Back Shortly ...

Hello lovelies! I have been immensely busy as usual with work and enjoying these ending summer weeks. Life is good. However, I have also been preparing a fun little project that's nearly completed. Hint: It has to do with silk and using the rest of my amazing remnants.  Stay tuned ...

There's much more to come in the next few days so until then just sit back, hold tight, and enjoy these quick snapshots!
 The process begins ... Inspiration, patterning, cutting, pinning (with pins not pinterest), and sewing!
My patent leather croc case that I made for on-the-go sewing projects like these. It's clever and keeps all of my notions within reach!
Oh yes, I finally finished browsing/reading all of those gloss pages that had piled up. It was quite the workout, and my eyes were jumping towards the end. Rest will commence shortly, but after project completion.

What are you up to this weekend? 

I also want to take time to thank YOU dear readers, you are greatly appreciated! And sending a warm welcome my new followers!

In case you've missed a few past posts here are this week's most read links on Fashion Tales:
