The Hammamelis tree is blooming again and it figured in one of my earliest posts, which made me realize it has been a year since I started this blog. I've enjoyed blogging and hearing from people around the world. There are a lot of garment sewers out there! Why can't I find anyone locally is what I want to know! I originally thought that I'd do more posts on cooking and gardening, but that hasn't been the case.. Maybe this year. I know my son would appreciate it as he isn't all that interested in sewing, but he does read my blog as does my daughter, who comments regularly which is nice since she lives on the other side of the world.
To celebrate my year of blogging, I am having a give away. Three unused, one even unopened, Hot Patterns will be auctioned off. If I can figure out how to use a random number generator, well even find one, though I must say my internet skills have improved enormously in the last year, so I suspect I can, will be used. To be eligible you have to be a follower of my blog, and leave me a comment by the time I have the drawing on Tuesday morning, March 9 Eastern Standard time.
These two ar in the old, Glamour Girl sizing of 12-20 or bust 38 to 46 that were drafted to fit B/C/D bra cup.
Tell me which pattern or patterns you want and I'll put your name in the hat, so to speak.
Burda jeans need hemming and more rivets as 5 fell off and I used up my extras, so there are only 3 left on. I bought them in the city from Bottani, and stupidly didn't buy enough extras. I didn't even use really heavy weight denim either! The jeans look great from the front, but even after making a muslin, I have some issues with the back. I'll try one more pair from this pattern and if I can't fix the issues, I'll look for another pattern. They are comfortable, so they'll be great for work.
I am also working on altering a jacket pattern and I'll post more about that next time.
Have a good weekend.
