Marathon Monday

Hello there! Today in Boston, it's Marathon Monday. I didn't run the marathon, but instead I had a sewing marathon! I sewed the Builty By Wendy top (the one everyone in the world has made already) and it came out so cute! I used a cotton gauze fabric from Joann's. I'm really happy with the way it came out and I even have the perfect jewelry to wear with it :-)

During the week I sewed up this simple, elastic waist skirt using my Katie Jump Rope fabric. This also came out really cute, so it's been a fantastic week sewing wise!

So, am I the last blogger on earth to find out about bloglines? I subscribed to all the blogs I like (75 of them!) and now it's so much quicker and easier to find and read new posts. It's cut the time I spend (waste?) on the computer by a lot! So, I'm planning to use the extra time to sew! I have a bunch of quick, little projects lined up, so look for some more frequent updating. Yes, I know, I say that every post and I still only post once a week. I'm trying!!! I've been very motivated this week by the spring weather we have been having here in the Northeast. Not only did I sew 2 garments, but I spring cleaned my house and it's sparkling! I hope you are enjoying this spring weather too!

I love the fabric of that skirt. It turned out great! Can't wait to see what else you whip up.

Yeah subscribing to blogs is the way to go. I wouldn't get anything made if I had to check blogs for new posts.

Very cute top and skirt! :)

Yes, I don't like to remember my life before Bloglines, but I was welded to my laptop, and I only ever seem to subscribe to more...
