A blog about my adventures in sewing & crafting

Dear Hubby has returned to work. Night shift for the next three months!  The first night I just messed around in the sewing room.  Put away items, looked at my beautiful fabric, thought about all the things I've missed in there.  The second night I made two skirts!

I made a yoga waist black jersey knit skirt for me and a maxi skirt for Dear Daughter.

I also made a cap sleeve knit shirt in a brown and pink jersey knit.  Since these won't be my colors in a few months I might as well wear it now.

This is just my TNT pattern, nothing new here.

 The shirt turned out great.  I will need to size down a little next time.  Maybe it was because there was so much stretch in the knit or I could have lost a pound or two...... Who knows?

I think my next project is going to be a knit tank dress, sleeveless, knee length, in a print/color that I won't be able to wear for long...........

Until next time...............



  1. Glad too see you're sewing for DD again-did she ever retrieve the beautiful shorts you made for her? Sorry about making you choke on your coffee with my comment on your last post- rather rude of me. I love the brown and pink top.

    1. You're reply was a very "colorful" description, not rude! Dear daughter is wearing the shorts I made her. She doesn't even fuss anymore about them, but I did learn my lesson too. I have worn the brown & pink top three times already, getting my wear out of it before it makes me look yucky.

  2. Well haven't you been the busy bee. You go girl!
