Betcha, Bygolly, Wow....

Wow! It has been so long since I posted. Life seems to be really busy these days. Sorry peeps! Like my homage to The Stylistics?! Been listening to some songs of theirs recently and I'm lovin' it!

So, all has not been lost lately, as I have been doing some sewing! My best friend received her birthday gift so now I can blog about it. Win! I sewed her a table runner using a charm pack. I also bought some backing fabric that matched and I think it came together quite nicely. She liked it so that's another win! Here it is....

I also sewed a couple sunglass cases, as I bought a pair of new sunglasses recently and did not have a case for them. One case was for my friend and one for me. I like how they turned out and they were easy to construct.



I started sewing my dress from the Collete pattern and have run into some fit issues. Overall, I like how it is turning out but will need to work on it a bit to get the right fit. For now I have put it aside and moved along to other projects. I find that this is how I seem to sew. If it turns out great, win! If it's not turning out as I had hoped, I usually get frustrated and put it aside for a bit in order to make something else. The good news is that there is ALWAYS something else to sew!!


In other news I am going on a cruise next Friday, the 14th. Super win! And it's with the New Kids on the Block. Super Duper Win! I had wanted to sew some sun dresses to take with me and I was able to get 1 made from some Amy Butler fabric I had sitting around for some time. I am really happy with how it turned out and it didn't take too long to put together. I started it last Sunday and then on Monday night and Tuesday finished it up!



What have you been sewing/making lately?
