Sewing Week

DH is on an annual business trip this week so it's Sewing Week for me!

And I've got about an hour to an hour and a half left on the red soldier costumes, and about 5 hours of work to do on the other pieces. Then I get to get back to choir sewing...for me and DH, since he passed the auditions to join the choir last week (fortunately, they weren't doing auditions when I joined four years ago; I'm not sure I'd've passed).

It's one thing to make choir clothes for myself...but it's going to be another to make it for him; May's color combo is khaki and, um, pink. I've got some pink oxford in the stash, so I think he's going to get a Jalie 2111 short sleeve shirt this week. Land's End has a couple of pink knit shirts on their clearance pages, too. So I'm off to send in a LE order...something I haven't done in a long time.

After that, you'll find me camped out in the sewing nook ;)


  1. Just wanted to congratulate you on being among the top five finalists with SWAP 2006. Way to go!

  2. Thanks, Linda!

    I was just going to post a link to the results tomorrow; you beat me to it.

    It was fun and I'm enjoying my new clothes. ;)

  3. Lisa, thanks for the encouraging note and I wanted to tell you I finished the prom dress last night. I figured since i had the template done that I would just go forward. It looks great. I am goin gto take pics and post them on my blog....and Congratz on the SWAP=)

  4. Lisa,

    I too want to add my congratulations on being one of the top five finalists! You had an awesome and very wearable wardrobe! Definitely worthy of the votes!!!!
