First, I'll be doing a guest post on Palak's blog next week. She's have a series on Sewing "Confessions" and I have been invited to share mine. She's got a great blog with tons of quick, clever projects, and a super helpful serger tutorial series, so head over and check it out!
Samuel's shirt is almost ready. I'll be able to add the buttons and buttonholes in plenty of time to wrap it for his birthday party, whoo hoo!

Also, I have a handful of items already cut out for the "Sewing to Rebuild" project. My awesome husband was gracious enough to let me defer his Father's Day present (I'm going to do some massive cleaning/organizing in the garage) so that I have more time to try to sew. I don't know if they are accepting items once the deadline is past, so I am trying to get as much done as I can and I definitely have way less time than I'd like. (That same husband is not quite awesome enough to let me quit my job so I can stay home and sew all day...). I bought a bunch of new fabric (I have a problem, I admit), and I plan to sew up some cute chevron skirts and shorts with part of my haul.
|The top fabrics (folded neatly) were purchased in the hopes that I |
could sew some items quickly enough to send to Oklahoma.
The bottom fabrics include Christmas chevrons and a knit
(on the right) that will be for family sewing
I bought some cute coordinates as well, to make up some new patterns I've acquired (that is another problem I have, especially since joining a FB group that promotes PDFs and I see cute patterns all the time now...)
|The crabs and the blue coordinates were bought with my nieces in mind. |
The anchors are going to be made into some Summer Sailor Shorts
And lastly, but certainly not least, I have a 4 piece outfit in mind to sew Samuel before next Sunday. I am going to have to dig deep into my bag of time management tricks because he is getting dedicated at church and I thought it would be great to make him a pair of pants, vest, button-up shirt and tie. Yeesh. I might just buy a shirt, skip the vest, and the tie and pants will be quick to sew. Does that count as time management?
