NanaSuz, any time you want to start a new topic on the forum you go to the top of the page and click on the small navy blue box that says "+New Topic" in white letters and that will open up a new box for you to start a new topic.

(At least that's how it looks on my desk top iMac computer.)

I really don't know!  Just start a new topic and don't bother what thread to put it in.  It may be wrong, but that's what I do.  I would love to see what you have to share.

I finished my first upcycled top today and just screaming love it! I will wait till I finish the second one to take pictures and post both on my blog as they will be exactly the same. I sewed the body of the top together last night and tried it on and was meh! This morning I worked on the collar and then after lunch did the sleeves. I had to pick on sleeve off and do it again. I also watched a YouTube video on how to french seam the sleeves and the inside of this shirt has no raw edges and looks as pretty as the outside. One bonus was that I kept the original buttons and front placket so that did not have to be redone. Now I want to start right away cutting out the linen shirt but have some work to do so might cut it out tonight. I just want to finish sewing by Friday when I drive back to Colorado.

I am getting ready to ship the scrappy quilts I made for my granddaughters in 2012 off to Maryland because it is time for them to graduate from high school. Here's one of the quilts to jog memories for those who listened to me moan and groan about all of the "leader and ender" piecing of 2.5 inch squares over a two year period that was needed to make TWO similar but different quilts for the identical twins my son blessed us with.  kissing_smiling_eyes   (Those dark squares are navy blue, not black.)

With all the ho-hah over travel restrictions for them I'll never get a chance to give the quilts to the girls in person so I am going to trust FedEx to do a good job of transporting them over the mountains this week ....

Judy I do remember you working on those quilts for your pretty young grandaughters. Whow they are ready to graduate! They are really pretty and hope the girls enjoy getting them.

It's hard to believe that they are graduating.  Do they have college plans?



From: judyinohio


Yes, they have college plans. My son sent me a list of all the places that accepted them and they are narrowing it down now. It seems as if they are planning to stay together for their undergraduate years.

Hummm....French seams in the sleeve.  Lovely!

I love French seams.  So elegant and classy.

Waiting to see a picture!

I will post photos after I finish the second top. I did get a good start on it tonight. The French seams in the sleeve really is nice and not hard, it just takes an extra step but we'll worth it.
