Here is Rachelle and I with the store owner. She was a lot of fun.
Here I am wearing a maxi skirt I made the previous weekend
The weekend was a lot a fun. I got home around 6:30pm on Saturday and at 8pm my DD decided that she wanted to sew a maxi skirt. This was her first sewing project. As a good mom I taught her how to cut and sew a simple maxi skirt, two hours later the skirt was done. I was exhausted, however I got up Sunday morning renewed and ready to go. I hope everyone had a great weekend.

Ms Faye presented me with the LIEBSTER BLOG AWARD. Thank you Faye.
The reason for the award is to recognize and promote other blogs. I enjoy reading sewing blogs so it will be very easy for me to nominate other blogs for the awesome award.
CENNETTA- I have a followed this beautiful lady blog for probably five years. Her sewing skills gets better with every garment that she makes. The inside of her finished garment are absolutely beautiful. I also enjoy the recipes and craft project that she post on her blog.
TOY- I enjoy Toy's video post regarding pattern collection; she compares the pattern from the big 4, and at times shows how the pattern companies tweak the pattern and presented as though is was a new design. She used beautiful print fabrics to create awesome dresses.
MIMI- All I can say is to check her blog out. She is stylish, down to earth and kind. She shares sewing knowledge by posting great tutorials and most important she encourages beginner sewers to jump right into the sewing game by posting easy peasy tutorials.
ADRIENNE- I enjoy Adrienne's blog. My favorite post are the ones that includes recipes and sewing projects.
SHEILA - This one another one of my favorite blogs. Sheila sews timeless garments. Her style is classic, timeless with a twist of modern; one of my favorite garment that Sheila made was the matrix leather dress. In addition to sewing she makes pretty crochet sweaters, cards and other craft items.

This is my version of the maxi skirt. It only took about 1-hour to sew maybe a little more. I bought the fabric at Jo-Anns two weeks ago. The fabric is cotton with maybe rayon. It feels like silk, its soft and has a nice drape.
I love the color blocking trend, although I seemed to be gravitating to softer colors.
Movie- Think Like A Man Act Like A Woman. This was a fun movie, In my opinion young single women should go see this movie. Here I am leaving the theater.
1. Migraines- I am feeling much better, no migraines. I cannot believe that it took 3-weeks to get a relief.
2. Bulging disc in my neck- I am doing much better, I have two more weeks of physical therapy and hopefully that will be the end of that.
3. Black jacket for the Donna Karan skirt- work in progress.
