Still here

Sorry for the long absence. Between a busy life and computer issues I haven't been around. There has been a lot of sewing and a little knitting going on around here. Unfortunately, Maggie is no longer with us. Her medical issues compounded quickly and we had to put her out of her misery. She was a good dog and protected her boy as much as she thought she should. We miss her but know she is out of pain now.

Here my first BSJ. I say the first because I am sure there will be more in the future. The recipient loved it and said it was perfect for her little guy. I did not put buttonholes in it, instead I sewed on elastic loops for the buttons. I like the way it turned out.

Next up is one of my favorite wardrobe refashions. If you are of a delicate nature you may want to skip this one. I took some really soft t-shirts that weren't getting used as much as they should.
I made a pattern from my favorite pair of ready made underwear and cut up the t-shirts. I took some other underwear that were in my drawer that didn't fit right and cut the nice elastic off to use on my handmade ones. I have a total of about 6 or 8 pairs and rarely wear any others. They are so soft and fit me great. I plan on making more in the future as needed. Try it, you'll like it.
I will try to post more regularly in the future.
