Star Wars and February Update

Recently I drug my husband kicking and screaming to Joanne's to help me pick out fabric for the quilt I am making.  In the hope, that if we liked the finished product it would go in our living room. Right as we walked through the door to Joanne's what did he find... Star Wars fabric!  He was so overjoyed - arms brimming with fabric, he rushed to the cutting table so he could have some new pajama pants!

Now, if you remember I had some pretty lofty goals for February.  I didn't really accomplish what I had hoped.  The vacation I thought would help me achieve the goals really derailed them, but here is an update.                                                              

• To finish the Minrou Jacket Sew-Along and complete my first jacket ever! 
   I am up to date with the Sew-Along, but it has fallen behind schedule.  I believe we should be finished before the end of this week.  I can't wait to show off this beautiful jacket!
• To complete the quilting blocks for January and February from the Craftsy course.
   Yay! This was a sewing goal accomplishment and a task I really enjoyed!
• Participate in the Sew Colette Sew-Along for the second month (the Pastille dress from the Colette Sewing handbook.
   While I detoured a bit from the original pattern - this was another sewing accomplishment and a great springy addition to my closet.
• Complete (3) UFO’s a Pink Ginger Skirt, an Amy Butler traveling handbag, and Light Blue Georgette Sorbetto
     The Pink Ginger skirt is complete except I need to do some handstitching to the waistband this will be finished this week and you should see a post on it!
    The Amy Butler bag is on my sewing table now and I am hoping to wrap this one up this week as well.
   The Georgette sorbetto is still in the UFO basket!
Complete a Lonsdale Dress!
   This dress never made it to the sewing tables.

Derailments:  2 pairs of StarWars pants, pillows for the house, and watching too much Project Runway.

  1. That reminds me of when my husband was with me in Joann one day and he came across a print that embodied two of his favorite things: comics and cowboys. I made him three pairs of boxers.
