August Plans
I'm finished with summer sewing, but not ready to sew for fall/winter, so I'm kind of in limbo.
I'll start on my skirt draft in preparation for making pants for cool weather.
And work on Riley's quilt and hopefully finish it this month.
Also, look though the UFO basket and see if there's anything I want to work on.
And maybe work on some quilts.


  1. Very Nice--I especially like the Kimono Jacket. Love the fabric and the style.

  2. Great job, I really like your lace jacket, your shirts and that t-shirt dress. Fall is my favorite season to sew except that here in FL fall last for about a week in January! Can't wait to see what you'll sew up next!
