New Jacket completed for Houston

Back from the Original Sewing & QuiltingExpo in St.Charles, IL. Terri from Indianapolis was great help, and we had a blast. I felt the need this week for some 'sanity sewing' (before attacking the Halloween costume for grandson Cole) so after playing with the idea of cutting the Italian Trim down in width - about half of original - and liking the look, I proceeded to transform the lovely brown Bamboo/Lycra and Sillk Tweed I bought at the American Sewing Expo in Novia few weeks ago. I've had in mind I needed to do an additional jacket from my Celebration pattern - and when I reprint it next time, I'll add this jacket on the front cover. Meanwhile, I've added the details for this jacket, including the circular flounce sleeve finish. SEW....if you have the Celebration Pattern Booklet - take another peek at the associated webpage!

So now down to the business of getting ready for my first real wholesale 'Market' at Houston.

I'm REAL excited about my first printed 'book' - featuring 5 of my jackets. It will retail for $18.95. It's still at the printer, but at least my part in it is all done. was a quick, but good decision I think. We'll see......
