What are you sewing this month?


Time gets away from us all when the longing to be outside is upon us. I’ve often wished I had a sleeping porch or better yet, a sewing space that was like a sleeping porch! That way I could smell the summer air and hear the bugs and keep sewing! Alas that is not what the studio looks like and with a sudden spike in the heat, it’s more like a sauna. While my children are still in school I am taking the most minutes I can away from the garden to finish a few projects. How about you? In the meantime- here are some beautiful projects for May!

Mid Length Coats-
We have started getting sun here in the Pacific Northwest! However that means there is still some over cast and rain in our forecast. Mid length coats are just the answer. Here are a few that help with the transition from wet spring to almost summer!

Lace and Eyelet-
Lace and Eyelets have been on my mind lately. Here are some beautiful examples of great technique with this sometimes frustrating material.

Yokes and collars-
One way to spice up the regular is with an interesting hint at the collar. Maybe you have an older sewing project you don’t wear? Spice it up with a cool bow or flouncy ruffle?

Straight to Cross
Straight lines are making their way back into the online community. The reality of sewing is straight lines and how well you can make it happen. Often you don’t see all of those straight seams when they are on the inside of a project. Here are just some beautiful criss-cross-straight-line-patchework projects.
