In Sewing News Today...

I'm tired. It is that end of the school year exhausted kind of tired. Two more days to go. 

It is the kind of tired that you don't even want to come home and sew but you do because you have to. The kind of push yourself into sewing that requires a seam ripper near by. I had to use it on the baby onsie that I just made because I picked the wrong knit stitch. removing white thread off a white knit is not my idea of a good time. Thankfully, it worked out without damaging the fabric. I currently have eighteen metres of fabric sitting on my sewing table that I need to cut and sew into three tablecloths. I want to get it done before the end of the school year so I can return it and not be haunted with a work project hanging over my head. It looks like I will be busy tomorrow evening. I have my seam ripper ready just in case.  

Once I have the tablecloths done I hope to take some time off and relax. Maybe finish the book that I can't believe I haven't finished yet!  

Can you believe that I'm not even half way through this book? Also on my summer reading list is this book recommended by Jane and Karen

I've had it in my hot little hands since May. At the rate that I'm getting through these books I might be the last person to finish them.  

Then, hopefully then, my creative sewing mojo will return and I can get back to sewing for the love of sewing. There is a jacket that I promised Mama R late last year that I really should cross off my to-do list.  

Until then, happy sewing!  


  1. I am so with you this one. I can't wait for the end of the school year, but we have over 3 weeks left to go and there is no let up! Also trying to complete sewing projects for others.

    1. Oh my gosh, I feel for you. I hope the some breaks in the next three weeks.

  2. By the time I finish the baby clothes I am sewing for a friend, he will have grown out of them...I understand.

    1. I was trying to finish this up before the baby was born because I feared the some thing. I thought if I didn't and waited for the baby shower it may not fit the little one. It is hard to tell how fast they grow and what weight they will be born at too.


McCall's 7630: Pullover Top

It's an easy sewing project for a loose-fitting pullover top. It's my second go with this pattern and I still want to make another ...
