Sooooo Slow to Sew

It's been a while since I posted last. An update on what's been going on:

  • I took the bodice and skirt apart on the plaid jumper from the last post. I just wasn't feeling it after much contemplation, so it is now an official UFO.
  • I picked up crocheting again. I am still not done with that project but will be soon.
  • I began sewing a dress for my youngest daughter, from Vogue 8380. I just need to add the zipper and finish the hem.



I only have a couple more sewing classes left. In the last class, I learned French seams. It looks like I'll have to sign up for another set of 9 classes in order to get to the topics I am interested in learning. It was kind of funny how the instructor kept getting on me about my foot. I have the habit of lifting my foot slightly above the pedal between stitching. He wants me to put my foot firmly on the floor instead. I'm finding that habit rather hard to break!

Good to hear from you. You have a few things on your plate. I'm sure the class is fun and you've learned a thing or two. The pattern for your DD's dress is cute. I have it too.

I do the foot thing too! Sometimes I'll put my foot down for no apparent reason and start sewing while the presser foot is lifted. LOL Do you get cramps in your ankles too? Haha.

The dress is a cutie. I'm looking forward to seeing it.
