I'm still here!

I'm still around...just haven't been sewing or blogging. I was very busy for work lately and am now getting a bit of time for my favorite hobby!
Sunday I made a shorts muslin that I had to tweak just a bit and now I'm ready to cut the fashion fabric. I'm using Kwik Sew 3614.
I'm making the longer version of course! This pattern has a really unique way to insert the zipper and also the waistband. Everything is done flat! Quite easy and intersting. This is the first pair of pants I'm made in many, many years. Stay tuned for the finished project.

The quilt...I'm not done with it, but I've put it away for now. I wasn't able to practice the quilting as much as I thought I would, so I've put it away until I feel like practicing again.

I did get to spend a whole week in my favorite place...San Diego. I was there for work and then spent a few days extra to have fun. The weather was horrible...yes, horrible, but we managed to enjoy it anyway. Sunday, March 7 (my birthday) I had brunch with friends at the Hotel Del Coronado, wonderful! Then the afternoon/sunset in La Jolla.

I've also booked my annual sister's vacation. We are heading to London in July.

Well, until next time...Happy Sewing!

London! Adopt me as your sister? Please? Shorts! Lucky you, I can't even think about warm weather clothes yet! We are still skiing around here. I am sewing through the UFO pile. Not terribly exciting, but very satisfying.
