Oh, how I've missed thee, let me count the ways...

With Rhonda and Andrea at High Fashion
Oh, I've missed you too sweet sewing and sweet blog friends.

I've been busy, no lack of inspiration
Gosh how long has it been.  Before Susan Khalje class?
Oh my, I've got some catching up to do.

I had brunch and fabric shopping with my adorable friends Rhonda and Andrea.  I don't remember the day, but it was my last day off.  What a wonderful way to spend a Sunday!  Thank you so much ladies, discussions of fabric and patterns and fitting were fun.  How is that wedding dress coming Andrea?

Marfy 3089
But for now, a weekend off.  I have one problem client from work who's filing hangs like a dangling participle.  I'll worry about that on Monday.

I have a shirt started.  Its short sleeved.  Don't laugh, that's totally doable in Houston.  It may only get up to 50, but here in the office they crank the space heaters to 75 so sweaters are absolutely out of the question.

The pattern calls for stretch knit, but the CDC has some give and I plan on putting an invisible zipper down the side.

My fabric is navy floral CDC from Tessuti.  The colors are mesmerizing and the details are astonishing.  The front drape is an overlay.

Magic Dragonfly CDC
But first, cleaning and a short work out.  I miss the gym almost as much as sewing.  For supper, soup's in the crockpot and fresh salad for my cholesterol screening this month.

I had a life, then my job ate it.
Now I'm fighting back.

I've missed you!

More on the shirt and pattern later, plus a gathering of the UFO's.


  1. what a wonderful pattern and fab fabric. I cannot wait to see the result. Hope work improves soon and allows you time to sew.

  2. Keep on fighting back. Looking forward to seeing that fabric made up.

  3. Gorgeous fabric and another wonderful Marfy pattern. Hope work settles down soon, take care.

  4. Can't wait to see that Marfy made up!

  5. Cant wait to see the magic dragonfly fly. I found this cloth hard to resist in Tessutis but I did!!

  6. I love that fabric! I agree. It's 30 outside and 85 in my office,.

  7. Beautiful fabric. Love those colors!
