SSS Day 22 and 23

SSS 22

Well, here I am on Wednesday, September 22nd, on my way out the door to the library, of all places, to pick up holds that my DD2 had put on…. wait for it…. Hannah Montana stuff.  😮  I also had an interview with DD2’s new teacher to see how she’s fitting in at her new school this year.

Cardi-wrap and tank:  Simplicity 2603 again with capris from Lands End and shoes from Town Shoes.   BTW, I wanted to share a picture of my little Nuggett trying to figure out the Simplicity cardigan pattern layout.

isn't he just so darn cute?!?

He’s so funny.  Every time I sit down to sew, he thinks I want to play.  So he drags all his toys and sits at my feet and yelps when I get up to press something and inadvertently step on his little feet.  He’s been in our house since April – you’d think he’d know better by now!  And don’t you love all the scissors holding the pattern piece in place?  I was just too damn lazy to pin the entire thing, so I used my shears collection as pattern weights!

Day 23:

Well, this morning I worked on a headboard cover.  Yup.  A headboard cover.  My first ever foray into the world of home decor.  I must say, sewing 1/2″ diameter piping is not a piece of cake, especially around corners.  I was asked to put this together for a lady in our church who’s redecorating a room for her granddaughter.   I finished it up this evening, and will drop it off tomorrow.  Hopefully I can get a picture so you can see it tomorrow.

Anyhow….  Since the best radio station in Toronto with a Weather Guarantee said it would be 21°C today, I decided I’d wear my “Oh, Susannah” Liberty dress in Vogue 8469.  You can read my review here, since this was prior to the start of my blogging.   And off I went to read with my little guys at school this afternoon.

By the way, I’m wearing Lisa’s purple earrings again!  These are very comfy and unusual and pretty and subtle and unique.  I think that about describes all aspects of them nicely! 🙂  Oh, and did I mention they’re PURPLE!?!?!?!

  1. I just found your blog yesterday via your comment to Sewaholic. I’ll have to venture west to the Woodbridge Fabricland – I live in Richmond Hill and have been going to Fabricland in Newmarket and Markham . Your sewing skills, your outfits and your photos are inspiring – I’m now following your PR reviews. Once I finish sewing my DD’s and DS’s Hallowe’en costumes – then it’ll be sewing for ME!
