Ok, I finally got the Juki FS600 and after a little snafoo (is that the way it's spelled?) with threader, I'm back in business. Still no name that I can pronounce;) Geeksewing (aka- something else I can't remember) gave many suggestions but being the white-chic-from-Oklahoma that I am, I can't pronounce most of the them correctly. If you can help, please do! She needs a proper name.
Also, the PR contest starts next week and I've been busy changing my mind on fabrics and patterns. The tops will go quickly but the pants are another story. Unfortunately, I think it might be a hurdle I have a whim to not cross. Please help cheer me on to at least finish. I plan to keep a blog of the progress- good or bad. Sorry if it's full of pictures and wordy- you've been forewarned.
I have removed fabric from the running and ordered some really nice knits from Emma One Sock for a skirt. Furthermore, the top selection will now include #110 BWOF 1/09 top.
I'd love to make some pants from this issue but again, am chicken on such a time constraint. Three months doesn't seem like a short time but 10 items with a fitted jacket that will be lined and interlined will be a challenge for me since I am teaching again on my day off. (Stupid me for taking that assignment;)
Has anyone tried the BWOF pants who can give me the heads up? Also, I read about cutting out silk charmeuse using spray starch to stiffen it- have you ever tried this? Seems smart to me but I don't want to mess up the silk.
Fear is controlling my sewing- must take those pills for boldness... now where did I put them????
