KNITTERS-DELIGHT

Long Time No Contact


First off - I cannot believe it has been 8 months with radio silence....on my part. I am truly sorry. I have been going through so many things, that I just didn't have it in me to post. I have tried to keep up with my blog reading to the best of my abilities, but I even let that slide....sigh. On a positive note, I am feeling like I am coming out of my black hole and starting to resurface. Please don't get me wrong, a lot of things have been really positive, just overwhelming and time consuming. I digress.....


Here is some of the things that have been made but not posted since the dawn of my hiatus. The picture above shows me in a pair of Silhouette Ralph Lauren pants that I made out of silk for my ETAC challenge. Yes, I made a successful ensemble in October 2012, yet never posted one image. Here's my favorite piece from the challenge. The color is on-trend for 2013 and the fit is amazing. I am holding the book that I one from the fabulous Lauren from Lladybird.com had a giveaway for the Drape Drape book in February and I WON! I have this book out on my table and am hoping to try a pattern before year's end. Thank you Lauren.

This top is New Look 6780. This is my third time making it since first starting to sew. It's comfy with some nice finishes including elastic in the sleeves and a wide band at the bottom. This will be a wardrobe staple for sure. Here's a close up....



The last item I have to show is another TNT pattern I've made several times... These Simplicity pants (Simplicty 7092) are comfy yet work appropriate. For this pair, I completed the hem by hand due to the brocade-type fabric. These wrinkle by day's end, but are rocking for most of the day. Ha ha.



I have several more things to show, but may just leave it to the things I wear frequently....more to come....I hope.
