Lots of Sewing, Not as much Blogging

I've been sewing away!  ...just haven't been writing about it.  I gathered some previously un-posted pictures for your viewing pleasure.

 pouch pattern from Michelle Patterns.

Pixie Tote - my own pattern.

A dress using the free Junebug pattern...

and a blouse using a vintage pattern.

I was able to pull an old favorite (Anna Maria Horner's Socialite Dress pattern) out of the closet for myself to coordinate with my girls on Easter morning.

I am in the midst of putting the finishing touches on the Mermaid Fizz ladies' pattern to send it out to testers in a couple days.  
We have begun packing because we are moving to Atlanta in 3 weeks!!  I have set aside a large pile of fabric to pack, but I still have projects I want to work on/finish between now and when we move.  Am I crazy!?
My list includes, a knit shirt from Simplicity 1805 for myself, several pairs of knit shorts for the girls, a quilt/blanket/coverlet thingy for Eden's new room (Sarah Jane Out to Sea!) and I also have some sewing to do for a custom order and for a friend's two daughters.
When we get to Atlanta, I'll need to start the muslin for my party dress that I'm planning to wear to my husband's big graduation reception to finish off his residency.
Hopefully I'll have some time to share with y'all as I go, but I may very well disappear for a bit.

  1. I just discovered your blog after doing a Google search for a McCall's pattern. I have three little boys, but if we had a girl, I'd be copying many of your projects!
