Summer Sewing


My resident photographers have returned from their various trips. One from a business trip to Houston, another from Church Camp and rafting in WV, and the last from a 10 day trip to AZ, UT and NE with a friend. Me, I stayed home with DMIL and went to work as usual. These are the items mentioned in my last post. I have made several tops and skirts for my summer SWAP since then. More on those later. I just finished moving all my sewing photos from Yahoo Photo, which is shutting down in Sept., to Flicker. What a pain. I have to figure out how to set up new links to Flicker on my Blog sidebar. I also have to start putting together my presentation for this Saturday's Sewing Guild meeting. I am showing the "Line and Underlining in One Step" technique from Shannon Gifford article in Threads magazine, March 2004, Issue 111. I took her on line class on Pattern Review and made a reversible white eyelet jacket lined/underlined in red. It was a fun technique. I presented this topic before at another Neighborhood group meeting, and wouldn't you know it, threw out my samples.

Love that green jacket! Is the meeting this Saturday? I thought it was next Saturday - have to go check my calendar!

Love the gingham jacket - is the trim just gathered and then stitched?

Vicki, I just checked the calendar and you are right. Mtg is not for another week. Great.

Laura, I plan to post some picture and info on making the ruched border on the jacket. Just have to download the pictures from the camera.

This is the BWOF jacket, right? I couldn't quite figure out the whole trim business to save my life. It looks lovely!
