not in the mood,,, :(

The roller coaster that my life sometimes puts me a a blue state of mind,, Well I say to myself that little thyroid wants to put you in  blues? ha!! you will show it BLUE!!! 

Got my easy sewing patterns out and closed my eyes and boom! got this one!

Yeah! I got busy with the scarf at 2:45 am this morning!! the gloves I will probably get them down tonigh from other fabric, and this is the end result:

I love the way this scarf just so casualy gives you a touch of elegance,, even if you are wearing a simple white tee and hair in a pony tail you will look so so pretty!!

So this is my way of getting rid of the depresion that lurks sometimes in my life invited of course by my little foe hashimotos, but my sewing keeps it away.

Till next time.... have fabric dreams and sewing patterns wishes!

Here are the sewing patterns!!!!

Well like I said last night, here are some of the sewing patterns that I would love to get started (noted I just say "started" ha!).  The first one is the anniversary gift from my hubby!! Love you baby!!

I  so much love the lines in this dress, the flow, the way is going to camouflage the "problem area of my torso" ha ha ha! am currently looking for a great bargain in similar fabric.

This is one of the maternity blouses I just love this one so much! I had to alter it to be able to wear it now sorry but i did not took a pic before, I just brough in on the sides about 2 inches, the bottom had an elastic and made like a bubble effect I took it off and used it to make a hairband for me!

You can see the detail I put on the hairband buttons was the only thing I could come up with, I know may be too old to be wearing something like this, but is fun and matches some of the ones I have made for my girls.

Well I love this pattern, is a pj set from 1940! not sure what kind of fabric I will get for them, any suggestions will be appreciated

I got this one  and the one in the bottom for my girls am thinking fall dresses.

 Ok. so this 2 are my very first Burda sewing patterns, I just love the little jackets, school jackets am going to make first.

Well those are the sewing patterns am planing on working on for now I will have to look for a few jumper options for the school jumpers I need to start those ASAP!!

Till then,,, have fabric dreams and sewing patterns dreams!!!

A little bit at a time, is just right for now.

Well, by the sluggish that has become my life due to the always fun symptoms of my little foe hashimotos I have UFO left and right, down and up,, yeah my pic is just so right that little mountain in my back is my load of UFO, let me describe from bottom up, I have 3 maternity shirts that am going to alter to fit me now, I got a pair of my hubby's dress pants that am determine one day( hopefully before next year) to transform in to a very dressy skirt for me, I got several yards of fabric that will be a few dresses for me, got fabric to make my girls jumpers for school( ha! This is s super challenge school starts in about a month or so), then I have muslin for my hubs lounge pants/shorts ( he wants me lot make him a silk pj set he say on the net, at my pace it will be mu Xmas gift, ha ha ha,)and I have a bonnet for my little one, a up cycle/recycle thing with my girls tee shirts.

That is my friends that little mountain behind my back!!, will I get any of by a miracle all of my projects done?? Or will that mountain will just collapse on me, stay tune to find out!!

till next time,, have fabric dreams and patterns wishes!!!

P.s. I did this post already in my comfy bed in the iPad, so please be gentle if I have a horrid spelling, please? Xoxo.
