Not sewing...

| No Comments

My sewing machine is in the shop.  I'm lost.

 

 

Today I cut some things out.  Not good enough.  I've been listening to Chumped.  That helps a tiny bit.

 

 

 

BINGO in March

| No Comments

Still no BINGO for me.  Seriously.  I have been sewing alot (except for when I was sick), but I haven't been focused on the BINGO.  Oh well.  Also, I fell off the wagon bought a bunch of fabric.  Not cool.

 

Here's the Polaris Bag.  It's the March Bag of The Month.  Pattern by Sew Sweetness.

One GIANT UFO done!

Sometime, in the way back, I bought a 7" record by a band called Reason to Believe.  I love that 7" to this day.  It's called The Next Door.  Maybe you remember when I posted about finding the 7" at Chain Reaction?  And when I posted a photo 'cause I was so stoked to find it (even though I still own mine).  

January Bag of The Month and BINGO cont.

Here's my January Bag of The Month.  I used some of my stash - the old Ragnar Mad Mod line - one of my favorites.

 

I now have 2 squares colored in on my Patterns BINGO card.

 

Pepernoot Hooded Coat Complete!

I spent a lot of time the past two nights finishing my coat.  The exterior is corduroy and as I was working the dye was staining my fingers.  What!?  So, today it's been washed and soaked and extra rinsed like crazy.  Hopefully it will be leaky no more when I take it out of the dryer.

 

 

BINGO - Let's Go! Also, Pepernoot Part 4

I started my Patterns BINGO Card.  The squares that I am currently working on are outlined.  When that project is complete, the square will be filled in.  Even though I started the Pepernoot Hooded Coat last year, I decided I would still use it as a BINGO project.  The Betz White pattern I am working on is the Backgammon Bag, and it is the January Bag Of The Month.

 

 

Hooded Pepernoot Coat Part 3

It's starting to look like a coat finally!  It's awesome.  I sewed the bodice pieces to the bottom pieces, then shoulder seams and side seams.  Next up, I need to get some interfacing bonded on.  I also have not even cut out the lining.  I'm feeling good.  I haven't sewed anything in 2 weeks or so.

Sewing BINGO rules – Sarah’s Way

The Game - There are 6 BINGO cards.  I intend on working on them beginning with my first project of 2016.  I am choosing (at this moment) to not overlap the projects.  So, even if I am using scraps and making a garment from a Peek-a-Boo Pattern, I am only going to block off a box on one of the cards – EITHER the Pattern Card or the Stash Card but not both.  I hope to only make things that appear on the cards for all of 2016.

 

31 Days... Things I learned

| No Comments

I learned that this challenge was too much for me.  I feel like a total failure.  BUT it's ok!  If you remember, I got a free copy of Zach Anner's book If At Birth You Don't Succeed,  I finished reading it yesterday, and I put up a review on Goodreads.  Free books are cool.  Writing for the public everyday, not so much.
