Working on...

Hi all!  Happy weekend :)

I thought I'd share what I've been *slowly* working on... Getting back into the groove as the summer winds down.

First, I've fallen deeply in love with all of the DIY bracelets that have been popping up all over the place!  Here are some of my favorites:

So being a proud child of the 80's I decided to try my hand at the chevron friendship bracelet.  I literally could NOT wrap my head around it at first - for 80's shaaaaame!!  But it came back to me and it's coming along nicely now:

Don't look to close at the top there :O  Yeesh...

And I'm almost done with Simplicity 2593.  I'm making the version with all the foldy business around the neck, and my hands are aching with Lymie arthritis just thinking about the hand sewing.  Ugh.  But I really wanted to challenge myself to do this, and so far I love it!

Just needs side seams, a hem and the foldy business.  Should be done today!
The fabric, fyi, is a delicious, wash AND dry-able stretch rayon from  It looks like they're out of this color, but they still have it in pink and coral!  For $3.49 a yard, people!!!  GO!  I have the coral too and can attest to its' gorgitude.

And soon I'm going to start on this precious little number:

I'll be sewing view B, the overalls!  CUTE!

I'm using this suuuuper fine, lightweight corduroy.  Isn't it amazing!?  I love the large print... I think they're going to be so adorable.  It's a size 2 which I think is going to be pretty big for Emskie, but I'm just going to take a really deep hem on the legs so she can grow into them.  Yay.  :)

This fabric can be lusted after - here.  :D

So that's that!  Hope yall have a great rest of the weekend with lots of sewing and planning involved!
