At what point does sewing become an addiction? Is it when you have piles and piles of fabric everywhere but continue to buy more? Is it when you have hundreds of PDF patterns that you haven’t gotten a chance to sew up yet? Could it possibly be when you take a trip and you pack more fabric than clothes?
It’s been a while since I posted. Let me explain…we’ve been traveling for the last six weeks!
Week one was couch surfing in Nashville while we emptied out the storage unit and had a yard sale. I had fabric and notions and books that I hadn’t even seen in over two years! So that all got sold. I keep all of my prettiest fabrics with me 🙂 I did dig through and find some things to keep.
Weeks two and three were spent camping in Texas while the hubby worked on his hunting cabin. Luckily he knows that his wife loves electricity and indoor plumbing. This is the same cabin we worked on in April. It has an awesome pedestal tub that I’ve partly restored. (I’ll finish it on our next trip out there.)
I was able to set up a little work station and make a baby gift for a friend! I could only work on little projects due to the lack of table space. Next time I am going to try to pack my cutting and sewing tables and take over a small corner of the cabin! I think this Violet turned out adorable! You should add this pattern to your baby gift arsenal if you sew. So quick and cute! This pattern ranges from size 3 months up to girls size 12 so you will get lots of years of use out of it. I made this one long sleeves since it may still be chilly outside when it fits her.
For the last three weeks we have been staying on a ranch in New Mexico. It is gorgeous out here. It is much cooler than southern Florida so it’s a good thing I packed more fabric than clothes because I need to make myself some more long sleeved shirts. I made this Hyde Park Hoodie last weekend after realizing that I hadn’t packed my gray one. The coral has more of a southwest feel anyway.
This hoodie is the perfect weight for the few cold days that southern Florida gets in the winter.
I’m will be testing a new sewing pattern next week so that will be next week’s post. Meanwhile I am enjoying my current view from the sewing table 🙂
