Thursday Thoughts 7/13/2011

  • The Vogue 1250 remake is such a fun dress to wear. I told my co-workers I borrowed it from Tarzan!
  • Speaking of Vogue 1250 I made another version of it last weekend and it too was a miserable failure. Why? you ask...think sausage casing.
  • I used the correct fabric but sewed it without alterations. Big mistake. I'm going to try it one more time this weekend. If it doesn't work, I'm done.
  • I'm currently working on Butterick 5600. I'm using a blue and white stripe seersucker.
  • I'm starting to have visions of a housedress. We'll see how that works out.
  • My husband washed a load of his clothes complete with an entire pack of chewing gum in is pocket.
  • I should have suspected something when I opened the washer and everything smelled minty fresh!
  • Wouldn't you know I wanted to wash some fabric!
  • I only lost .3 lbs last week. At least I didn't gain.
  • I'm getting a new car for my birthday next month. Yippeee! We're already looking.
  • I'm obsessed with sewing dresses right now. Last summer it was jackets.
  • I cannot justify buying one more pair of shoes!
  • I love teaching sewing classes.
  • JoAnns sewing classes are too expensive.
  • I absolutely love Hummus and can eat it every day.
  • I need a vacation.
  • I have a doctor's appointment Monday. My knee has been killing me.
  • I didn't sew today although I had intentions.
  • I had to go to work with chipped nail polish because I was out of remover. That won't happen again.


  1. Oh my goodness...gum in the wash is one thing, did it make it to the dryer??!!

    I have Butterick 5600 but haven't made it yet. I'll be waiting to see your review...Good Luck!!

  2. Gum in the washer well at least he washes.My hubby don't even know how to use the washer LOL!

  3. Gum in the wash! No fun. A new car sounds fun, though.

  4. Been there done that with the gum...mine made it to the dryer!! NOT FUN!! Getting a new car is so much fun but all the paper work is such a headache! What do you have in mind? I have a Dr. Appt. too on Monday. My back and leg are killing me! I have chipped nail polish at least once a week. I wash dishes and one chips and I say to myself that I'm going to take it off and get preoccupied with other things and forget then I notice it at work. Funny thing that you were obsessed with jackets and now too!!
