KNITTERS-DELIGHT



1:50 PM

New FO and PatternReview Member in Focus

Oh Happy Day! I have so much to post, but not enough time to share. lol. I consider that a blessing, though. There are plenty of people out there, bored out of the wits with nothing to do. (I'll have to remind myself of this when I get back to work full time as my maternity leave comes to a close, soon....)



I have finished my fourth FO for the new year. This one is New Look 6816. It really was an easy top. I cut it out on Friday night and sewed it up on Saturday so I could wear it to church the next day. This one is a keeper for sure. It's comfy (another knit pattern...I know, I know...lol), but can be dressed up or down. This one will be a great top for work as well as for my weekends.



Another exciting thing that happened this week was that I was chosen as the Member in Focus for PatternReview's Newsletter. Honestly, I feel so blessed to just be a member and get sewing tips, I never expected to be interviewed and have people care to read about my sewing journey. Thanks Deepika!!!!!



Two of my nieces flew to Vermont to visit their new cousin. They were recently accepted into the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority. While visiting, they gave us a fabulous show as they did a little stroll demonstration for the family. What a fun visit we all had!



My last image for this post is a picture of my sweetie, Nilah. She is enjoying her new blankie made by Ashley from Film in the Fridge. She and her husband Morgan stopped by last night for a visit. I had fun letting them in on all the fun they have awaiting them, as she is due with their first child at the end of March! Congrats you two and thanks for the lovely gift. Nilah has been using it ever since. Even though she's just seven weeks old, she still has a stylish reputation to keep up after all! lol.

That's it for right now. I will have a post showing my fun sew-alongs in the next few days. My Sister, her boyfriend Craig, and my Mother are all on the "sewing tip". They are all trying to learn to sew before I go back to San Diego. So far, Craig has made six pairs of fleece pjs for his kids, while my Mother has managed two dog sweaters for her granddog Curly. My Sister is currently working on a pair of pants and Craig is starting on a top and dress. More to come.....
