Not Much Blogging, but Sewing Some on this Highway I call Life!

My life was traveling down Easy Lane until all of a sudden, I got drawn down Busy Street, onto Hectic Highway.  I've been traveling down the hectic highway for a few weeks now, but I have found some sewing rest areas along the way.  Here are a few of the items I've sewn over the last few weeks:

Vogue 1250                           Sew Simple A1638


I am not able to add my pictures to the Sew your Own Wardrobe Challenge, so if anyone can post my pictures, I do appreciate it.  Happy Sewing as we travel down life's highway!

Sew Simple 1738 - Jacket.

I work in an office building that feels like its 20 below everyday, year round.  I wanted to find a pattern for a simple jacket and while at Walmart I came across this pattern while strolling through the Walmart Fabric department.  SewSimple which is a Simplicity brand is only .97 cents at my Walmart.  I have a few but this is the first that I have actually made.  At first glance I passed it up, but went back to get it because I thought it was kinda cute.  Then, while surfing one day, I came across The Fearless Seamstress's version, and I absolutely love it. 

Happy Sewing!

She's getting her Dougie on and so I am.

Oh my did this image give me a pick me up.  I have been so busy with helping my Mom who recently got hard wood floors installed throughout her home and she needed help putting her house back together and helping my sister, I have had no time to sew much.   

I have been too tired to even start a project, but I was doing some blog surfing and came across this animation/gif.  I started hollering it was so darn funny.  And check out her buddy in the background shaking her head.  

She is giving me sewing life, off the sewing machine I go. Happy Sewing!

Simplicity 1920 - Thanks Blogger Sisters

Today I wore my Simplicity 1920 top.  I took the suggestions of my lovely blogging sisters and wore white pants with it.   You don't see my sandals but they are gold wedges, which were a nice compliment.  I hate taking bathroom pictures, but I didn't have anyone to take a picture for me.   I liked my outfit so much today, I did the dreaded bathroom shot. 

Happy creating!
