Clothes Alterations

I really dislike altering my clothing. But, I don't have much choice in the matter because even when I purchase clothes in petite sizes I still have to shorten the length of dresses and pants. There was a time in my life when I made all of my clothes. So, it isn't that I don't know how to do alterations. It is just that I don't want to do it anymore.

Since my personal life is changing dramatically, I have purchased a few new things. It never feels like I am getting something new when I have to sit down at the sewing machine and work on them first before I can wear them. I think their is a possibility that I will be looking for a seamstress in my area that can give me a little help.


I would much rather spend my time at the sewing machine making a quilt! Remember, I just purchased that beautiful Poppies Collection fabric for a wall hanging.




With such big changes in my life I am having a challenge in finding time to do the things that need to be done at home, especially in the garden at this time of year. I am having a fabulous time and would not change it for anything, but none the less,  I feel like I am always behind with many of the things I did on a regular basis.

Believe me, life is wonderful.

What Is The Girl Up To Now

Just what I have been saying with the little animated clip art at the bottom right side of my blog front page.  A little patchwork quilt to hang on my living room wall during the summer months.

 POPPIES, POPPIES - I love poppies!

I can see it in my mind's eye hanging over the horizontal book shelf in place of the abstract art and mirrors.What do you think?  I would love to have some feedback.


I think it will work well with the red and black accents that I have used in the living room decor.


These fabrics are from the Poppies Collection by Pamela Mostek.  It is a new collection for Clothworks Textiles. I ordered the kit a while back knowing that it would not be available until now. I am quite sure that I will have a good time working on it. 


And, look at this precious bouquet of poppies. My next door neighbors from south of here came up to their vacation home for a few days.  They brought the poppies for me from their garden. Fabulous! They look so sweet next to the fabric.

It is a total coincedence. She did not know anything about my plans for a Poppy quilt wall-hanging.
I have the best neighbors!

I hope you are having the start of a wonderful weekend. We are having thunder, lightning and rain at the moment. Hey, we really need the water.
