Weekly Chat and Welcome to New Followers
I also like to welcome my New Followers - this week, Giggles, Melanie, Scheryka, Renata, and, from
Bloglovin, Sam. I've found your blogs as well.
This week has been exciting with getting the blog for the 2013 Style the Stash Sew A Long organised. This Sew A Long runs for 7 months and you can sew what you like as often or as little as you like, from your stash. Our participants are all hopeless stash-a-holics, so we haven't made pledges to not buy any more fabrics, but we are all going to try and use some stash over the next few months. If you want to join, please pop over to the blog and say hi, and send me an email: email@example.com.
It should be great fun and we would love to have you on board....
Last week saw me actually start some new sewing projects - the first part of the year seemed to disappear without as much sewing done as I liked. So this week I quickly made two pairs of warm slim pants, based on a leggings pattern. To view: http://sarahlizsewstyle.blogspot.com.au/2013/05/new-lounge-pants-being-worn.html
Today I have been busy cutting out - a rare event for Sunday as I normally do things that need doing (you know the sort of thing - washing, ironing, chores of various sorts). I have either caught up with them, or they could wait until next week. So I went on a cutting binge:
|The Wild Side Slim Pants|
Some of you might disagree - when do you think we get too old to wear something? Or should we wear what we like regardless of our age and whether it actually looks flattering?
|Getting ready to lay out pieces prior to cutting.|
|Pieces cut and in basket ready to sew.|
So now I am ready to enjoy my day off this week - I can just move straight into the sewing, which will inspire me to get up really early!
I do hope you have a good week with whatever it is that life brings you this week,
Sarah Liz :)
