What I’ve Been Up To Lately

Hi everyone!  It sure has been awhile since I’ve blogged!  I do have a few projects to blog about, but I have to get pictures of the finished items before sharing with you.

Have you started your holiday sewing yet?  I have not, but have a few items planned.  Let me rephrase that, I haven’t started sewing gifts yet, but I have made one stocking.  Which you can see on my Facebook page or on Twitter.

Michelle Patterns 2012 Holiday Sale

You should check out Michelle Patterns holiday sale that I mentioned at the beginning of October because she is offering all of her patterns for only $5; now through November 25th.  Oh, and don’t forget about her older patterns that are always $3.  You can find the link to them on the right hand side of the shop home page.

You can see the few items of hers that I have made here, here, and here.  I still really like the messenger bag and highly recommend it if you have already sewn a decent amount.  It’s not as basic as the other patterns, but still very possible for a confident beginner to make.

So, you are probably wondering what I have been up to lately.  Well, not enough sewing or blogging.  I could blame it on this…..

Ruler

Yeah, that is my 6 x 24 ruler.  That is what will happen when a tripod meets your ruler by falling on it.  I don’t really recommend them meeting in this way!  Luckily, Amazon Prime is amazing and I was able to get a new ruler in 2 days and I didn’t have to take the time to get to a store.

So anyway, I could blame my lack of sewing on a broken ruler, but really, I have to blame it on my own laziness and addiction to TV and the computer.  Does anyone else have this problem?  I still have a whole list of things that I want to make, so I just need to break away from the couch and get to sewing.

Stayed tuned because two of my projects that are completed, will be mini tutorials and might be great gift ideas.  I also plan on choosing a Michelle Patterns pattern to make so that I can show you and review the pattern.

    I will also blame my sewing laziness on TV addiction as well as trying to do other crafty things for the holidays…but mostly I will blame the fact that I AM PREGNANT!!! Also I am just really lazy. But I have two projects in the works I’m just doing them very v e r y v e r y Slowly
