I know it's been more than a year....



I know.  It's been more than a year since I've posted anything.  I've been quite remiss, and I accept my failure.

It's been a busy year I guess.  Not to try to cover it all, just some highlights:

We sold our house and moved to a condo in late spring. We are in the process of designing a new house and once that's done, we will move again (ugh on the moving part).

I only did one show this year with the move and it was a great success.  It was a show I've done for several years and each year seems to get better.  I don't know if I will do it next yeat - kind of depends on the house building schedule.

My essential oil cases have taken off  - you can check them out in my Etsy shop - so that's pretty much all I've been making

Archer Sew-Along by Sew MarisI decided to take a class this fall at a local art college - it's on pattern making.  It's been quite fun so far - we all got measured and made a skirt sloper (base pattern) based on those measurements.  We are to the point of making a muslin and adjusting the pattern.  I haven't decided yet what my real skirt will be,

But my friend Jane (you can find her blog here) invited me to participate with along with her and some others on the Sew Maris Grainline Archer Sew-a-long.  You can find the blog here and there is a facebook group also.

So I think I will try to make a skirt that will go along with my new shirt.  I got three fabrics for shirts (because I couldn't decide on one) but I know which fabric I want to coordinate with, so I will have to see what I can find for the skirt.

I'm not busy at all (did I mention I was going on a girls week vacation this month?)

Happy Sewing!
Susan

Hi Susan,

I'm glad you are doing the Archer! Are you making a muslin for that? I'm probably going to be lazy and not do it since I don't have a dress form and I think it will be hard to fit to the level David describes. I didn't know you started your class. When you are making the muslin and adjusting, is someone adjusting it for you while it's on your body?
