July and a News Flash...


We are now nearly at the mid point of the year, which is time for a sewing celebration.  So this month, why not sew your wish - that garment you have always wanted to try, maybe something that you think is not you but you wish it was, or just something your heart desires.

I also want to let you know that I will be away for a couple of weeks in July so I won't be able to post photos to the monthly gallery.  Don't worry, I will post them all when I get back.  In the meantime, I will be keeping in touch with you all with my mobile devices.

Keep sewing, stay well

X, Sarah Liz

  1. Already have a few items cut out, and am waiting on a vintage pattern to arrive in the mail that I may have to sew first (so many ideas floating in my mind on how to make this pattern). Have a safe and wonderful trip Sarah Liz.

    1. Isn't that always the way with sewing ...more ideas than time. Looking forward to seeing your vintage pattern.

      Thank you for your well wishes.

  2. Have a great trip, and don't worry about us -- I am sure we can entertain ourselves here ;)

    Wish... I wish I was a faster sewer & could get to some of the patterns I've been meaning to make for a long time! I've joined PR's "Pattern Stash" contest so between the two I am hoping/wishing to get some extra sewing done in July!

    1. Thank you - and I am sure you will entertain me too :)

      I do like your wish - I think a few of us probably secretly share it - and also I think it would be nice to have lots more time to sew. Good luck with the pattern stash contest - it's good to work the two challenges together. I'll have to look out for you on the PR challenge - do tell us about it when you have finished it.

  4. Have a great break. What a great theme you have set this month I have gots lots of ideas but need to finish June first and taking into account a busy month at work I think I am going to have to be a bit realistic about what I can achieve In a month. Half way through the year all ready and I have some lovely new clothes and improved sewing skills. That you for hosting this challenge I am thoroughly enjoying it and appreciate all your efforts.

    1. Thank you Tracy - and don't worry too much about the July deadline - sew your wish when you have time - sometimes we do have busy periods that interrupt our precious sewing time.

      I'm glad you are enjoying the challenge, it's nice to have such a great group :)

  5. Enjoy your well deserved trip! My sewing wish, awww, that must be a Chanel jacket, using lots of couture techniques. As tempting as it is, that's not going to happy in July when it's way too hot in my sewing room! So I 'll be checking some pattern magazines today, searching for a sundress :)
