MY PATTERN HAUL

This weekend I bought some patterns that I cannot wait to make. Fall is around the corner, and although I don't do too much sewing for cold weather due to geographical location, I am still excited.

Hello Dezigners, I have been very busy with all my sewing projects. It has been a long time since I have been soo inspired and so amped to make so many things. Because of the energy to create, I have not had alot of time to blog. SO I am starting again today.  

For so many years I used to look in catalog and wish I had the money to buy those things or make them. Now that I have the money, I prefer to make them. I started back in May as I was preparing for my trip to Chicago for my youngest son's Naval graduation. And the mojo has not stopped.

And yes!! I am going to show pictures of my son, because I am proud of him.

This is the inspiration photo.
