Designing Creations

Admin during the day, student in the evening, and a procrastinating sewer/designer the rest of the time.

Moving can be tiresome! Lol!

Hopefully I can do better about blogging even if i’m not sewing at the moment.

Ummm…. Yeah…. Ok?

I’m still M.I.A.!
School has taken every amount of energy that I have in me! I’m glad I’m in school but SERIOUSLY!!!!!

I made two jackets on Dec 31, that I forgot to log on my 2009 re-cap. I also made a top last month.

The jacket that i made is Burdastyle 8027. I made two. One is a green & cream ribbed knit. The fabric is medium weight and very cozy. The second was made in a grey jersey, very lightweight.

The top that I made is from the newest Vogue line, Vogue 8634. The pattern runs big. A large was too big for me.

Maybe I can get some pics this weekend since we have the camera up and running again.

Ciao Fashionistas!


Just In Case Anybody Was Looking…

I’m still here. After we got back from California in August there wasn’t much mojo for sewing at all. Then another month passed and I really didn’t have much of an excuse by then. I have been keeping up with everyone’s blog but not my own. Now I’m in school and I’m really excited, nervous and over-whelmed all at once. I’m in my 3rd week and things are going good except all this homework is truly a new world for me. Hubby has been extremely supportive and helpful, so that’s been wonderful! So until I can get a handle on this which I hope is before the holidays. I’ll be seeing you all in spirit on your blogs.

Leaving you with a few quotes/thoughts that are helping me right now:
There is only one success – to be able to spend your life in your own way. – Christopher Morely

The deepest personal defeat suffered by human beings is constituted by the difference between what one was capable of becoming and what one has in fact become. – Ashley Montagu

The foundation of anyone’s ability to cope successfully is high self-esteem. If you don’t already have it, you can always develop it. – Virginia Satir

Until next time,

I ran out of steam!

I have so much going on right now that I just can’t do it all, especially this weekend.
Those five dresses are going to have to wait right now. One is almost complete however I don’t like it. Mom says it looks ok but she did just say “ok” and not “cute”. You know the difference as well as I do and that’s why I’m going to finish (I promise) but it probably won’t be worn except for the picture to post. I have 3 dresses and a skirt that I’m working on for clients.
That’s pretty much what I have going on right now. Just moody right now (DH, no comment!? ok??). Not sleeping all that great (stupid hair rollers).

I’ll post everything when I can.

Quote for the day:
Nothing is a simple as we hope it will be!


What I’m planning!

Here are some items that i’m planning on making for the Fall/Winter 08 season.
All came from BWOF. Some I will actually use the pattern from the mag but there are some that I would try my hand at in PMB.
And here they are. Please click on the image to enlarge.

Where have I been?

Busy mostly.
Working out at the gym and with my personal trainer. Not too much energy. I made two dresses in the past month so i’ll take pics and post them soon.

Not much else is really going on.

Until next time…

What I’m doing

Hi All!
I’m in the process of trying to loose weight and still want to sew as well. So along with working out i’ve been working on this dress.
New Look 6697 it’s a faux wrap dress. This is very quick and simple. I’ll be done with it today and will have pics to post. My weekend was ok, hubby had to work and Mom was out so it was just me and Phoebe (dog) all weekend.

What’s Upper!

Hi everyone! Vacation was great! It was so great to not have anything planned. We really enjoyed ourselves. We had a very lovely anniversary last week as well. No sewing took place (yeah, I’m sad about that) but it was for a good reason. Hubby helped me rearrange my sewing room so I’ll have pics to post for that. We painted and I was able to catalog (still doing that) and get an inventory of what i have. That was great, it just took a really long time to do it. So all of the fabric is counted I just need to finish stapling the swatches to my index cards and finish the descriptions of everything. Yesterday I helped hubby organized the garage. Tossing out things that we don’t need anymore and moving shelves around. Oh well… back to reality! It’s early in and early out for me today (doc appt). So I’ll get a jump start on everything again today. I have to finish painting my sewing room, we got a really pretty green paint (my favorite color) from the OOPS selection at Lowes. So maybe I’ll be squeezing in some sewing this week. We’ll see!

This weekend…

This weekend we meet again! I still have slopers to do, a pair of shorts for mom, laundry that just can’t wait another day! Today I shall try my hand at these tasks and see what I come up with. Next week I’m on VACATION! It is mine and Hubby’s 10 year anniversary! Whoo Hooo! Hubby and I have not planned anything! Whoo Hooo! So I’m planning on sleeping in late (yeah right, the noisy dog) and doing some sewing until I hear differently.
