To my surprise watching College Football on Saturday, Auburn vs Alabama, the Auburn Equipment Manager pulled out a sewing machine part way through the game! I snapped a few photos of the tv. His name is Dana Marquez. It was awesome to see a dude sewing in front of the entire college football audience.
Then he hand stitched once the jersey was back on the player. Sewing on tv in prime time!
I’ve been working away on my Vogue 8875 polka dot dress. Completed the bodice. Yikes. It’s a little tight. Hoping once the skirt and zipper are in it will look okay. The bodice is supposed to be loose-fitting but, umm, it will be fitted. Or I may have to squeeze on a little shape wear.
Anyway, I’m looking at my sewing goals for 2013 and looking to 2014. I still haven’t sewn trousers as I resolved. Though I did complete my sewing dare. Giving away from my sewing stash AND sewing something from my stash. I’ve also updated my links on the right side of my blog and added some completed projects. You know, blog housekeeping stuff.
I also have some sewing plans for my week off in December. I have a couple of appearances to make but also have big chunks of time to spend stitching. Can’t wait!
Here’s a treat. Pantone’s 2014 colours for spring. Dazzling Blue is their colour of the year for 2014. Maybe it’s time to stitch up that blue lace like I’ve been threatening.
