Random Post & Updates

Where do I start?
I am getting my son ready for college; he will be leaving home next month.
My sewing laboratory looks like it was hit by a tornado; I am doing a bit of cleaning up.
I sewed a white cropped jacket, more about that later.
I have been working on muslin for the past few months, I am a slowwwww sewer and after speaking to Sheila I am not going to make any other muslin. I will tweak the fit as needed.
I started working on a quilt; more about that later.
Home dec projects, more about that later.
Holiday projects; more later

Preparing your son for college is a lot of work, but so worth it. As we discussed, wear the muslin, even if its just around the house and you will get a better idea on what needs to be tweaked. As I mentioned I am still trying to grasp the perfect fit or as close as I can get and feel I can only improve as I wear the garment. Hence, my multiple garments from one pattern... lol

You have a lot on your plate woman. I agree with Sheila that getting your son prepared for college is a lot of work but will be well worth it.

In my case, I always make a muslin (due to my fit issues) which allows me to see the issues clearer. I just finished a muslin of a tunic dress (an OOP Vogue Michael Kors pattern). I hope to start cutting it out in white and turquoise linen this weekend. I will more than likely do some couture finishing on this garment.
