Au Revoir for now.

Grab button for 

This has been a great sew-a-long and it has been fantastic meeting you all.  Unfortunately, the momentum is going down- this always happens after some time - people get busy, lives happen.

But, we have managed to make lots of gorgeous garments.  Our stashes have become stylish as we have sewn it and sewn alongside each other.


SO:  a minimum of 800 or more yards...phenomenal!
Its now time for me to say au revoir - and if you still want to be part of a sew-a-long for 2014 visit

More than a little Sad

... (Ooops! I hadn't quite finished).

It's sad that this blog will be closing. I had hoped it would continue in 2014 as it is such a friendly place to be. I understand the amount of work it has been for Sarah, we've all been very lucky to have such a caring person take charge. Thanks Sarah. Good luck with the studies.

Huge thanks

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to pop in an offer huge thanks to Sarah for hosting this sewathon.

Unfortunately, my efforts for the latter part of 2013 amounted to zero! Family illness, along with DH's long service leave and associated travel plans, intervened and as such sewing, very much, took a backseat. I'm hoping to get back into sewing in this new year, but only time will tell whether that's feasible.

I've thoroughly enjoyed the company of all you fellow sew-ers, gained numerous ideas from your posts and admired your many creations. I look forward to viewing your blogs in 2014.

Happy New Year

My last garment contribution...

I don't think I will be doing a mad dash job of sewing anything tonight :) so this is my last garment for the year.  I used Butterick 5917 and used a total of 2.5 yards for the dress and 2 yards for the muslin.

Happy New Year Everyone, and it's been great sewing along with you.

Next year I will be running the Make a Garment a Month Challenge, if you want to join that.  You can find out more here.

This skirt was already cut out, and I have made it
several times .. So the fitting was already done.
Made for a quick/easy sew.. Tiny waist band
in front and elastic in the back. Side zipper.
It is such a lovely soft corduroy fabric.. Will
be really nice /warm  during our winter.

Better Late Than Never Right? the saying goes. I made the vest in November. The skirt does not count. It was made sometimes last year...I think. But I am trying to squeeze some things in before the original deadline. So being off from work these couple of holiday days would be a good time to play catch up. So, better late than never.

1 and 1/4 yards for the vest and 1/4 yard for the stocking.
(December made)
