Happy Thanksgiving

This weekend was Thanksgiving weekend, one of my favourite holidays of the year. Despite my annoying (and at times, painful) cold, we fit a lot into our weekend. I finished this custom order for a customer...

On Saturday evening we went to an outdoor art show, and met up with a few friends we don't get to see very often. We didn't stay long, I was sick and delirious on cold medicine, but it was pretty fun. On Sunday we had dinner at my parents house. It was so nice, we ate outside and enjoyed a bon fire later in the evening (the second bon fire of the weekend!). Today we had Thanksgiving lunch with Dan's family. We had a great time, chatting and eating too much pumpkin pie...

In between family visits, I tried to get some sewing in. I have 2 stores I am trying to get stock prepared for, as well as Christmas stock for Etsy, and finishing up the few orders I have. I am also preparing for a give away very soon, and will post more information on Wednesday!

In the mean time, here is a sneak peak of a few new ruffle bloomers and bustle panties. I also have been trying to come up with ways to use all my bits and pieces of fabric... I contemplated a quilt, but I just don't have the patience for that kind of undertaking, so... I decided to sew together strips of fabric, log-cabin quilt style, and use that to make undies. I think they turned out pretty cute... They remind me of the sensibility of the '30's.

I hate throwing out fabric. What do you do with your left over scraps?


  1. I love that set at the top. I also love that you put bows on everything. I try and use my scraps for facings and interfacings when I can or the insides of pockets. You can't see it from the outside but I think it looks cute having floral pockets or something in a pair of plain trousers.

  2. Oh my, these are looking so lovely...I want them all! I especially love the last pair of bloomers, so're doing a great job and I still can't fiure out how you fit it all in to your busy schedule!

    I have loads of fabric scraps that I have no idea what to do with! I was thinking of making sets of self-covered buttons for sale with the really pretty scraps...or maybe self-covered pins/brooches?!?
