Sewing chaos

My little sewing studio has been a whir of activity this week with my machine going almost non-stop.

Oh my word, you should see the chaos on the floor. 

Not the cute organized chaos but the paper, pins, scissors, rulers, fabric, scraps, thread, trimmings, notebooks strewn all about chaos.

I've been busy sewing up a craft streak (Yea, I know. I should be working on my fall wardrobe...)

Even stopped by a local quilt shop the other day looking specifically for red/white polka dot fabric.

They didn't have any.

But they had a cute red/off white polka dot fabric.   And I had the opportunity to chat with the most delightful young woman who works there.  She's a fellow vintage pattern lover :-)

Anyway, the polka dot fabric she found for me works much better on my project than what I had thought I wanted. 

See? Here's a little sneak peek.


Gotta run!

Got a machine calling my name.

  4. You've got me curious... I love vintage patterns. But I never make anything with them. Well, except an apron that almost killed me.
