I Miss Blogging!

Hello Everyone!! 

It has been a loooong time since my last blog post! I have been very busy with my business and have had little time to sew. I have not had time to blog but I have found time to read other blogs! (LOL! Go figure! It's much easier.) Those of you who still came to see my blog, THANK YO!!
Anywhooooo, I just want to catch you up on what I've been doing. . .

Non-Sewing: I have started a technical consulting business where I have been a sub-contractor for about a year now. I have been very fortunate to have found work and have found some worthy clients who send me work on a regular basis. One in which has asked to manage a large project for them. It's only the beginning and so far it's going well. (knock on everything wood in the room!) It is really keeping me busy! Because of this big break, I was fortunate enough to pull some folks off of the unemployment line which is a blessing. Feels great to be in a position to help other's who really deserve a chance. Wish me luck in my endeavours and I thank you in advance! Prayers welcome - Anytime!

In Tennesse on business needed some R&R time! This was down the street from my hotel!

Non-Sewing Around The House:We are working springtime house beautiful projects as well. New light fixtures, my son's room (which is finished!), my sewing room (finally finished) and the office! Dut dut duuuunnnn! (That room is a beast! YIKES! It's only 8x9 and I swear it has teeth!) Can't wait for you to see the before and after! Oh, my brother in law is my new Gardner! We are bartering skills. I sew for him and give computer advise - he does the yard. IT LOOKS WONDERFUL! (Thanks Mr. Backyard!)

Sewing: I got a chance to see the British Sewing Show (Loved it!) Had my money on Ann!! Congrats Ann!
Got myself a new serger and we are great friends!

I made a prom dress for my niece. She didn't get to wear it. Yes, I spent some valuable time on this project but it is what it is. The Past! On a great note - she is learning how to sew and I learned a new technique. It has been a long time since I sat down and pumped out a "real" dress. I have been serging elastic waist pants and other quickie things that make you lazy and are mojo satisfiers (is that a word?). So, it was nice to see that I didn't loose my fitting/pro-dress making touch. :-).

Last but not least I re-did my sewing room! I added a new floor from Menards (We put it in ourselves and my husband and I are still friends!(LOL!)and a DIY cutting/storage table. I will be making new curtains this week as well but the pics have the old one's up. My room is small so it's always a challenge making things fit. I did a good job this go round! Whew! now its time for rest. (just a few hours)

Hope everyone had a great Memorial Day!

Here's the "before" of my sewing room!

Thanks for visiting! I really enjoy your company!
