I’m still here

For those of you who don’t knit you may or may not know of Ravelry.  It’s a new online community for knitters, crocheters and fiber fanatics and it consumes your every spare moment.  I got my invite last month and have uploaded 47 yarn group pics of my stash, completed 4 projects and started several new ones.   Okay now that my fiber talk is out the way, we can focus on fabric. I did complete my latest baby quilt and the couple was really happy to recieve it.    

I have also decided to start garment sewing for myself so this will be my quilting and sewing page.  I have been looking at Erica B’s blog for around a year now and have always been a fan of her sewing and have found others through her blog and by searching for sewing podcasts.  One person I have come to enjoy following is Carolyn her sewing has inspired me to not give up my dream of sewing for myself.  As a plus size petite lady it’s hard to find clothing that fits well and suits that the back section doesn’t have that annoying bubble in the middle of the back.    I purchased some fabric for my SWAP  that stands for Sewing With a Purpose.  The concept behind that is to plan out your sewing that you end up with a coordinating wardrobe.   This idea appealed to me so much so that I began looking for some patterns and material that would work for some existing items already in my wardrobe and thinking of items I needed to add.    I purchased Simplicity patterns 4881 and 4877 both of which have 6 variations.
