    Would a dress form help me do a better job with fitting? I do not have a dress form. Who has one and what do you think?

    Maybe the Sewing Gods will be with me this time since my sewing machine has been in the shop for over 2 months and cant get any straight answers from anybody. I am so frustrated beyond belief. But hey you never know, it could always be worse.

    The sites for prizes are fantastic. I would be thrilled to win anything from those places! A sewer needs as many notions as possible to make her sewing room a retreat! I love to sew and so does my girls and this site is pretty sweet too! Christmas sewing here I go! :)

    Thank you Burda! Fantastic giveaways just in time for the Holidays! I have just made an “end of the year resolution” to begin sewing for myself (I always so for everyone else) and gracious gifts from Burda will make my sewing much more enjoyable! Can’t wait to win!

    I have to go to work, but had much rather be sewing. Tried to get to the material store all weekend, wanted to begin computer covers for Christmas presents, but things kept getting in the way. Oh well, maybe tomorrow.

    Too many holidays too many projects all at once…I only have two hands! And boy are they tired! After making costumes for Halloween and then talent show in November, I’m just cramming to finish the crocheting for my Christmas gifts. I know I go overboard but as I’m working and complaining deep down I’m loving it all cause in the end I love to see the smiles of those I love. Christmas is almost here…whoo-hoo! Then New Years and shortly my birthday…never ends :) What are YOU making for Christmas?

    I would absolutely LOVE that fabric! I was already going to use an old pendleton to make a jacket, but that would work just as well!!
