Happy New Year!

Hello fellow sewists!  I haven't blogged in a long time.  I've been checking in on everyone else's post.  You guys are so talented!  I began my term as ASG President with a retreat for the elected CAB and Liaisons.  We went to the New Windsor Conference Center for 2 days.  Saturday was all business.  We accomplished a lot.  That evening, and on Sunday, we sewed til our hearts content.  I really love my sewing friends in ASG.  We have lots of fun sewing-related events planned.  If you don't know about us, check out our site:

This silver silk jersey top was drafted in Wildginger.  I purchased the fabric at A Fabric Place on Falls Rd , Baltimore.  It is soooo soft and slightly irredescent.  I applied crystals to the front because I made a tiny hole in it when I was trying to take out the dart.  It turned out really great!Donald, Thanks for taking the pics.

My husband bought me this really nice serger trolley for Christmas!

 We got must more snow this weekend that the weather man called for so this is what my husband, Donald, and I did.  Recovered our kitchen chairs.  I cut out the fabric and Donald covered the chairs and put them back together!  We used fabric left over from the fabric I used to make my curtains (see pic below), 4 years ago.  I found it in my stash.  They look great in the kitchen. 
Lots of sewing project looming in 2010:

1) thirteen marching band outfits
2) infant baptismal suit
3) three prom gowns
4) a graduation dress
5) monogram shirts for day care (30)

I also want to continue working with my granddaughter who is showing some interest in sewing. 

Now that I have put this in writing, I can hear Tim Gun saying "Make it Work"!  LOL
