Yesterday was our annual "Spring Fling" for all members of the Atlanta Sewing Guild. It was a full day with a fashion show, fabric/pattern sale, entertainment, and lunch. Each neighborhood group decorates a table with the general theme, and I'm always amazed at the creativity and enthusiasm of these ladies. I hope I can post pictures from our ASG website, because I forgot to bring my camera. I did come home with some goodies. The cat pincushion was a table favor from the "Cats" table (the theme was "Broadway" and one of my groups' tables was "Hair" and the other "Phantom"). The fabric shown above was $1 per yard and will be the perfect curtains for my guest room. And the patterns...what a haul for .25 each, dance dress material is auditioning for each.
I'm also sewing another pair of Style Arc Wendy pants. My new resolution is to sew to fill gaps in my wardrobe and one thing I need is casual pants. This is a lightweight stretch denim from JoAnn's, a little shiny when I got it home. I'm not willing to invest the work to make them "jeans" so I'll put in an elastic waist, which is what I wear all the time anyway.
I'm thinking about joining the "Me Made May" group, but I'm unsure of the rules. I think the rules are that you make your own rules, which is fine with me. I'm not going to be able to wear something that I made every single day in May, but if you can make up your own rules I could wear something every other day in May or twice a week in May...you get the idea.
