I've had this stripped knit in my stash for a few years now. It was a bargain purchase from Fabric Mart but when it arrived it wasn't quite what I was expecting. Enter McCalls 6398.
Have 3 more completed pieces to post yet so more coming.

I've got several new makes to share as I've been busy sewing since Xmas eve. First up is Newlook 6164. I picked this one up in a thrift shop, I really like Newlook patterns but you can no longer purchase them in Canada.

Merry Christmas! I finished an Ocean Wave quilt Xmas eve that's a gift for my brother. Just in time!
I have a week off from work so I'm hoping to get lots of sewing done.

Thought I would share a project that was sitting half done for a long time. It's a pattern from Better Home quilt magazine in Xmas greens and reds. The top was done for ages but machine quilting is not my favourite part of quilting. Large quilts are especially hard to push thru the thoart of my machine.
I have a second quilt top in queen size pieced together that I need to quilt soon as it's my brothers Xmas present. I will share pictures when it's done.
Long time between blogging again! There hasn't been a lot of sewing the past while due to renovations.
I picked up this pattern in a box of patterns for free at a garage sale. I thought it would be a good basis shift dress.

Hello! It's been a long time since the last post. I had my house on the market for the longest time, finally sold and moved.
I'm way behind on posting so I thought I would start with recent t shirt makes. All my RTW t shirts had seen better days so it was time to test out some patterns.
I liked the fit for the most part but felt it could be better. So I next tried Blank Slate Blanc t shirt pattern that I got free for joining their Facebook group.
