Getting ready for the Quilt Show

I can't believe it has been November since I blogged. What has happened to me??!! Just too much to  do and no sewing. We had a wonderful trip to Jackson Hole to spend Christmas with 2 sons, 2 DILs, and 2 grandsons and lots of snow. Now, back home once again I've spent the week clearing away all the Christmas remains and I'm ready to sew. But first I must organize my sewing projects for the big show coming up on January 24 and 25. Once again I have been invited by the quilt guild to create a display of my garments for the big regional quilt show. It is so exciting to be asked to do this, partly because it is such an honor, but also because they feel there is an interest in fashion garment sewing. There is a separate display for the quilted garments and art-to-wear.

I asked my friend Barbara to share the space this year so we will each display about 10 outfits. Here's one of mine. This is the vintage jacket and dress pattern from EvaDress, based on an outfit Katherine Hepburn wore in one of her movies.

How exciting! And welcome back to blogging. That is such a beautiful outfit and sure to inspire many to 'test the waters' of garment sewing. Wonderful!
