Time Warp

Where have I been for months. I can't believe it's already March eh?

Ok I have been very neglectful of my site lately and I apologize for getting in this frump. I can't believe it's already March and I did very little posts in February.....1 to be exact and January I was pathetic as well..... with 2 posts. Do you ever get discouraged and uninspired? Well I have had crafters block for some time.

My parents have been down here in California and I have enjoyed their visit immensely! They were here for 6 weeks so that is part of my excuse and I'm sticking to it!! lol

So here are a few pics of what I have been doing and playing with lately.

I have made some fresh desserts for a neighbors party. This is a fresh fruit tart and flourless chocolate cake!

I have been making my own yeast and making wonderfully crunchy chewy sourdough bread:

I did a lot of sewing with my mom. We made two dresses a blazer, coats etc. I made a pair of adorable bright palazzo pants and I have two pairs of pants to hem now (I am a good project starter...horrible finisher). Pictures will follow once they are hemmed. Here is my moms blazer and dress, last two pics were out of focus darn!

Right now I am working on a pair of linen pants.  I got this packet from the sewing kits off of craftsy site for a ridiculously cheap amount.

I have signed up for yet another pants course......sigh I just can't seem to get a perfect fit!!!

I have to say this course is amazing!! Not what I expected at all this lady is so talented, witty and such an organized teacher! So easy to understand, eye-opening in the way you will ever think of constructing pants again following her easy rules for constructing pants and I am only half way through this course. I have taken four courses on craftsy  that have to deal with pants and I can't say enough good things about Kathy Ruddy!!!!! The course is called One Pattern Many looks: Pants

Basically you will make one master sloper for any pair of pants you will ever construct in the future. From waist to full hip it is all fit, from full hip to hem let your imagination go wild. So much better than buying multiple patterns.

I will keep you posted on my progress.
