Pattern Cutout

Yay!! I finally got to sit down and cut out a pattern today. It's a pair of PJ's with owls on it for AG. I have been able to unpack most of my dolls, fabric and machines. Now it's just an area to clear off and find places for. I might just cut out another set of PJ's with a different owl print and sew them up at the same time. Each of my two kids have had appointments and I have a dentist appointment tomorrow, then my days are free to finish up unpacking or just sewing. :) I think I might take better photos of the outfits I will be putting in my Etsy shop as the lighting is better in our new house. Lots of natural light even on overcast days. I hope everyone enjoys the rest of today.

In our new house!!

We are finally all moved into our new house. Not fully unpacked yet, but we are in. It took us about a week to fully move in, but luckily we did it over March break so no worries about getting the kids up and off to school. Now the fun starts. Unpacking. At least my sewing machine is unpacked after a day of looking for the cords. We should be all unpacked, or at least mostly unpacked by the end of the weekend, so hopefully, my Etsy shop will have items in it before April. Yay!!!

Well, so much for that idea

I was all set to at least get some pajamas cut out so at least I would feel productive, but the fabric is so wrinkled, and flannel holds it's wrinkles, that it didn't get done. All my irons are either packed and under other boxes, or hidden behind the mountain of boxes. At least my cross stitching is still out, so I can do that. I am counting down the days until we get our keys for our house and then all this waiting will be over. 12 days to go!

I may not be able to sew, but...

I found just a few pieces of fabric that were not quite packed away, so I will be cutting out a few pajama patterns today. Maybe I can convince the hubby to move some boxes in order to access my machine! :)

I wish I was sewing...

This waiting is killing me!! I want to be sewing, but all my fabric is packed away. My sewing machine is sitting on my table, behind a tower of packed boxes, looking all lonely. It's just under 3 weeks until we get the keys to our new house, and time is going very slowly. I am still very sick, but I think I am on the upside now. Starting to feel a little better. On the upside, I won Thimbles and Acorns guess the illustrations contest! I am getting my prize of 7 shell buttons sent to my mother's house because the way the mail is around here, I would hate for them to get lost or missed. I have a picture of some of the outfits that I was hoping to get into my Etsy shop before now, but it was just not meant to be until after the move. I just have to figure out how to post from my phone to here. Hope everyone has a good day!

Hoping to have my Etsy shop open by now, but.......

I have been steadily sick since November and now we are closing on our first house on March 11! Just in time to move on March break. I am taking some photos of a couple of outfits that are ready to get put up on Etsy, and in doing this, I realized that some of them weren't quite finished or needed something extra. :) Buying a house has had it's moments as well. We found a house, did all the inspections and just before closing, the sellers backed out which left us back at square one. We then found a better house on the same street for the same price and everything is a go for next month. I believe everything happens for a reason. The second house was originally out of our price range, but they had to sell fast as they were relocating and found a house to buy, so it worked out to our advantage.

Best Wishes for us....

I know I keep saying that I will soon have my Etsy shop open, and it will. I have about 7 outfits so far ready to go. The weather here has been just horrible for taking photos. Snow squalls and no light. It is just horrible, so please bear with me. Also, we are in the middle of negotiating a fair price for our first home. We are going back and forth with the sellers, and hopefully by next week, the deal will be done and we can get our inspections done. When all this is finished, we will not only have a games/family room downstairs, but I will have a huge sewing area as well. I am excited, but not holding my breathe, as the deal could fall through. But it does look promising, hence the blog title.
