Three Days Off!

A rare day, working at home, with a rather pesky charming colleague

Oh, goodness, gracious, me!

I have been quiet.

I would love to tell you I have been sewing away, but that is not the case. I had a big deadline at work, which kept me pretty busy. I released some documentation on Wednesday highlighting a wonderful new Dart feature— a tool for profiling your Dart applications. I just know you are dying to read all about Observatory!

What is going on in the sewing realm?

Well, I muslined a Lekala pattern a couple weeks ago. It was a disaster. A true wadder. The printout, the test garment, it all went straight into the trash.

I planned to write about it, but I haven't had the time. Maybe I can get to that this weekend, because the reason it didn't work for me would apply to others with my body type.

I also traced off a Burda jacket and altered it, but I haven't chosen a fabric to test it out. (I have a very special fabric that I want to use only when I'm sure of the pattern.)

Also, I've been watching the new Cocktail Dress online video class offered by Susan Khalje. It's very good! But I want to watch more before I blog about it. (This class is offered through her website, not Craftsy or other video websites.)

We both hope you have a great weekend!
