The way life is means my sewing desk is clean. Disturbingly clean.
But when you are pulling up your roots and settling down elsewhere in a whole other state, you have to keep the house clean. Spotless. Which means I am going through sewing withdrawal.
Fortunately, I am not going through piano withdrawal. Yet. I will be playing that thing up until it gets packed on a truck.
I started this dress back at the beginning of January as a test for my silk ballgown. I have finally finished it long after the silk dress. I find it funny how the starting order of projects and their completion can get completely switched around sometimes. But life is often like that. We have to switch and change our focus to other things that become more important
Sometimes the multi-facets of my life cross and collide and let me bring onto my blog some of my other passions. As some people may or may not know, I am also a piano teacher. Music is very important to me. My family can probably read my emotions to some extent by how or what I am playing on the piano at any given time.
If I am not sewing, I am reading. (Okay or maybe wasting time on my computer or a host of other things.) The point is I do like to read especially old books.
I have added rayon skirts into my inventory. I love rayon challis for the soft texture and lightweight that drapes so beautifully.
I know I have been a little neglecting of my blog of late. Unfortunately that is all my fault, but I can't promise that it will get any better. Actually, I think it will get worse. Life is going to be very hectic and crazy for me for the next few months so that I won't get very much done to feature on the blog. But I do have some sewing things going on right now that I can outline for you.
Hello everyone, I have a few questions I want to ask my readers to help me make my blog better. Pleas leave me a comment below with your answers, (you can remain anonymous!)
1. What is your favorite post topic?
2. Which topic would you like to see more of?
3. What would like to see on the blog that I have never featured?

Thanks for taking the time to help me out so this blog can be even better!
Okay, so it is Tuesday instead of Monday. My excuses for being late are that I was gone part of the weekend, Sunday I was playing with my new smart phone, and Monday and today I had to complete the project to even have something to post about.
I haven't been completely lazy lately, although I didn't manage to get a post out Monday. I will use the fact that is a national holiday as my excuse.
Well, I realized this morning that yesterday was the two week mark for my WWII design challenge. Nobody ended up participating, so I guess maybe I will have to do that again sometime and see if there is better interest.
Sarah loves to sew, learn more about sewing, and create items with a vintage flair. Her arch enemy is clipping curves, and she has a tolerable relationship with the seam ripper.
