  1. Happy New Year to my fellow seamstresses! ❤️❤️❤️
  2. I tried something new today! I used stretch lace to make a pencil skirt. I have never worked with lace, but I had a vision when I saw this one at Hobby Lobby. So, I bought a yard for $5. I lined it with nude swim lining that I had in my stash and did the waist band out of leftover black ponte knit from a previous sew. I still have to hem it, but I am very pleased with the look and fit. The lace is on the heavy side, so the swim lining kept it from being ridiculously heavy. Lisa
  3. What is everyone sewing this month? I finished up the Christmas gifts with bowl cozies that are microwave safe and 11” Christmas Trees. Now it’s on to sewing skirts for my cruise next month. Lisa
  4. This is the free pattern I used for the scarves. I adjusted the pocket size to accommodate large cell phones. There is a video at the bottom that shows how to sew this one and turn it right side out. https://www.patternsforpirates.com/product/free-pocket-infinity-scarf/ Lisa
  5. The alternate fabric is an 8 inch x 8 inch pocket. The scarf is not fully lined.
  6. Exactly that! And I am making them as Christmas gifts. Here are some that I made last weekend. Lisa
  7. Oh yes, the water was cold and the air temperature was around 50 degrees with 15mph wind. Breezy and Chilly. Morning races were in the upper 20's, so really happy we raced at 6:10pm. My clothes were soaked, so once we got the boat put up I stripped down to my sports bra and panties to put on sweats. Brrr...Hannah was a little surprised that I got changed in front of everyone. I was frozen and didn't care. Current project is flannel infinity scarves with 8inch zipper pockets. Yes, I am trying my hand at wovens. 😲 Lisa
  8. Pcur, great job on the top! I did my rowing race on Saturday, so now I have time to sew again. I trained really hard for 6 weeks and we had a personal best time. Hannah and I both happy and pretty sore after racing 5k on the very choppy Tennessee River in Chattanooga. I am wearing the purple shorts I made with fabric I ordered from Mood. The color matched Hannah’s Clemson purple shorts perfectly. I am the one with the number on my back in bow seat. Yes, we race with our backs facing the direction we are going. The person in bow seat of sculling boats is responsible for calling steering commands. Lisa
  9. Thanks! We are Rowing for the Cure this season, so ditching our regular black, red, and yellow uniforms for Pink. I prefer the pink and purple. I will have Walt take pictures when I have everything. Lisa
  10. Thanks Everyone! For the next month I am in full training for The Head of the Hooch Rowing Regatta in Chattanooga, TN, so there will be very little sewing in October. The only thing I need to make are purple rowing shorts. My double partner and I are wearing these shirts this season with purple shorts. Hannah rowed at Clemson, so she is wearing her college shorts. I ordered fabric from Mood to make mine. Oh, we Row for Atomic Rowing in Oak Ridge, TN, the secret city from WWII. Lisa
  11. We had a fantastic cruise and managed to take a few pictures of my creations. We were having so much fun that we forgot to take pictures. Lisa
  12. We found out yesterday evening that we are not going to Bermuda...YAY!!!! I have a tendency to get sea sick, so the thought of dealing with the rough ride to Bermuda was worrisome. We are now going to Princess Cays and Nassau. It will be our first time to Princess' private island and we are there from 7am to 5pm. In Nassau we are staying on the ship and making it a pool day. My outlook is, I am on vacation and this itinerary is still better than a week at the office. Carnival gave us a 25% FCC, which makes me happy. We have 3 cruises booked in the window to use it, so I will apply it to our Carnival Mardi Gras cruise once we get back. Ok, now it's time to finish packing and head to Charleston. I hope y'all have a fabulous week of sewing and post your creations. Y'all inspire me to sew more and more. ❤️ Lisa
  13. Carnival Sunshine, departing September 22nd, is now going to Princess Caye and over-nighting in Nassau. Official per John Heald's post a few minutes ago. Lisa
  14. We are also on the Carnival Sunshine leaving Charleston on Sunday for Bermuda on Wednesday and Thursday. My husband and I are referring to this as our Mystery Cruise. We don't know where we will end up going, but we will have fun no matter what. Thank you for all the updates! 🙂 Lisa
  15. I am off from work tomorrow, so I will be adding a few warmer things to my luggage. I am also throwing snorkeling gear in the trunk. If we find out on Saturday or Sunday morning that we are going to the Caribbean, then I can throw it in the luggage. Apparently, 80% of Bermuda is without power from Humberto. I have a strong feeling that we are not going there. Oh well, Walt and I will have fun wherever we end up. 👍 Lisa
