Did a run on the weekend…

so no sewing.  Sad for the no sewing - Happy that I can still do 10 k without having a heart attack! I did post to The Monthly Stitch for their April Challenge though - Flower Power Two Fabrics, so if you have an interest in expanding your sewing community, or are curious, come on… Continue reading Did a run on the weekend…

When is a Sewaholic Hollyburn, not a Sewaholic Hollyburn?

Perhaps, when you almost don't have enough fabric to finish it! I've been bustin' through my stash and so far, have made a flowered vintage dress and a red Sewaholic Hollyburn.  Next I thought I would make a black Sewaholic Hollyburn - you can see the link to the pattern company here:  Sewaholic Hollyburn.  I… Continue reading When is a Sewaholic Hollyburn, not a Sewaholic Hollyburn?

I (heart) RED!!

The Monthly Stitch Challenge in February was "Miss Bossy" telling us what solid colour we must sew up.  Miss Bossy's commands for me were:  yellow (which makes me look like the walking dead!), blue (which I love), or RED (which I really love).  So lucky me, Miss Bossy was surprisingly kind and told me I had… Continue reading I (heart) RED!!

No rain, a new hair-do and a new dress!

... this is Happiness! It's Frocktober! A while ago I received my Sewaholic Yaletown pattern in the mail and knew I had to sew it up with my Batic 100% rayon purchased during my shopping trip to Vancouver!  My dress is done now, just in time, and I am very pleased with it. This pattern was… Continue reading No rain, a new hair-do and a new dress!
