Craft book giveaway

Not here - although maybe sometime in the future as I certainly could stand to thin out my bulging bookshelves. The book giveaway is going on all month over at The Naughty Secretary Club blog. Week number two's book is Sew Darn Cute: 30 Sweet & Simple Projects to Sew & Embellish . It's currently underway and I believe you have until next Monday. At that time a new book to be given away will be posted. Go check it out!

Retro inspired jacket - Simplicity 2701

Simplicity 2701 - another keeper from Simplicity's Project Runway patterns. Full pattern review in a few days.

Lining, buttons and thread

Lining, buttons and thread. That's all that was on the list. Lining for a skirt that's in progress. It's another version of McCall's 5431 using stash fabric. Thread so I can begin sewing a Simplicity 2701 jacket. Using stash fabric. Stash fabric that had no matching thread. Buttons so I when above jacket is complete I won't have to wait to add it to my closet. Lining, buttons and thread. That's all that was on the list. And I was sticking to the list. Except when I accidentally walked by the remnant bin and saw some lovely cottons, including some Amy Butler prints. *Sigh* I forgot the thread.
