- Jalie's dropped pocket cardigan is a wonderful pattern. Made two, will make more. Not a cardigan so much as something you can wear over a T shirt to disguise the extra body parts and also sort of pockets with sleeves. Excellent for dog walkers, who carry a few poop purses.
- Louise Cutting's instructions are terrific. Every new sewer should sew at least one for the insights. Bear in mind though that her shapes are over-sized and sort of boxy and choose sizes accordingly. I mean who would have thought I would be an X small. But really great, great instructions.
- To sew in an RV one of those cardboard cutting maps is essential. You can put it on the bed or a picnic table. Hanging toiletry bags with compartments are good too for notions, mine dangles from the hooks for the ladder to the over the bulkhead bunk.
- A husband who cooks and cleans is also handy.
- Dogs have no idea why we are doing any of this or why we just didn't stay in the nice yard back home.
- My serger has given up the ghost on my. 20 years and innumerable services later I can't complain.
- OK I did.
- Already on the phone trying to get one lined up for when I arrive in Florida.
- I love American grocery stores. I haven't exactly come from the Gulag but really there is so much stuff. We walk the aisles and marvel.
- People leave interesting books in campground laundry rooms. Finished the one I picked up in Tennessee and leaving for the next reader here in South Carolina.
- A small black dog in a dark state park at night is a challenge. We had to get one of those light things for her harness.
- No idea if she was peeing or not
- The man next site is a musician from New York
- The lady working the next dryer is from the woods of Maine
- Her kids have sent them south this winter.
- Last winter there was so much snow she had to snowshoe across the lake to get coffee and the kids said enough
- Stayed put one night on a mountain because my husband had a feeling
- Turns out the place we were headed to was evacuated because of a tornado
- Us we stayed alone on the mountain until some lost hikers saw our light
- Husband took them down to the ranger
- Two RVs of families home schooling on the road
- RVs are not that big for a family of 6
- Those are some tough mothers
- Off to bed now so more later
- Pictures should be next

At the time, the relaxed-fit Grainline Archer was everywhere, and the Bruyere offered some unique details for a button-down shirt: a fitted bodice, a waistband, and general fit-and-flare shape.

About a year ago I attended Melbourne’s first restash event. It’s a get-together where you take fabric, patterns, and any other sewing supplies that you no longer require, put them onto long tables, then take home things that other people have brought along! I think that I came home with less than I took (which… Continue reading McCalls 7125read more
