Well not a whole lot of nothing is going on!!! Life has gotten ahold of me and things have been so busy. I came down with the flu and haven’t been doing too much.
Also my boss retired at work and we are still in transition (meaning, I got a bunch more work for no extra pay or rewar). Thus meaning working through lunch instead of sewing 😦
But I have been thinking about sewing a lot, I mean a lot.
One perk is that depending upon the project I am working on, I can sometimes listen to some sewing podcasts or listen to my favorite you tube videos. I can’t watch the you tube, but I listen.
Soooooo what have I been listening to, you ask??
Love to Sew Podcast: Lovetosewpodcast.com
This podcast is great! It is Helen Wilkinson from Helen’s Closet (which I love my Blackwood Caridigan, and Caroline Somos. I love this podcast. I think I have listened to each one. My favorite is when they talk about their sewing summer camp experience. But I think I found a new favorite. Mimi G. They just interviewed Mimi G (who is great!). If you haven’t heard it you need to check it out over at Love To Sew.
My favorite on You Tube right now: Thatsewingblab.com
That Sewing Blab hosted by Dawn from Duelling Designs and Myra who has instragram and blog at One Sew Sweet. They just had their interview with Elizabeth from Elizabeth Makes This regarding the Day and Night Challenge. I have watched almost all of their interviews. I think my favorite so far has been Kenneth King!
What am I Reading? The last stitch.com
I am reading Sewing Activewar by Johanna Lu. I got my copy off of Amazon. She wrote this book herself and it is great. If you work with knits, it is so helpful. I believe I am about half way through the book and am finding it so helpful. Johanna also has some great You Tube videos and was also recently on both Love to Sew Podcast and That Sewing Blab.
Whats up next?
Well I am trying to participate in the Sew My Style 2018. I purchased that Kalle dress from Closet Case Patterns. Taped the PDF pattern, made adjustments and cut it out. That is as far as I got.
Hopefully nextweek I will have a better update for you!!
