No it’s not, because the answer will always be, sew…… or dream up dreamy sewing dreams.
I’ve been pondering the Spring Racing Carnival coming up in November. Do I go classic? Do I go rockabilly? Do I even go? Whether I go or not, it’s always fun to pour over suitable fabrics and patterns. I’ve found a belly load of lovelies through the Tessuti website. Behold:
Aloha my lovely!
Also while avoiding doing the dishes I came across a great pattern making blog- Studio Faro, in Sydney Australia. I am in Melbourne, but would consider the trip north to do a workshop with them. For example, I’ve had my greedy little eyes on this vintage wrap top for a little while now… I was intrigued by the patterning.
As I whittled away the hours ignoring the dishes, I found Studio Faro and the hard work is all done for me! Ta Da!
Let it be said that I am a pattern making GEEK! I mean I will often take a new pattern to bed to read over like normal people would read books. It doesn’t guarantee that I will be sewing the said pattern, just enjoying the tech-whiz-bango of it before lights out. It is my passion, and I am currently fulfilling my dream to learn CAD pattern making. More about that at a later date.
CAT LADY UPDATE:
