Blogged Down!

I created two blogs, and to separate sewing from artsy/quilting/misc. projects of mine, and to document each independent of the other.   Not working for me.  what to do?  what to do??? 

Fabric for Chloe's Summer Wardrobe

It's almost June and although summer is just around the corner, the weather has been cold and windy, even when the sun is shining.  Chloe is my l'il granddaughter and I have been working on a summer wardrobe for her.  Yesterday we went to M&L Discount Fabrics in Buena Park, California.  It's a one-hour trip from home and one of my favorite stops.  The fabrics in these pictures are all 100% cotton with prices ranging from $3.98 to $4.98 per yard.  I'll be pre-shrinking fabric next week.  These will be fun to sew up into something sweet and sassy.

Getting rid of my stash...Slipper Disaster

So I have this slipper pattern which I've had in my binder for years, which I downloaded for free from...I can't remember where.   In the spirit of using up my fabric stash, VOILA...a slipper! Christine's Critique:  I rushed the process for no good reason, with not-so-good results.   It does not fit, it does not fit, it does not fit!  In fact, this prototype would fit Hobbit feet very well.  Why oh why do we not take time, go slower, enjoy the moment?  Darn! I still want to make slippers! I have another pattern...
