Finally doing some fall sewing!

I have completed my fabric shuffle.  Pulled out some wonderful wool knits, suitings and cottons with spandex for a couple of white blouses.  This is all just for starters. I have so many ideas running through my head for things to make and so little precious time to complete them.  Here are some patterns I have pulled out that I will tackle.

I really like the litte wrapped jackets, keeps me very warm on some cold fall and winter days here in western New York.

I am loving the color blocking that is going on with these two patterns below.  I usually wear more skirts and cardigans with boots during the fall and winter. I have the perfect knit fabrics for both of these dresses.  One is red and black checked and I am wanting some red in my wardrobe really bad. I don't know why because the color red is not usually on my radar.  Hope to post a picture of the finised product soon.

I like both of these blouse patterns and have the perfect fabric for both. Stay tuned for pictures.

As always, Happy Sewing!

What time is it? Time to Get busy!

Well all I am back safely, Thank God...Had a blast with my children. My youngest grandson was riot, he's almost 2 and thinks he can do everything on his own....My oldest granddaughter came over and gave me a wonderful birthday gift, she is so very sweet.....Birthdays make you realize how very important family is....

My girls and I visited some wonderful new boutiques in the Buckhead area of Atlanta....They were extremely nice, my girls kept saying "Mom you could make that"  That presents a problem as it usually is something for them and right now I really want to be selfish and only sew for myself...I am certain they will make sure something slips in for them.

This weekend I promise to pull out the fall fabrics that are pressing heavily on my mind. I am still a little jet lagged considering I fell asleep around 2:00 AM Monday morning, got up around 6:45 and was at work by 7:45....I really wanted to put some inspiration pictures up on this post but that will have to wait until next time...I am slightly jaded right now and think I am going to call it a night.

Happy to have two followers

My Sewing Room

Today was cool and cloudy in the early morning...Rained in the afternoon and still raining.  I attempted to do some sewing but only cut out a couple pair of cigarette pants. 

I am posting a few pictures of my sewing room.  I still have quite a bit of fabric to put away and did not feel like it today. I was more interested in watching the US Open of which I am tremendous fan.  Once Serena Williams started to play I was too absorbed into tennis and could no longer focus on sewing.

September always ushers in quite a number of projects for me.  I went back to college a year ago and I have two classes beginning on 9/12/11.   I am looking forward to the classes but I have to figure out how to maximize my time with school and sewing as I have decided to go back to making everything in my wardrobe .

This is also my birthday month (09/09) and I am excited about my trip to Atlanta this week to spend time with my children, (their treat of course)  they are soooooo good to their momma...:)

Hope to post some of my additions to my fall wardrobe soon. 

As always, happy sewing.
