Back sewing

This is the reason why I haven't been sewing for over a year! Georgia was born on Christmas Day 2010. She is an absolute joy to have and a very placid, easy baby.

I have almost got back to the size I was B.G. and I am itching to get sewing again. I love a SWAP (Sewing With a Plan) and I have been inspired to join the Artisan Square 6 piece Autumn Wardrobe sew along. The idea is that you sew 2 garments a month in August, September and October, all of which coordinate to form a mix and match wardrobe. Georgia goes to bed at around 6.30pm so I am hoping that this should be completely do-able. I am returning to work in September so I am planning a "career wardrobe". I have chosen 5 fabrics so far:

The two on the left are for skirts, the white is an Italian shirting, the black is a spotted chiffon for a tie neck blouse and the blue is a stretch wool mix for a tailored jacket. I still need one more fabric for another top but I will decide on that later.

Now I need to venture up into the loft for my patterns.....


  1. Congratualtion for you adorable baby. Thanks for mentioning the Autumn Wardrobe sew along I may take part if it is not too late I desesperately need some nice clothes for next fall

  2. You mention your dress form, but I couldn't find a picture of it. What kind is it?

  3. HI Georgia! You're so pretty. Nice smile.

  11. Beautiful baby! I don't know if there will be new posts to this blog but if so, would you consider adding the gadget to allow subscription via email? Being disabled, I don't get to spend a lot of time online so it is much easier when new posts come right to my inbox. I love the fabric you used for your jacket in the post below the first post and the lining is superb. Gorgeous.

  12. Welcome back Catherine and good luck in your future project.

  13. I just tried commenting on your other blog (the white top with pintucks) and found commenting was restricted to blogger users. Can't see an email address or contact from anywhere so I'm leaving this here "This is absolutely beautiful. I didn't notice that pattern at all till I saw your version-the pintucks on the white background are perfect. Keep rockin'"

  14. That is a very wonderful reason to fall behind on all your work. A baby is so much work. She is super cute and worth every bit of behind work.

    From the Garden of Eden to the present there has been God's truth and Satan's lies.

    GOD'S TRUTH: Genesis 2:17 "but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die."(NKJV)

    SATAN'S LIE: Genesis 3:4 And the serpent said to the woman, "You will not surely die.(NKJV)

    GOD'S TRUTH: Matthew 28:1-7....6 "He is not here He is risen....7.....He is risen from the dead....(NKJV)

    SATAN'S LIE: Matthew 28:11-15.....12 When they had assembled with the elders and taken counsel, they gave a large sum of money to the soldiers, 13 saying , "Tell them, 'His disciples came at night and stole Him away while we slept.'....(NKJV)

    Today there are men telling God's truth, however, there are others who spreading Satan's lies.

    GOD'S TRUTH: Mark 16:16 "He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.(NKJV)

    SATAN'S LIE: He who does not believe will not be condemned; because there are many ways to be saved other than believing in Jesus.

    SATAN'S LIE: He who believes is saved by faith only and should be immersed in water as a testimony of faith.

    SATAN'S LIE: Water baptism is not essential to the forgiveness of sins; because baptism is a work of man.

    SATAN'S LIE: Good works save us, believing and being baptized do not save us.

    SATAN'S LIE: Men are saved by grace alone, God forces men to have faith so they can be saved by faith only.

    SATAN' LIE: Men need to be immersed in water to join the denomination of their choice, however, they do not need to be baptized in order to go to heaven
