No. 2 With all the petty sh*t going on…..

What’s going on my good people?  How is everybody this afternoon?….I hope well; I ‘m just sitting here watching Frasier on Netflix and eating a Circus Animal cookie ice cream cone….I’m okay around these parts as well with the exception that I burned my wrist beyond belief last Saturday and it still hurts soooooo bad…I called myself making a BLT…..the bacon was baked in the oven..I pulled the doggone pan and out and the grease from the catch pan rolled right over my wrist…a splash hit my leg too but my wrist is completely thrashed….I would post pictures but right now its so hurtful looking I don’t believe it’d be right showing it to folks….I’m still sewing right on through the pain though (oh hell yes, accccckkkkk *wincing*)…..

Any ole’ way I got up this morning with the intention of making a sundress to wear some time this weekend if I decided to go visit….I looked at the patterns I pulled out and for some reason my eyes set on the petticoat of a skirt pattern that I also wanted to at least get cut out….that pattern is McCall’s M6706 which has 5 views plus petticoat instructions too…I said eff it and decided that the petticoat is what I’d be whipping up….with my MadMen addiction I should have made one a long time ago but my sewing is just like me...Ca-razy!.…I  took to my stash which had the perfect sheer polka dot fabric that of course I’d been hoarding for at least 2-3 years….I bought it online from Hancock’s Fabrics and when it arrived I had absolutely no idea what I was going to do with it…mainly because I didn’t even know it was sheer; I didn’t bother to pay attention….I instantly thought of it today though….the pattern called for a contrast fabric so I pulled a piece of hot pink sheer fabric to pair with it….Now I don’t care for sewing with sheer and slick fabrics but their drape is just as pretty as they wanna be……sometimes you have to; and I own plenty of “slinky” fabrics ironically….smdh….the damn thang came out right cute….

When it was finished I asked my Huny if he liked it right?…yall know he gives “colorful”answers when I ask him if he likes my creations….An opinion of one of my skirts was: No Babe dont wear that wierd looking skirt from the 1800’s!….now I like vintage stuff but not that far back!! ::crackin’ up::..He sized my petticoat up the same way….its sheer so he says– its nice but where are you going in that?…I explained that it was in fact an undergarment and again all was well!…gotta love him amIright?…hell it is 108 degrees this afternoon so its sheerness almost made sense anyway!..

Well let me share the pictures now; and see what else I can whip up this afternoon…thoughts of outside coincide with spontaneous combustion at the moment so I’ll be sewing well into the night to avoid that occurrence…hahahahahaha!…share your makes and thoughts with me!


Isn’t she lovely? (in my Stevie Wonder voice)
Pink Cookie modeling my new digs…I couldn’t use the natural light from outside well; because its HOT….
the petticoat pattern isn’t pictured on the front; but it is on the back….instructions simple and easy to follow…it came together fast and easy….
My Singers were my helpers today…I bought a new gathering foot and Greyson was the only one who could fit it….

I sew a whole lot, I buy waaaaayyyyy too much fabric, and I have an obsession with books (especially sewing books and magazines), shoes, and fat quarters (and I don't even quilt)...Bags will always hold a special place in my heart; I still make em from time to time.....random fact about me**the pin cushions on the front page were made by my Mama and me....She made the yellow one and I whipped up the red one.....I can ramble all day about sewing and I feel a good ramble coming on sewwwww I'll stop here (pun intended).....Oh! My name is Christy but all my friends call me Chris!
