Sew Paradise


Stamp a big ole DONE stamp on that bag of projects, ’cause I finished ’em all!

Woo hoo!

I’m not even sure I remember the final tally but here’s a shot:

four black and white batik pillow covers

denim coatdres – BWoF 6/04 issue

Hot Patterns Sugar Babe jacket – purple linen blend

cap sleeve tunic BWoF 7/08 issue

Lavender baby dress – androsia from Bahamas (batik)

Brown baby dress and bloomer pants

Brown sarong tunic

Red print dress – Elizabeth Lee Nursing Classics 307 view 2

Whew! Is that a list or what? My first thought is “is that all?” but I sewed at least two hours a day for almost 13 days straight. I’ve had a blast, and contrary to what you might think, I’m already thinking of the NEXT projects to sew!

Tomorrow I clip them all to the umbrella and take a group photo. I’ll also have hubs take a shot of me in the denim coatdress. Which came out superbly.

How’d the whole vacation go? Wonderfully! I sewed, I played, I relaxed and I hardly thought about work at all. I contemplated being a SAHM (but only if my mother comes to live with me so I don’t have to cook and clean, LOL). But I’ll be back to work on Monday (in my new denim coatdress!)

I'm Ann. I've been sewing since I was 9. My first project was a denim wrap skirt. Thrifting is a way of life for me - both eco-chic and financially savvy.
