Gosh I'm a terrible Blogger lately and for that I'm so sorry! The craziness of life is catching up with me and I honestly haven't gotten any sewing done at all in the past week. Such is life I know, but I love to sew and it makes me sad when I don't have time to sew. On a bright note, I have managed to "pattern shop" my Ottobre back issues in search of clothing to make the kids for back-to-school. I also looked through some of my Burda WOF magazines and pattern shopped for myself as well. Unfortunately there are so many things I want to make and I know there is not enough time to make everything I want to (I need a battery pack so I never have to sleep! LOL).
I have managed to get a few Ottobre patterns traced out for the kids and did go through the fabrics and found most of what I will use (all stash, yippee!!! - that does say something about my stash tho doesn't it???). I really want to make all mix & match things for my daughter tho. Last year I was very bad about making this and that and not much went with each other. So this year I have a new plan (shall we say SWAP - sewing with a plan) and shall make her things that go with one another - what a novel idea! I also had her try on her old clothes and see what still fits so I can figure out how to incorporate those items into my sewing. I plan to sew in a SWAPish sort of way for myself too. I'm not sure what the color scheme will be - I really like black and pink so I might go that route. This may be hard for me because I like so many colors. Thankfully the boys are much easier - everything goes with jeans, khaki pants, etc. ~ hallelujah!!!!
