July in Review...

Sewing

I have been laid off from work this month and you're probably wondering what I've been doing with my time. Apparently, not much sewing especially if we compare it to last month. To be completely honest, I've been on recovery mode. Dealing with that cough that wouldn't quite and feeling run down at the beginning of the month, I didn't have the energy or desire to do much sewing. But did manage to get a few things done (three items for Mama R and the rest were for moi).  

Clockwise from top L:  Cardigan:  OOP Butterick 5760, Top:  Butterick 6182, Jacket:  Simplicity 2372, Dress: OOP Vogue 9625, Culottes:  Vogue 9091, Blouse:  Butterick 6097, Dress:  Simplicity 2372,


RTW Fast


I'm not worthy to be considered a RTW faster. I fell off the wagon and picked up work-out gear this month after I became discouraged how these shorts have been holding up. Can you believe the fabric is piling? I'm not impressed.

  1. I'm sorry to hear about your job and your cough. Your sewing month looks very productive to me! And I am SO impressed how meticulously you track yor supplies. Did you really buy 90m of fabric this month? Do tell!

    1. Oh my! That would be one heavenly dream fabric shopping trip! No, my stats are ongoing for the year so far. I should edit that so I'm more clear. Would you believe that I walked into a fabric store yesterday and everything was on sale for 50% off and I didn't purchase any fabric. There just might be hope for me!

  2. Aw, I'm sorry to hear about the job. :( I hope you find something interesting and good quickly.

    I second Lyndle's in being impressed by your supply tracking! That's really smart actually - I usually wind up buying stuff that I was sure I had but couldn't find (and thus confirm), only to find it days later. :P
