Plus the front is 2 inches shorter than the back because of her dowager hump.
I was on a roll with that slickery stuff. I also made a blanket for somebody (don't know who yet) that has that stuff on one side and Minkee on the other. Kind of like these. Hoo wee! I don't think I'll make another one of these. I didn't realize I was that much of a masochist.
My favorite wrist pincushion gave up the ghost. I'll have to make a new one, I suppose, since I really like the wrist pincushions and missed mine today. I kept trying to give myself acupuncture by putting my sewing pins in my wrist. Not fun. I think I remember that Michele had a tutorial. I'll have to check it out and hopefully carve out a bit of time to make one.
All in all, I busted 9 yards of stash. O and several partial spools of thread.
