Hello everyone! I am happy to be a part of this de-stashing project.
I have plastic tubs and wood chests full of fabric, and I really do not have the time to take pictures, so you will just have to believe me! :) There is lots of quilting fabric and almost as much of fashion fabric. I got the quilting fabric from my mother. Every now and then I will make a quilt, but it really isn't my thing.
My goals are to make several skirts, tops, and pants to wear to work. I am a conservative dresser, so I stick w/ more basic items. I am not much on pushing the envelope with my wardrobe, even weekend wear! My goal is to be able to comfortably participate in Made Me May 2014!
I have a ton of patterns - well over 100, and while, I have good intentions on using them, once I find a pattern that I love, I am quite frankly too afraid to try anything else. Right now, two of my favorite patterns are the Sewaholic Thurlow pants pattern, and the Renfrew top pattern. I want to use another pants pattern to mix up my pants wardrobe a bit, and really, I want to try my hand a couple of new dress patterns that I bought recently.
I love to refashion items as well. I am an avid thrift store shopper. I look at items that I can make into other things.
Other than sewing, my husband and I own and operate a small dairy farm as well as poultry for eggs to sell. We have two very large gardens to grow most all of our veggies for the year, so we stay pretty busy.
I will end this w/ a photo from my latest refashion, and will have a Stash Bustin' post ready for next week!
Take care and God bless!
