Yes, this is a cry for help. I am a MAD woman! I cannot stop making things for the Sewing Summit! I imagine I am like a person on crack, but instead my vice is fabric, and I can’t stop manipulating it into different shapes and sizes. Ugh! What the heck! Last year, I wore two dresses, and received an incredible response and it was really fun. I wore Gretchen Hirschs’ Bombshell Dress that I sewed with the help of her tutorial on Craftsy and I also wore the Burdastyle Heidi Dress, that I downloaded off of the fabulous Burdastyle Website. So this year, I wanted to do the same, but bigger. Well, I am well on my way, but the family, house and pets are all being a little neglected because, I can’t stop myself. I need more, more, more. What will I wear for the trip to Utah, on the plane? Hmm- still trying to figure this out. Then Thursday morning shop hop needs something handmade and of course and there must be a change of clothes for our evening cocktail party. Friday classes will need a different outfit and Friday dinner will need a costume change, Saturday! Wow- OMG I am so crazy on this end!
So far I have created The Amy Butler Weekender Bag,
The Amy Butler Cosmo Bag
The Amy Butler Business Card Keeper.
The Deb Stoeller One Skein Scarf from Creativebug.
The Anna Maria Horner Schoolhouse Tunic.
The Anna Maria Horner Proper Attire Skirt.
My Quilted Computer Cozy.
A Name Tag- still in the process of finishing:
A pouch to trade in the Zipper Pouch Trade.
Needle keepers that I am going to give as gifts to my wonderful Sewing Summit teachers.
a new business card that I designed using Illustrator, Thank you very much!
Still not sure if I LOVE it, but I did learn a lot when I was working on it!
As I bid adieu to all of you, I am eagerly awaiting the Sewing Summits arrival. I wait in my hotel room for the first of the festivities to begin tomorrow! Many of us sewists are heading out early for the “shop hop” and it should be a fun shopping experience. I have already met some really great people- and am so GLAD that I came!! Yipee- Stay tuned for some great pictures. And if you would like to follow along, many of us Summit attendees,will be posting pictures to twitter and Instagram under the #hash tag #Sewingsummit. You will probably feel like you are almost here!
Have a lovely weekend!
