"I welcome you to needle and thREAD. What have you been sewing lately? Or are you embroidering? Pulling a needle with thread through lovely fabric to make life more beautiful somehow? Would you share with us just a single photo (or more) and a description of what you're up to? Would you talk sewing and books with us? I'd love that so much."
Head on over to Elizabeth's blog and join the party.
This week I whipped up this sleeveless, button up summer top for Kimberly. I used the Simplicity 7616 pattern. I made the top three inches longer than the pattern...it is meant to be a crop top, but I like the extra length. The top was an exact fit-6x. I proceeded to make a red pair of shorts using the same pattern and size, they came out gigantic...I tried to "fix" them, but they ended up in the trash. I was so upset about wasting the fabric, but they were just unwearable. I have now written in big letters on the pattern, "don't make these shorts"!
I finished up An Invisble Thread. It was a true story about an 11 year old panhandler and a sales executive.
This inspirational story shows how a brief encounter between two people from different worlds can turn into a lasting relationship that changes lives.
