My weekly chat and welcome to new followers...
Hello everyone, another week has gone by and a new week is about to start. Where does the sewing time go to?
The first thing I would like to do today is welcome two new followers, Diana and Hana, and also a new follower on Bloglovin - Djamila.
Last week flew by in a hurry - partly because over the weekend my husband and I spent a lovely weekend in Sydney - he really needed a break. On Monday he took me to a couple of nice fabric stores - I can buy online from them, but it was lovely to visit and actually touch and feel the fabric and get to know what the stores are like. I enjoy the tactile fabric experience as well! You Sydneysider sewists would know them well - Tessuti's, The Fabric Store and The Remnant Warehouse.
So the rest of the week was spent catching up - there is always the price to pay! :)
I DID FINALLY FINISH MY TROUSERS! So a big thank you to all of you who encouraged me in this journey.
THIS WEEK: I shall continue my posts on body shape and the styles that suit them. I will be looking at the "Rectangle" body shape - quite a common shape and one quite a few of us develop around midlife. I'll also post some guidelines for "Petites" - ladies 5'4" or under (5'3" according to some guidelines).
Thank you to all of you who have joined the 2013 Style The Stash Sew-A-Long, which starts June 1st. I'll be updating the news sheet at the end of the week, so feel free to join by adding a comment, either here or at:
So, by the end of the week I'll have a new blog set up - I will have to add you all as co-authors, which will need you to email your name and email address to me. If you are wondering why, just google "multiple authors on Blogger" and that will tell you. It's a great way to post your thoughts and we can all communicate with each other.
I'll also tell people at http://sewyourownwardrobeforayearchallenge.blogspot.com
as some of them may be interested as well. I know some of you are already in this challenge, but I think a little bit of extra motivation helps the sewjo along :)
Have a great week everyone,
Sarah Liz :)
