I was finally productive yesterday! But made close friends with my seam ripper too. I just can't stand it if it's not just right. I love the way the red denim jumper turned out. It's tough too for all those tomboys out there like my little girl, but sweet enough to turn heads. The pocket turned out really well too.

You know when you head to the fabric store with one thing in mind, and wind up with something completely different? That happened to me. I was all set to use an olivey green for the lining of my current project, but wound up with a deep plum. Go figure. Sometimes you just know it when you see it. The modern fans dress is really coming out great. Good for all those that like something a little unconventional. Check back for skorts too, as those are on my to do list.

Well, I finished the little denim, and now I'm doing an ultra-fun jumper with fans on it. I love it when I have all the elements I need in my workspace. Unfortunately for me, that's not the case this morning. So I'm off to the fabric store to find an olivey green for the lining. The good news is I have already made some piping I want to use, so that labor intensive process is in the rear-view mirror.

I'd like to find some wool material to make warmer dresses for the winter, but am having a hard time with the care involved. Hand wash only, UGH. Must run to the store and get this going.
