Sewing Side Saddle:

We have a Juki Machine up in the store for those who wish to try one out or purchase, Come by and try one out! I'm just today putting in the newest QVP 2200 MINI which is the current Straight stitch machine. 

But, while I was working in the store Saturday, I sat down to sew a few quick seams. BAM! My knees, I realized quickly, do not fit under the desk!

 

HAHAHA!  

This is not the first time this has happened to me... (Reminds me fondly of teaching in Japan!with giggles all around. ) 

 

My assistants come in and say, "Well we fit just fine!"   

 

Yes, I am a bit long-leggedy.

 

;-)

 

I was finishing up some QUILT MARKET PREP for my next new line coming out in January.  I can't show you the whole thing yet, But I can say the back looks lovely!  Love those seams all pressed own and flat!

 I also made myself a new skirt for Fall Quilt Market, using my Black and White Manor Stripe fabric ( in my webshop and store) and some Black Solid from Marcus fabrics!

 

(HEY! DID YOU NOTICE I HAVE MARCUS SOLIDS IN MY SHOP NOW?  $5 a yard!!)

 

Now before you start asking me for a pattern, know this...

I don't use patterns for clothing...  

I learned very young to make clothing to fit myself, and I make it up as I go... So, I'm afraid, no pattern.  

 

I'm pretty thrilled with this skirt, I think it is very "ME."

 

Did you have a great sewing weekend? I'd love your comments, to see who is switching and finding my new blog info here... Thanks!

Hi Victoria! I have added this feed to my Feedly too … I do love the name of your Bumble Beans blog though – it makes me smile!

Hi Victoria ~ I’m here at your new spot, but don’t know how to receive emails from here. Can’t locate a sign-up spot on this page. I love your new skirt; how wonderful to not need a pattern! ~ Laurie in California

No sewing this weekend, but I did get a quick stop at a LQS. Now that little bag of goodies is sitting on my counter, waiting for me to get caught up from being gone all weekend so I can get to my sewing machine! Do I really need to eat, and pay bills? Can’t I just quilt?? :-)
