Hi! I'm still here, still sewing :) hubby and I  bought a house!! I now have a HUGE sewing room. I still have a lot of stuff to put away, but that hasn't stopped me from sewing up some fun new things like this sleep top by

And this sleep set also from

And not one but two swim suits!

Then there was a little 'oops' with a dress that didn't quite fit

But I still love it!

And then a bright and colorful dress and leggings 

And through all of this I've had looming over me a wedding on Saturday with a semi-formal dress code...

So now I'm trying to put something amazing together :)

I know I know I should have started earlier but I wasn't feeling inspired. Last night I forced myself to look through my fabric and patterns. I found a nice party dress pattern and then came across a roll of purple taffeta in my stash. Ok, I thought, that's a dress. But as I pulled out the taffeta I spotted a bolt of silver and green knit lace and everything changed!  Gone was the idea to go with a fitted 50's style party dress. As I held up this fabric and it started to drape I knew I had to do something loose flowy and different. 

Of course there is nothing in my 3000+ pattern stash that exactly fits what I want so... For yet another wedding I'm designing something all my own. Can't wait to see how it turns out!
