I think I mentioned something the other day about testing again for Patterns by Figgy's. This sweet little kimono-styled jacket is the "Bamboo Little Woo" being released this Fall! It really is a cute design and very easy to sew up! I made this up in a super soft baby-rib. The woven is a loose-weave cotton.

Also, remember forever ago when I mentioned Colette Patterns had some new releases coming soon and I was pattern testing again? Well, I just saw the new patterns are out and have been for awhile. I have good reason to be late, being out of the loop and all. I tested the Nutmeg set and it is gorgeous and sexy! The pieces are also very simple to sew up, the bralette being a bit more difficult. I have no pictures at the moment due to my crispy, deep-fried computer situation (we lost a lot of pictures! *sigh*) so I'll have to shoot some more. This is more of a heads-up that Sarai has new offerings! 
Here I am at the lake this last weekend. I look like crap but you can kinda make out my melting figure. I was pleasantly surprised...

Radio Silence

Sorry for the lengthy absence! A few weeks ago lightning decided to strike our ginormous pine tree. Above is a picture of part of the gaping wound. It goes all the way up to the tippy top of the tree. Now the thing is literally bleeding sap. Poor baby. We hope it survives. Our neighbor across the street called a scientist friend and he thought it should make it. The surge fried our computer (which we just bought in January), the washing machine, heater/AC, and our Treager grill (it plugs in). All of my sewing machines and my husband's guitar amps made it. We were very lucky in end. That stuff is all just stuff and it could have been a lot worse.

I enjoyed the last few "un-plugged" weeks, believe it or not. I didn't even sew one stitch! I'm testing another pattern for Patterns by Figgy's and am waaay behind. I really need to get busy. I got it cut out last night and then the power went out due to some heavy wind. Sheesh.

I've been kickin' butt at the gym and have lost about 9 lbs and have lost several inches. A total of 3" on my full bust alone. Awesome! Speaking of, I need to get going over there right now so will post more later!

I've missed you all!
