Last Lap



This is going to be a short post. There are five more days to sew for the 2008 SWAP. I will make the deadline. On Wed. evening I finally made a decision on the pattern for my SWAP jacket. It is Vogue 2919, an Anne Klein design. I have been sewing all weekend and right now I am pretty tired. But the jacket is complete except for some top stitching and two hook closures. And I whipped up a easy knit top using a older New Look pattern, 6779. I have one other top cut out and partially sewn. I need to think about how I am going to get the garments photographed this coming weekend. What enticing bribes I can use get assistance from my three resident photographers? For the oldest son, a promise to take him out driving. He got his learners permit this weekend. Youngest son is easy, homemade chocolate chip cookies, DH, mmm I have to think about that one.
