Business trip + Taxes = No sewing

This week has been busy with tax stuff and an out of town business trip,so that is why there has been no new sewing goodies to share. I have missed my sewing though. Tomorrow I have big plans to sew all day long!!! Can't wait. I had the best day at work today. Tom,our Free Spirit Fabric rep., came to our shop to show us some new fabrics.I really had too much fun picking out new fabrics!!!! I can't wait for you all to see what will be coming. I also had several visits from some of the most wonderful people in the store. Maybe it was the great weather we were having today but everybody was so cheerful and happy! Donna C. came by this afternoon to show us her version of the "Hop and Peep" stuffed animals that were in the recent Sew Beautiful Magazine. Oh how I wish I had my camera with me! They were absolutely adorable! She added the cutest tulle tutus to hers.I asked her if I could use her idea and she just laughed at me and said of course! I'm so excited to make one now that I have seen hers! Thanks Donna for the inspiration!!! Gracie and Molly are such lucky girls! Bye for now! Hope I'll have lots to show ya for next time!

Surprisingly this was easy to sew! Yea sure, there was alot of gathering to do but I'm getting use to all that now.I think I'm kind of liking it too, gives me something to do while watching TV. Wondering how this fits??? Looks like it would make a great play outfit.

Yet another "Sheri's Cherries Sundress". I can't help it!!! I am in love with making this little outfit. It's so retro,which I love. I'd love to see it modeled. I really like the color combo with this one.

Greetings from the Pathetic blogger!

This pattern is my new obsession. It has been so much fun coming up with different combinations to make it up out of. The pattern is by Kari Mecca and is called "Sheri's Cherries". It was on the cover of Sew Beautiful one time and I always thought it was one of the sweetest dress ever! Has the perfect vintage look.
Here it is made up in a more modern version and I used bloomers instead of the panties.

I bought this cherry print to make it up in another "Sheri's Cherries" sundress but I stopped myself because I happen to come across this "Isabella" pattern(by Maja Heirlooms). I have always wanted to make this adorable pattern but to be honest, it intimidated me. I needed a sewing challenge so I tackled it! So glad I did! It really is not as bad as I thought it would be.I already have ideas to make it up again.

I apoligize for not blogging in awhile. I've just been a little busy. Nothing big is going on, just a bunch of small things. But I found some time to sew.Yay! Just wanted to let everyone know that Sew Beautiful has done an interview of me on their new blog! So go check it out here (Oooooo, I just learned a new trick to add a link). The article is finally out and seems to be creating a little interest in the shop cause we have had lots of webstore orders for our kits. Thank you soooooooo much for your orders! This is the first time we have had an article in a magazine ever. We all had no idea what to expect. But we are so happy with the response!!!!!!!!
That's it for now! Have a great day!
