I finished up the brown denim skirt for Abby. I also hired her to set up an Etsy shop for me so I can sell some of my extensive collection of ancient patterns. Let's face it, I am not going to sew a dress that looks like it could be on the show, Dynasty, so I may as well sell all those retro patterns and make some money. I also run across old sewing and craft books at the booksales, so maybe I could sell some of those, too. Or whatever else I want, who knows.
Now I am going to make some PJs and pencil skirts for Abby. I have been looking around for a good pattern, and I just don't have one, so I am going to have to make one. I found a section in an old sewing book on skirt vents so I am going to graft a new vent onto a pattern I already had. I need to buy some lining fabric but the sale is not for a week or so, but I can still be working on the skirt shell or the PJs.
It feels funny to still have my sewing area in limbo land, and I am anxious to finish it up. We have to wait for better weather though. I want to paint the long desk white and I can't do that in the rain.
I hear from the Great J that my niece who recently graduated from nursing school has gotten a job in the southern part of the state in a lovely seaside city. I hope she is happy and successful there. My nephew has also flown the coop and headed for a job on the East coast, so we are starting to spread out across the country. I was the only one of us who used to live on the East coast, but we came back home to live.
