Sewing again!

It has been over a month since I have done any sewing, and it has probably been even longer since I posted anything on the blog.

Is anyone still out there???

I had a vacation in early August, and of course, bought lots of fabric, but just haven't gotten back in gear.

I ordered some beautiful Japanese fabric from Waechter's in Asheville. It is one of the most gorgeous prints I have seen in a long time. When I ordered it, I wasn't sure if I would make a garment or a quilt.

I decided to make a vest. Even though I only had a yard, I was able to center the koi on the back, and get some good images on the front as well. This is as far as I have gotten, but it's a simple vest, and I will keep it simple and just highlight the print.

When I get a little more finished, I will post another picture.

I hope this is the beginning of more sewing. I have just been lazy. I have some unfinished projects, and some ideas for some new ones.

And I certainly have enough fabric!

Hope to have something to show soon!
