Weekend Treats

Books, Magazines, Tools?

Friday I found myself anxious as I was waiting for my shipment from amazon and my OTTOBRE Magazine to arrive. Finally I can take a breathe of relief as everything showed up at my door by 1pm. I also picked up the new Threads Magazine and found some useful articles.


As you can see from the photo I have the Sew U series by Wendy Mullin. I love her book “The Built by Wendy Guide to Making Your own Wardrobe”. Surprising myself by almost finishing the book in 2 days. I’ve not peeked at the Home Stretch yet. Because I’m taking my sewing from a beginners P.O.V (point of view, I’m going to add a new course to my Fall syllabus *smiles*. I’m not sure how it will all workout but time will tell.

My favorite tip from the book is the sewing project ticket. This I know will keep me inspired and well organized.

Big Buy of the Weekend

My awesome husband took me to Joann’s and bought the Rowenta Professional Iron for me. What a great birthday present. I really hope it’s worth the cost. I read tons of bad and good reviews. Hoping I fall in the good review category I’ll let you all know my verdict.

This photo is sort of bright up top sorry about that.



Today I hope to receive my second shipment from Amazon. I did order a few books all are about sewing. I really want to perfect my skill and construct well built garments.
