This is some fabric that I got to make pajamas for a special little girl in my life. These four are flannel.
Most of these are lycra. I decided that I am going to try my hand at making some new bras. Now I just have to get a pattern.
This whole pile of fabric is shirtings. I love shirtings. I got all of these Ressy's coop Fabrics and Notions. They are all made of Pima Cotton.
This last piece I got for mother's day from my wonderful daughter. It is Italian cotton denim that is going to become a shirt for myself sometime.
I also purchased the Consew CES 300 gravity feed iron. Now all I have to do is learn to use it.

I thought this one was incredibly cute. Thinking of my DGD in a few years.
Again, thinking of my DGD.
Don't ask me why I liked this one, but I did, so it came home with me.

So I have been the sewing the dress from you know where the last couple of weeks. I actually cut it out in May or June, sewed on it a bit and put it away. It is intended to be a fancy play dress for my granddaughter.
It is made out of Minkee silky material and polyester organza. Yech! What was I thinking?
I am finally making progress. I did break down and get a walking foot for my machine. I wanted to wait a bit as it was so expensive, but .... I am really glad I bought it now and not later!
One of things that I did for myself for Christmas was to sell my Janome CP1000, which I have used 7 times in 2 1/2 years, and used that money as a downpayment on upgrading my Bernina 430 to the Bernina 630 that I really wanted when I bought the 430 in September. I got it for a great price and I am really happy I did it.
Lest anyone think I am out of my mind, I still have my Babylock Evolve that has coverstitch capability, to use for those few times I need it. Ya see, I just don't sew with knits much and having to figure out more thread options/storage kinda drove me nuts.
