Not in Love

Well, I am just not in love with the idea of making the Folklore Bag. First, I'm already starting to think about spring fabrics and colors so sewing with corduroy is just not inspiring me. Plus I haven't really loved any of the ones I have seen made up. I'm heading to Florida at the end of the week so I'm hoping to pick up some fabric there to make a spring bag. I love the canvas fabrics at Joann's so I think I'll look there. And I have a million patterns for bags that I have either made and loved or really want to make, so I'll choose from one of them.

I got an order from - 2 pretty blue knits. Since I dragged out my serger and practiced on it, I think it's time to try a top or two. I also reorganized my fabric and sewing closet and found the blue poplin I bought at Mood Fabrics in NYC. So now I have 3 blue tops planned. I've been reading some blogs where the authors are working on their personal style and I love that idea. I always like to change my look or update a bit during the transition from winter to spring. I don't have time to add the links or photos right now, but in my next post I'll show you my fabrics and patterns that I plan to use and link to the blogs I just mentioned. And hopefully I'll have some things to show off once I'm back from Florida! :)

I wanted to thank you for taking the time to enter my Sew Mama Sew Giveaway. It was so crazy with so many blogs to visit that I don't think very many of us really had a chance to really take a good look at the blogs we visit. So I would like to invite you to come back and look around and see if you like my blog; and if you do, consider signing up as a follower and/or putting my blog on your blog roll so that you can keep up with me better. I would also encourage you to visit my daughters' blogs. Emily, Age 9, of Super Stitches and Kimberly, Age 17, of What To Wear

By the way, you have a lovely blog. I love your aprons. I have that same pattern.

I looking forward to hearing from you.
