Update report!

When I'm short on time, and have to do stop and go type sewing, I really don't like that kind of sewing! It just feels like the project doesn't step forward ........ quick enough :)
I came across a cute saying and it kind of sums up how I feel about spending so much time working right now......
"Born to Sew...Forced to Work"
Having said that...... my V8259 jacket is actually coming along, which is somewhat encouraging. I'll try and have pictures up by tomorrow.
I do like working with Claire Shaeffer's pattern so far. The instructions are well written and easy to follow.
I've received my Jalie patterns and my jean Fabric from Fabric.com. I washed and dried the fabric 3 times before I liked the feel of it. (definitely do not wash this fabric with anything else....the dye runs..... but still very nice fabric.
Hope everyone else is getting some quality sewing time in :)

Oh Ann, I love that saying and I do remember when I was still teaching and could only sew on every other Sat. how I would just live for that day. One day, you'll be old like me(!!) and then you'll have lots of time to sew.

You're definitely not old, and you have truly earned this time to now do as you please.
After 30 years, I'm so ready to retire my Army boots ;)

I can't wait to see that jacket. I know it's going to be beautiful!

"Born to Sew...Forced to Work" - I'm with you on this one; I've been feeling like that for the past few weeks; luckily I had a few vacation days left from last year and I'm taking them this week.

This discribes how I feel as well. I could spend hours at the machine. But a woman has to eat.

I need those words put on a plague and hung in my sewing room.
