Ice Cream for Fall



 
I took advantage of the beautiful afternoon and no running around right after school to take a few pictures of a top that's been finished for over a month.  I had plans to photograph the top shortly after finishing it (with a stunning location to boot) but I had forgotten to put my memory card back in the camera. One of those Doh! moments.   I'm not the only one who has those, right?

Bimaa for BK

Another Kids Clothes Week is in progress and even though I didn't make any plans to participate this time around, I found myself sewing for the kiddos.  One project was for K but ended up being too big on her so I am the proud new owner of a Briar top.  Pictures and details to come when I find some time (and a photographer).  I've also been slowly working on a trench coat for MG.  BK wasn't left out...she got herself a new long sleeve top.  Can you guess what pattern it is?

Sandbox Love




We've all got that one pattern that we love to sew and for me that is the Oliver + S Sandbox Pants.  I've sewn it up countless times over the years.  It's a great basic pants pattern all on it's own but with a little imagination you can make pretty much any kind of pants/shorts with it.  This time around, I made a pair of shorts for BK.  If you want to see my other renditions of the Sandbox pattern over the years, check out the Oliver + S blog HERE.

September Stripes

I have always wondered what leads a blogger to go from posting on a regular basis to seemingly disappearing from the online sewing community.  Did something tragic happen or have they quit sewing altogether?
 
I can confidently say that in most cases it's a matter of life being busy.  Once you get out of the routine of posting every few days it gets harder and harder to find the time to start again.  I'm doing my best to get back in the habit of blogging again.
