Happy New Year!

I hope you all have had lovely holidays and started off the new year with some serious sewing!

We had family visiting for a few weeks, plus a nasty cold (do you know how many dirty tissues five sick people generate in a day?), followed by an awful muscle spasm in my neck that required a trip to the ER. What fun, right? But all family members are now safely back in their homes, noses dry, and the muscle spasm is finally ignorable enough that I could spend some time in the sewing room.

McCall’s 6355

I’m working on McCall’s 6355, a Palmer/Pletsch pattern for a semi-fitted tank top, T-shirt, and dress. (My KS3003 has lost its TNT status because I found a couple of issues with it that I couldn’t fix.) Having read the mostly glowing reviews on PatternReview, and remembering Diana’s multiple versions, I thought I might give it a try. And then I saw Erica’s striped dress and it was a done deal. You see, I’ve been thinking spring lately. I know, I know, winter has just barely started, but my head is firmly in sunny, warm, spring/summer.

I have the pattern all altered and cut, now I just need to cut the fabric and test it. That will be tomorrow’s work. I’m already looking forward to it.

Happy sewing to all of you!

    have you tried sewing up a microwavable neck pillow stuffed with flax seeds? that really helped me when I injured my neck in a car accident. I hope it heals soon. 🙂

  2. Oh my goodness, what an incredible muscle spasm. So happy it was nothing worse. And happy that you were able to get some relief.
