Fancy a wee catch up?!?!

Hello there peep’s

So, As you all know dear readers, I am indeed a sporadic blogger! As much as I wish I wasn’t that is just me.. I plan on keeping on top of Solely Sewing, this is post is more for me than it is you if I’m honest! I am giving myself a public kick up the ass!! 

 

So a little catch up for you all huh….

I am still sewing away and have been recently finished a Mother of the Bride Jacket with matching embellishments and a wee clutch, true to form, I forgot to take a photo of the finished garment! WALLY

I am also still working away on alterations, my current jobs are a white trousers and top (two piece set) that needs taken in by one size (10 to 8) And a lace communion dress that needs taken in 2 inches and the sleeves to be lined as the lace is itchy on the arms, I’m planning on using light weight muslin. As ever there are trousers to be shortened…. Is anyone else drowning in these!! it’s crazy, that being said when you find a pair of jeans that fit just right, there’s no problem in getting them the right length!

I’m in the last few weeks of my pattern cutting course, which is going real well. I have my skirt pattern drafted and am now moving on to my top, it is a mini collection (Trio) and I am hoping to get these in to PDF form in 2015, when I have got used to my routine and my time management problems have been resolved!

My other news is that I now have a job, I’ve been easing into it. I have my first week over me and I have to say….. I am loving it, it’s a new project called “The Fashion and Textiles Hub” I am super excited to be involved in such a innovative business. This opens in the summer and we are now getting everything prepared for the big opening, I shall be sewing…. Amongst other things, the sky is the limit! 

I also have family/home life to keep up with… HOW DO PEOPLE DO IT!!!!!Image

 

I will keep you up to date on my new work adventure, as well as everything else….. This again is my public ass whooping, and purely for my benefit!

So do you have a lot on?!?!  

How do you share your time out?!?!

Time Management tips in the comments please!!
