Hello everybody, long time no see!

Hi everyone,  I've been very busy lately.  As always I have both ends of the candle burning. LOL 
I'm beginning to work on my great nephew's baptismal suit.  I'm using my TNT McCalls 3063. 

Here's the stole I made for my priest, he was recently named Monsignor.  I lined it with a cross embossed satin brocade I purchased on my NY trip last year.  It is so regal looking.
These are pictures of the uniform shirts I embroidered for my daughter's school. She teaches there.  Good looking out DD.    I've done about thirty so far.  I'll do more as kids enroll.                                               

This is a beautiful Vera Wang cotton pinwhell striped print with a little Lycra.  The magenta is a jersey knit.  The brown floral is also a jersey, all were 60" and purchased on-line from "Fabric Mart."  Planning a couple of tops and a wrap dress.
This beautiful stretch satin is from  It was $1.95 a yd.  The beautiful lace, on the other hand, was $95 a yd.  I found it at Couture Fabrics in Miami, Fl.  It is soooooo lush and sparkly.  The pictures don't do it any justice.  I see cruise gown in this one!  
Here's the lace over the satin.  Beautiful!
Spring has finally sprung!  I'm officially not making anymore winter clothing.  I'm putting all of my UFOs away until next year.  My stepson will be going off to college and I will be moving my sewing room back to the basement!  Yippee, I really need the room. 

My stint as Pres of ASG Maryland is going great.  We have lots of exciting things going on in our chapter.  In May Susan Khalje and Pam Damour are presenting workshops.  I'm sponsoring another fabric shopping trip to NY on May 1...if you're in NY let me know!  Our annual meeting will be held in Atlanta this year, can't wait for that.  We are making bags for the troops also.  I'm trying to get the libraries in our area to let us put up displays in September for Sewing Awareness.  So far I've got the go ahead from two in Baltimore City and one wants us to put on a sewing program!  ASG is so much fun!

Until next time..p.s.  I 'm enjoying all of your blogs, keep up the great work!

You did a fantastic job on the stole and T-shirts. That’s a pretty haul of fabric and looking forward to what becomes of them.

Thanks for the lovely compliment on my jacket & dress.
