Hip Stitch

Momtastic and I practically live at Hip Stitch. She introduced me to this lovely sewing lounge and we spend as much time there as we can. Our girls take a homeschool sewing class there. Also she and I hang out one day a week for a few hours, sans children of course, and craft or sew or talk…or all of the above.

Tonight, I went to Craft Night there and it was so much fun. I had some trouble with a sash I was making from the Amy Butler book, In Stitches. One of the directions seemed a bit unlikely and now I see that the early editions of the book have corrections to some instructions. So if you’re having trouble with some of the projects, this might help.

The sash turned out beautifully and I hope to get some pics up on the blog soon. My camera is kaput and I need to find another which won’t break my budget!

Fabric: Amy Butler’s Sky/Temple Garden, black beaded fringe
Pattern: Sash with Beaded Fringe, again from In Stitches (I’m so predictable!)

Feb2012 ABQ  This is me trying to cleverly hide the zit on my cheek. This did not work because Soph didn't tell me I wasn't actually covering the zit. Now it looks like I'm drawing your attention to it. ARGH! But hey, we had fun.

Feb2012  ABQ    I hate the way I'm pursing my lips in this but Soph looks so stinkin' cute that I had to post it :)
