Here are some things that I have finished but didn't have a chance to post about. For the Month of Tops November sew-a-long held by Faye over at Faye's Sewing Adventures, I sewed two knit Tops. The first top is New Look 6807 and the second New Look 6922. I found my crochet mojo and made a quick and simple crochet cable hat (and that's the name of the pattern) from the Raverly website. I am in love with Raverly. Now just to find out how to get their web button, LOL! I am browsing for more cable projects to crochet. I am thinking about another hat. I trying my hand at desining a cowl scarf to match the "Simple Crochet Hat".
Well I am off to Raverly.

It's been a loooong time since I have last posted. But I am back. I just joined a Faye's Month of Tops sew-a-long and thought this would be the perfect time to start blogging again. I already have a few tops traced and altered. I just need some supplies for some. I have a couple ready to be cut out of the fashion fabric. And more ideas are coming to mind. This should be fun.

Today Butterick's Spring patterns were released today. I have to say that finally there is hope for spring sewing. I looked at McCalls and Vogue Spring offerings and I was not that impressed. I was skeptical when I looked in my inbox and saw the email from Butterick announcing the patterns. But I have to say that I was impressed. Here are my favs:
Like the different options
All four of these patterns offer a very feminine look. Great for Spring and Summer.
Great jacket collar detail. But the jacket that caught my attention and that I think is my favorite Butterick Spring pattern is this: I love the button detail on this jacket. I can see this in a beautiful spring color linen fabric or in demin with contrast buttons and thread. Can't wait for a pattern sale. got to get this for my stash.
