Summer Sewing…and a sale!

Have I told you how lucky I feel to have joined the team at Sew News and Creative Machine Embroidery? I only have one complaint: the constant stream of sewing inspiration! I have more patterns than a girl should have…and likely more fabric, too. Sewing is such a good fit for the planning part of my brain. And summer sewing plans: I’ve got plenty!

Nautical pillows 300x300 Summer Sewing...and a sale!In case you missed it, I’m mid-move from one set of mountains (Blue Ridge) to another (Rockies) but someday (someday!) I’ll live by the ocean. Until then, I can indulge in fun home décor that reminds me of the beach. Around my home, you’ll find ships, shells, and a fairly impressive collection of shark teeth from the South Carolina coast. Up next? This Under the Sea Pillow set: the perfect punch of color against our hides-every-toddler-spill gray furniture. Sign me up!

This summer, I’m really hoping to focus on wearable garments so I can build out my handmade wardrobe. I didn’t take part this year, but I’ve been so inspired by Me Made May (and now our very own Me Made Monday)…I vow to be ready when next May rolls around! I have one of those body types that can be hard to fit, and I’ve been considering a dress form purchase. Next best thing…maybe I’ll make my own with duct tape!

The Arches Skirt Pattern is definitely calling my name. I love the lines: just enough detail without being too fussy.

I’m also planning my new sewing space with the move…and I think it’s time to upgrade from the retired catfood bowl pin holder to something a little cuter. Hedgehog Pincushion kit it is!

That’s it for my summer sewing plans, friends. What about yours? And speaking of friends, happy news: we have a 40% off Friends and Family deal going on now…just enter SSIA40 at checkout for 40% off your purchase. Happy summer! Happy sewing!
