On a quilting group I'm on we have been talking about sharing photos of our sewing rooms. I have shared mine before but I don't think I've shared since Dan made my awesome new cutting table. I also rearranged my sewing room a few weeks ago. This layout works much better for me and makes the room feel like it is bigger. I've always been opposed to having my back to the door but I told myself to suck it up and do it. Well it's fine. I don't know why I had an issue with it but issue resolved. This is the view from outside the door looking in. Wee Little Stitches I can not say enough good things about their patterns and customer service.

Well, I got it together and snapped a photo of the finished project that I gave you a sneak peek of a few weeks ago. Please ignore the fact that the room still needs the top trim put up and I will not admit it has needed that put up for about the last 9 years, oopps! It is getting done this winter! I swear! Anyways.....

Ooooopps. I complexly missed posting in October. Thats ok. I got into a sewing slump. Who knows why, they just hit me once in awhile. I had caught a couple of stomach flus from the grand baby and that didn't help and I also was diagnosed with another ailment so I spent time learning about it and learning another new way of eating. That wasn't too overwhelming as I was pretty prepared from having to overhaul my life when I had to go gluten free. I'm still learning and will probably have to be on different meds to help, but that is the way it goes some times. But, I have really gotten back to my sewing in the last couple of weeks an am able to share some awesome work and patterns with you. I was super excited when a pattern designer put out the call for pattern testers for like 6 new patterns and can you believe 4 of those were for boys!? Talk about super exciting. She is really breaking out with new patterns for the boys and this is super exciting as there is a huge lack of patterns for them in the market place. I love her designs because she makes it so you can embellish and change things how you would like. She calls them Blank Slate Patterns Seriously, go check them out. I had the pleasure of testing the Trendy Tuxedo Pants, Trendy Tuxedo Shirt, The Holiday Pajamas, and The Saddle Shoulder Polo Pattern which I don't see up for sale yet but you should jump on it when it does come up because it is such a fantastic pattern. I love it and it is a new favorite for me to make for my grandson now. This is my Holiday Pajamas. You will notice it is not in holiday fabrics. I used some I had on hand and can you believe I have not been able to find any holiday fabrics yet? I will be making a couple of stops later today to see if I can find some, fingers crossed.
