I Am Still Around

 I have been in a funk for several weeks now. The last item I sewed was a robe for our trip we took in early April.  We had a great time visiting family and friends. I almost find I am a little homesick.

With inflation and the rise and fall of the stock market, my husband's increase in medication costs has taken a bite out of our financial situation. I have refrained from buying fabric, I don't really need more, but I do still want some new pieces. I have purchased a couple of patterns from Itch to Stich and recently one from So Sew English.

I am actually starting to get the urge to sew. I am now working on the SSE pattern, Florence top, and dress. I have some difficulty with getting the right size printed and printed the bodice piece twice. I am between so many sizes and using their sizing guide helps but it was too big in some areas and just right in others. Every indie pattern company has differing sizes plus most are designed for a much taller person than I.

I was surprised to see I have not posted anything since March. I had planned to post about the robe and will do that in the near future. The near future may mean more than a couple of days or weeks.

More later!


  1. Med and insurance costs are horrendous - I feel the pinch as well. Sending a hug, loved hearing from you.

 On to the next project. I made this pattern previously. I made View C.  I wear the top frequently though I feel it is a little large on me....
