A new member to the team!

   Whew, life has been crazy busy here in my household! I did not plan such an extended absence away from all my sewing Divas! As you all know, my husband is in the Navy, and the ship came back recently after  being gone for the entire summer.. We also celebrated a birthday in the family, our son turned the big five*tear* and to add  also started kindergarten this past Tuesday! So, it has been to say the least..

My kindergartner *tear* of course mommy was trailing
right behind lol!

I know the last time we chatted I was working on the muslin for the beignet skirt. Well, I have had it finished since the end of August. I also managed to finish another skirt, a muslin for a pair of pants and manage to cut out the ones for the real garment...I am so in need of basics for the fall, so that's my focus right now basics... I know, know where are the pictures you say! I will hopefully post them this weekend. Now that things are getting back to normal here, regular posting can resume!

 Well, I know you say the title of this blog post is: " A new member to the team" What is that about?Well, umm, it involved another purchase, lol! I posted about some of the garments I wanted to make this  fall, one of them being a coat...Sheila, had mentioned in one  the comments that she purchased a heavy duty machine to sew her coat this year, as she didn't want to mess up her machine using too of a thick material ( I am paraphrasing here)..

  I love, love, my sewing machine and didn't know if my machine would handle the thick fabric, interfacing's and such, and I also wanted to get into sewing jeans..So, I was like, yeah Sheila is right and hit submit on my new Singer Heavy 4423! It was on sale, as I didn't want to spend more for this sewing machine than for my everyday sewing machine seeing that it wouldn't be used everyday machine. I finally got to take it for a spin today, after having it for about two weeks now! See it's been busy here

Well, so far so good, but I'll let you if that changes, hopefully not! It's feels so good to be back from an unplanned absence from the blog... Alright, Divas that's all for now but I promise to have more later! As always be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!

  1. I know how you feel. I was suppose to be a lil more productive this summer but with DJ being home that did not happen. I love my janome that I got as a backup for the baby lock. Its all mechanical but I don't think it is heavy duty. I may bred to add to the family as well lol

  2. My youngest just started kindergarden this week, sniff. I am trying to get back into sewing, but I started baking instead...not good news for my dress size when I do get to sewing, lol!

  3. Glad you are back! I'm sure it was tough having your hubby gone all of the summer, I am an army brat, and I remember my mom holdin' it down while dad was away. I'm looking forward to seeing the items you have finished, I'm sure they are lovely!

  4. @Shawnta,you know I have to cosign on you getting a heavy duty lol! @ Karin, I can't wait to see your new clothes once you get back to your sewing machine! @ Vanessa, it was rough having the hubby gone all summer, but I thank God for His strength, because without whew lol!

  5. Congrats on your new member. I'll be watching closely to see what you pump out on that baby.

  6. Thanks Faye, I am excited! I love the sewing community you Divas are awesome!

  7. Congrats on your new machine and thanks for the Shout-out. My plan this fall/winter is make a coat and looking forward to yours.
