Vogue 8634 Again

I know, I know. It’s been a while. What can I say? I suck! I’ve been busy and life and blah blah blah. It has been very heart warming to get your positive comments and well-wishes. I really have been fine. Just busy. As in B to the USY. I did finally crank up the sewing machines and made this little ditty. I made this last one in October and really like it with boots and skinny leg jeans. Do you know that was the last item I made? Yikes! My life is busy but that is too little garment sewing!

First, let’s all ooh and aah over the outside house remodel. Here you can see the old front (poo colored T-111 and pink trim). Here’s the front door now. It’s a gray green with white trim. We re-sided the front and side so it’s a much nicer looking lap siding. We extended the door to the side and added a side light to lighten up the front room a little bit. The door is a dark cranberry red. I wish I had a full picture of the whole front for you. You’ll have to wait until summer.


Here’s the new top. On the last one, I really took a lot out of the sides for a more fitted look. On this one, I left it big so I could wear a chunky belt with it. Overall, this is a pretty boring review. There’s nothing earth-shattering or even technically challenging about this knit top but I did want you guys to know I was still alive.v_8634_3


I’ll try to post more than 51 times this year. Wow. 2011 was not my year for sewing or blog posts!
