Secret projects

At times there is not a lot one can show... I am still sewing but...

There are three dresses to be made, but two are bridesmaid's dresses, so must remain under wraps until the day, one is a prom dress, which must remain under.... You get it!

Some of this may be involved!


Because I was making all these- with a bit of help from DD1 I trust!- I treated myself to a new gizmo...



This little darling will make putting an invisible zip in a complete doddle!  I know, I have tried it! I am able to do it with a standard zip foot, but this one is like magic!




BUT! I have another secret project which I can tempt you with!

Do you know the Black Sheep?  It is a craft barn not far from where i live, and mainly sells all things yarn... silk and wool and bamboo blends, knitting needles and crochet hooks and so on and so forth. They also sell tapestry and embroidery stuff, and fairly recently, in the last year or so, they have branched out into quilting cottons. So, they now have a delicious collection of designer fabrics, all sitting beautifully on shelves, and in little packs of fat quarters, with some jelly rolls and so on to mix in.
They also have zips and buttons, and thread, and really too much option for those of us who like to sew.

And they have allowed a few of us to invite ourselves in, to play amongst their fabrics, for a super little mini sewing bee next week!
So I plan to be there with a few bloggy friends to have fun amongst the fabrics, and make a small something whilst chatting and playing!

see you there girls!  Roll on the 10th!

ohh that dress fabric looks great - though tit's not a colour I could wear, but it's a reall great colour for a wedding and much much better than pink or lavendar ...
Congrat son the new gizmo - I generally don't get any because it would mean I woudl have to decide which one to get and figure out how to use it ... and I don't think I made for more than basic straight and zig-zag if it can't be avoided ...
But speaking of the gizmo - as you own a serger - what is important to look for in them - my parental unit handed me the task of finding an ok serger for her ("you know all those sewing people put them to some use") I'm lookign forward to all sorts of jam and a complete winter's supply of onions in return for any advice I gather on the net ...

Ooooh, snazzy new foot!
Hope the projects are going well - it feels like it's been far too long!

I agree! it feels too long!
The foot is fabulous! I love it! If you haven't got one- you need it on a wish list!
