Multi Talented

Okay, I would like you to take a second and go up and read the secondary header on my blog. Go ahead. I’ll wait.

See where it says that there will be a litte reading, well you know, every once in a while I post a painfully embarrassing book review. Painfully embarrassing because I have not one iota of skill when it comes to writing a book review. It also mentions kniting. Well, I am on the knit-one-scarf-every-three-years plan, and I am only on year two for the current scarf, so you have one more year to wait. But see…see where it says sewing?? Guess what, I actually sewed something. I only sew in the summer, so I have this little flurry of sewing during June and July. Since I only sew two months out of the year, as you can imagine, I’m not very good. But since it’s in my header and everything, I decided to share my newest project. It’s a cute little top, made from some vintage fabric that I had in my stash. Oh yes, I have a ton of fabric in my stash and the rate I’m using it up, there will still be a ton of fabric in my stash when I’m long gone.

Simplicity 2936

It’s Simplicity 2936. It could also be titled, the pattern so simple even Pam can do it.

    OOOHHH! That’s so cute! I love the pattern on the fabric, and the stitched down pleats instead of darts! (I sorta wondered if you were ever going to sew, but I have enjoyed your couple of book reviews, BTW.)

    Beautiful! And you ARE a good sewer. I like how the insulators on the railing match the color of the top. Hey, maybe you’ll win!…you know…she who dies with the most fabric wins!

    It’s adorable! You are an accomplished seamstress! To sew a rounded neckline, pleats, buttons, and elastic around the sleeves takes skill, patience, and a good eye! I’m impressed! You’ll look very summery in this one!

    Ok, I have a confession to make, gonna suck it up and fess up.

    I am allergic to a sewing machine, oh yes I am:(((

    Glad to see you are not!!!
