    I agree with you, can’t post anything until this site refreshes! I am sick of looking at the same jacket and denim shorts posting! I need to see a new Mary Athey design to make me happy!

    Hi Mary. Your top from Feb 2014, #137, was a style worn by many people in Vegas last week, in many different combinations. Also, black and white stripes of many different variations were seen everywhere! And if it wasn’t a stripe, it was a black and white combination. Kelsey’s yellow dress was also a very popular style!!! And it was so nice and hot and sunny !!!! :-)

      Morning rita,
      my sister got married in vegas 8 years ago. Mum said she went to the loo in the hotel but went out the wrong door and got lost lol. My sis said next time they will tie a rope to her lol, everything was that big she said.
      i’ve made a couple more of them tops now rita, they’re quick and i get to use my scraps. I’ve been making summer clothes even though its still cold her!! The sun has been shining the last few days and it has been lovely, i have a couple of things to finish and then i am going to make a couple more jumpsuits. I love them so much. I saw a gorgeous animal print in the kim kardasian collection.which.is similiar to my favourite burda one so i’ll try it. I’m still trying to lose the weight i put on from xmas!! I’m good one day and bad the next lol. I blame it on the weather lol. How are you and hows the sewing.x

      Hi Mary. It is so easy to lost in any of the hotels!!!! Your poor mum! My husband is good at navigating, so I just hold on to him. (also for balance). We usually go twice a year, it is so nice and warm. It sounds like you have had a long cold winter. We have had a very mild winter, and the flowers are already starting to bloom. I’m going to make a couple of those tops as well, they look so nice on. I love jumpsuits! Just need to get my body in shape. I haven’t lost the Christmas weight either, and it’s starting to annoy me, especially when I am scrambling for pants to wear; and I was doing so good before winter came. I am the same, good for a day or two, and then lazy. I did purchase a box of select chocolates from Ether M, and have told myself I get one a week if I loose weight that week. Talk about incentive, they are so goooooodddd. I did make a couple of those two piece dolman tops that you suggested; they have been a nice ‘hiding’ lifesaver. Some PJ’s and a scarf for my daughter. And a couple more tops for me, which I’ll post soon as I am not camera shy. I am so slow in my sewing now, but I am very pleased with the results. I am just happy that I am able to sew again, it was scary at first after my stroke. I hope the major testing in two weeks will determine what is wrong with me, and the doctors can fix me. I have been sorting through all the junk/treasures in our basement. So the deal is, I have to sort one hour a day before I can sew. There is a ‘Balmain’ jacket that I would like to replicate, so I have spent some time finding buckles and zippers for it, and figuring out which patterns I could combine; and then along came Burda March 2014, and there is a jacket in there that is very close to the design. It will take a long time to make, so I hope it will look good in the end. If not, I’m sure there is a young lady that will ‘borrow’ it. :-) There is a lady that is going to give me 181 Burda magazines from her mother, starting in 1960, so looking through those may distract me. LOL My granddaughter and great niece also have birthdays coming up, so I am going to make them each something original. My husband also needs a new jean jacket. So maybe by the time those projects are done, my weight will be down, and then I’ll start my jacket. Take care, and it’s awesome to see all your neat projects! :-)

      Hi rita,
      i really am sending you lots of good wishes and hugs for your check up. I did’nt realise you had a stroke, hats of to you for battling back from such an awful thing. Life does throw us some challenges dos’nt it. I have two friends who had heart attacks and two with cancer. My best friend passed away on my birthday ladt june, she was only 43 and the lovilest girl i ever met with the sweetest heart. We used to go to zumba a lot and we laughed so much, once lorna got really ill we stopped going (xmas before last) we even went to the zumba xmas party and had such a fun night, 6 months later she was gone. I really need to get up of my bum and go back as its great exercise but i still associate it with lorna. Sewing takes my mind of things and the people on here are so lovely.
      i’m baby sitting my sons 2 girls on st patricks day (overnight) i asked andrew instead of flowers chocs i don’t need for mothers day could he help me transform my smallest spare room into my sewing ?room? He knew i was after something when i said i would keep them overnight lol. I can’t wait!! My living.room resembles a sweat shop lol. Theres 3 sewing machines plus all the extras. Hopefully once its done i’ll use it?? I Love being able to get of my sofa and sew when i feel like it so i will still keep a sewing machine in the living room. Take care and god bless rita x

      Hi regan, what are you going to do with yourself now then? I finish at 2.30 so its great for sewing. Getting up at 5.30 is’nt nice though but i can’t have it always lol. I’m dreadfully impatient and i’ll start making something and will sew like mad to finish it because i will have spotted something else i want to make. Thats the. I just love sewing fabric and patterns and all the haberdashery stuff. Thats the gemini in me coming out lol. I have about 4/5 projects on the go at the minute lol x

    I laughed at your new heading, ’It’s so hard to resist new fabric’. Because it is so true!!! Two weeks ago I had a big tidy up of my sewing room and fabric stash and I have a room full of fabric that was too hard to resist!!! I felt rather guilty as I will never need that many new clothes but I couldn’t throw a piece out. The stash is huge but it is beautiful!! So to help my addiction, I got my iPhone and took photos of all the different colour groups, making sure I could see each piece of fabric. And then I talked to myself very sternly (like you do when you have to teach a little child they cannot have those lollies at the checkout counter) that when I am in a fabric shop, I need to look at my iPhone photos before I buy any fabric. Do I have something similar?? Do I really need it ?? And the other thing I am telling myself ‘THERE WILL ALWAYS BE BEAUTIFUL FABRIC’ and there will always be good fabric bargains. So don’t feel alone Mary, fabric addiction is well and truly alive in Australia.

      Lol schnui, i really am a dreadful fabric hoarder. I have even bought the same fabric in different colours by accident lol. I just adore fabric, i get the same thrill out of new fabric that i used to get clothes shopping. These days i prefer to make aa many of my clothes as i can. My sewing hoard is taking over my house though and my kids have said i’m going to end on one of them buried alive hoarding shows hahaha. I recently started gutting my smallest room to turn it into my sewing room. I found another large bag.of fabric.that i had forgotton about plus loads of abandoned projects, some gave me brain freeze and some i got bored with. My plan is to have everything in one room?? One day lol. One of my favourite sellers on ebay has just put on all new fabric and after i worked out what i wanted and counted the money up it was over £200. I so want it all as well.i have so much fabric the same as you, sometimes i’ve been loooking for something and found fabric that i don’t like any more as well!! I’ve done quite a bit of sewing since xmas but we hav’nt been out much for photos to be taken. I’m making my daughter a dress for her 21st and fingers crossed it should look good on her. Keep on sewing. Much love from a damp northern ireland lol x

    Enjoy the festive season Mary and all the sewing you will be doing during it. I am off to Queenstown in New Zealand early Tuesday morning to go to my dear friends sons’ wedding which will be lovely. I travel to Queenstown several times a year as it is one of the most beautiful towns in the world and my friends always want me to go and stay with them. I will be home in time for Christmas and to do all the cooking that needs to be done. I have done most of my shopping but have yet to wrap it all up. Enjoy getting out and about in your lovely cape and accepting heaps of compliments.

      Hi schnui,
      i don’t know how i missed your message but i hope you had a safe trip and a lovely time at the wedding. I’ve been getting in the festive mood by sewing some sparkly dresses, i love this time of year because i do love a bit of bling lol. I’m going to my sons for xmas dinner this year. This will be the first time i have not made my turkey dinner. Its sad as i love doing all the cooking at xmas but both of my kids have moved out now and have familys of their own so its just me my sewing machines and my cats lol. Who knows what the future holds for any of us!! at the moment i’m happy being free and single and just enjoying my family and friends. I have a few nights out planned so i’ll be sewing like mad as always. Take care x

    Leopard print could be nice if you break it down with a plain material combined together, like black denim or cotton jersey, also depends on the style of the garment. I think maxi dresses, especially with sleeves, could work brilliantly with the so called tacky prints and materials :) Can be tasteful if you take your time with it…use no lace x

      Thanks trudy. I lusted after this fabric on ebay but was a bit meh!! When it arrived. The fabric has a metallic sheen to it and it would,ve been so much nicer if they had’nt added this. I had the fabric earmarked for a long dress for new years eve so i made it!! Its a really nice pattern but i am worried i’m going to look like a 70’s bar maid lol. I like it and i don’t if you know what i mean. I’m going to put it on and photograph it and then decide if i should chop it to the knee?, ? I was going to make a brown faux leather shrug.to go over it. I googled leopard print long dresses and some of the ones i found where far more tacky than mine. X

      Ellen i am so sorry you lost your mum. I love mine to bits and we really are like best friends. I can talk to her about everything and we don’t go a day without speaking on the phone. Mum raised all five of us on her own, she had three jobs to keep us clothed and fed. There"s only six years between me and my youngest sister so she had it tough. I’m hoping to have enough money to take he back to spain in march for a week as she’d love it. I bought mum a gorgeous photo frame last mothers day with the inscription, my mother by nature but my friend by choice!! then i put a lovely photo of us in it, she loved it but said i’m a soppy sod lol

      Thanks rita,
      lorna was undergoing chemo when we went to the zumba event. She took her wig of in the car and put the blue one on. It was a blue themed event for a cancer charity. Lorna never gave up and fought so bravely that it was an honour to be her friend. I have some nice photos of the two of us before she got cancer i’ll put on.
      My cape was such a pain, i actually followed burdas instructions for once but it looked awful so i unpicked it and did it my way. X

      I made a little faux leather crop jacket to go with the dress as well ellen. I was going to add buttons as i lived yours? The buttinsvare vintage though and i have been saving them for something special. I think the jacket’s nice without them? X

    A cape will look great on you Mary! Good luck! I would love to make a cape too, but I’m afraid that it would shallow me as I am petite:(

      I have a vision in my head of my cape and me in it looking elegant!!! I probably will look more like miss marple in it ( little old lady from the agatha christie books and films lol) x

    Hi Mary! I am a little late on seeing the trouble you had a while back but wanted to add my dismay! As some of the others have noted you are well known here as well as much liked and appreciated, so just carry on making your wonderful garments and posting them for us to enjoy! Best to you!

    I hope Burda will deal with this!

      Thank you beezee, so far burda have said and done nothing?? I’m ok now as hopefully everyone knew i had made it. I thought maybe the other woman had made a mistake and maybe had tried to favourite it so she could do it at a later date? She never replied either. Oh well!! Onwards and upwards. Thanks again, there are some lovely people on here and i do love this site x
