Quick Update

Hi! Just a quick update on my spring top week progress and some other exciting news. I have completed a pink knit tank top that I plan on entering, just need to get some good pictures. Tonight I have started what will be my final entry for Spring Top Week. I'm very excited about it because I'm using a pattern, but altering a bit and adding a placket from a Made By Rae tutorial. So far so good. I should have it done in time!

One of my tops made it on Rae's blog yesterday!! Keep in mind that this doesn't mean I'm ahead or anything, she just wanted to give peek to all the awesome spring tops that everyone has been making. She has them sorted by color. I'm in the Grey row. Check it out! I'm excited!! I can't believe voting happens next week. Rae is awesome for doing Spring Top Week. I have had a lot of fun trying out new things. It has been a great challenge and learning experience for me.

And now for my super exciting news!! Last Thursday, a very special package came for me. A new SERGER!!! I lost the Janome contest and was very sad. :-( Rick said I should go ahead and get one. Because he's awesome! I found a cheap one on Amazon that got great reviews and it was also featured on Sew,Mama, Sew! So, I got it. And I LOVE IT!!! It's a Brother 1034D 3/4 Lay-In Thread Serger

Brother 1034D 3/4 Lay-In Thread Serger 

It's so pretty!! I definitely used on my last 2 spring tops. My list of things to sew has just grown immensely. I'm super excited.

I'll be back soon with pictures of my last 2 tops. I'll let you know when to vote next week!


  1. I wish I had a serger so bad!!! It looks awesome on your shirts for the STW. I'm very impressed, especially since you just got your serger! It looks so professional and fancy :)

  2. Thanks!! I love my serger so much!! I got to use them before when I took a costuming class in college. I fell in love! Congrats on getting 2 tops into the top 60 for STW. That's so awesome!
