Susan Khalje and Peplum top update

Inspiration comes in many forms when it comes to sewing.  Many of us sometimes hit a sewing block, loss of sewing mojo being between seasons, etc.  Our local ASG had Susan Khalje as a presenter at our sewing meeting this past Thursday.  That was a real treat and pleasure.  She presented for about two hours and we got to see some nice samples of her week; many of which I remember seeing in Threads but so nice to see up front and personal.  After that I felt even more energized to sew and have taken advantage of brief moments of sewing when longer periods have not been available since the class. Meaning I also have gotten away from TV and games on the iPad!!

I took advantage of several brief periods of sewing time yesterday before and after work to sew the Simplicity peplum top I am working on.  All fitting adjustments were made and the pattern instructions are so very easy to follow.  I have sewn side backs and side fronts together and sewn the peplum piece to both.  I just finished basting the front piece to front side piece and will do the same with the back soon.

I will post photos soon.  Now I have to go fix breakfast and have some outdoor activities to participate in today; we having such nice warm as well as hot weather of late---LOVE IT!

  2. Finding time to sew is difficult - I often do bits here and there, its sometimes the only way to get the job done. Lucky you having such a speaker.
