    Default All Hobbies Retreat 7/13 - 7/15

    Hello ALL!!! Does anyone want to have a virtual hobby retreat with me this weekend? I have my house spotless and laundry caught up just so I could sew and craft all this weekend. For starters I will be making DD a wristless clutch and me a hobo bag. Then I am hoping to move onto transforming a mans dress shirt into a dress for DD and maybe if I have time, one for me.

    I will post pics later this afternoon when I get home from work.

    Anyone in?????

    I'm in. The house will not be spotless and I will have to cook, but I have a lot of sewing to do this weekend. Taking a break from quilting a small quilt right now. I have 3 or 4 dresses for my dance group to work on, too. And maybe, just maybe, I can get the backing pinned on one of my older, queen sized tops so it can go to the longarm shop.

    ~I would love to! I got all my errands done yesterday and DH is home this Saturday morning for a change. I plan to exercise first and then I'm diving in to finish a summer outfit I'm making for the little one. If I have time after that I may even start some pull up diapers for her.
    Has everyone started this morning?~

    I did not get any sewing done yesterday, but I did get quite a bit of work on my dollhouse. We'll see where today goes.

    Ok, it took me more than one weekend, but I managed to do some trendy 'altered couture' on my jeans:

    Yes, that's right. I patched a hole.

    And today I finally finished the little quilt, now that the cat has allowed me to work on it again:

    The quilt was for me, it was part of a class I signed up for last year to get myself out of the house and meet new people.

    Now I need to figure out which UFO is next.
