Fall/Winter sewing

Looking through all of the September issues of my favorite fashion mags, InStyle, People Style Watch, Marie Claire, Harper's Bazaar, Essence...what to make? Hmmm!
Well, I want to make a nice three quarter length coat out of some grey pendelton wool I've had for a while, also three pair of slacks for work, preferably, black, navy and grey.  So many thoughts are in my head and I thought if I wrote them down that would help....not working. I thought I would spend this past weekend pulling out my fabrics and making a decision but that did not occur.  My weekend was a blurr.....This week I will make my list and then pull out the patterns and then decide on the fabric.  Hopefully by my next blog I will post a picture of something...until then....Happy Sewing...

First Blog

This is my very first blog, exciting.  Like everyone else this has been a wonderful summer. The fall happens to be my most favorite time of the year.  I am currently rearranging the fabrics in my sewing room. Moving out the spring and summer fabrics and bringing in the fall and winter fabrics.  I have so much fabric in my stash.....I could make one item a day for 365 days and still have fabric...I am trying to avoid purchasing more fabric..but that is not that easy.... With that being stated....Happy sewing to all..
