discovered come to realize that I’m addicted to sewing notions. I’ll say it, “I LOVE NOTIONS!” I’m always looking for something I might need in my sewing adventures, a tool which will make my sewing experience sweeter, a bell or whistle to make a task easier and let’s not forget sewing machine feet, love them too! When Fabricland has their 50% off member’s sale, I stock up like mad. Threads especially, you can never have too many for embroidery!
And speaking of thread, I read the article in Threads magazine about silk thread, I don’t have the magazine with me at the moment but the article was very interesting and I must find some quality silk thread!! All are not created equal nor are they available local to me, I’ll have to order them online.
In other news, M’s coat is almost finished, I just need to hem the sleeves and sew the lining hems as well as install snaps. I’m not 100% happy with the way the sleeves are too curved but that’ s the style of the coat and you really can’t see what I mean in either the diagrams or the photograph.
I’ve really enjoyed making this coat, it’s something I’ve never done before and as I’ve said, it isn’t difficult, it’s just time consuming because you have to cut out almost every piece three times and sew every seam four times (lining seams included). M likes the lining so much he wants a shirt out of it as well so I’ll be purchasing more brown plaid this coming weekend for the MPB Sew-Along.
While we’re on the subject of “M”, I’m going to change his name in this blog to TDF or “The Dog Father” which is his name on some forums and is just more familiar to me. I hope this doesn’t cause too much confusion — of course it won’t, I only have 6 followers! LOL! I guess I’m just not that entertaining.
