BLUEberries, at last. Hello my little friends...and goodbye! #blueberries #fruit #berries #breakfast #gardening #sunshine #nature #sunrise #happiness #nofilter

#TBT Visited a friend last week and got a little tour of her studio. Sewing Room Envy in full force! #sewing #sewingstudio #sewingspace #seamstress #fashiondesigner #goals #throwback #handmadewardrobe #makersgonnamake #makersmovement

Good day (I have the sunburn to prove it!) Watched the Sheepdog Trials at Dancing Ewe Farm and then took a meandering route home, stopping off for ice cream. #staycation #upstateny #dancingewefarm #sheep #farms #washingtoncounty #redbarn #rurallife #icecream #latergram

Since we're halfway through 2017, it seems a good time for a little reevaluation. When I initially made my #2017MakeNine picks, I was admittedly a bit frazzled. I was new to sewing and was overwhelmed by all the patterns & pattern companies out there. My goal was to pick patterns that would teach me something and challenge me. I have so far only completed two. Looking at my original picks, I feel disheartened over my lack of progress. This was not how I had planned it. But I don't want to give up on this challenge. Time for a change! In order to refresh my attitude, and do a bit of a Stash Bust of the patterns I've accumulated, I'm hitting the reset button. I have held onto two of my original picks and made seven new picks to create a totally unsewn Nine.
Here is my Revised #2017MakeNine :
●View D from Simplicity 8340
●View A from McCall's 4261
●View C from Simplicity 8339
●View D from Simplicity 8263
●View D from Butterick 6295
●View A & C from Butterick 6296
●View F from McCall's 7610
●View B from Simplicity 8176
●View A from Simplicity 8294

Not much to show for my #SewingWrapUp because my SewJo was in SlowMo this month. But one thing that I did manage to finish was the Ruffle Tee from @selfassemblyrequired (Swipe to see a poorly lit mirror selfie) Made a few mistakes along the way, but I still love it. #SecretPajamas for sure! Scooped the back neckline to match the front and opted to fold under instead of attaching a neckband. Will definitely make more of them. {{{Head over to Emily's blog to get the Free Pattern}}} #SARruffletee #sewing #memade #handmadewardrobe #sewist #freepattern #bekahsews
