From My Sewing Table: August


The last hurrah of summer has begun!  Even if the calendar didn’t give away the truth, the local fair starts in one week and that has always been a sign that summer is almost over.  Of course, that just means one must enjoy every last drop of sun and warmth!  Something I most definitely plan on doing!   And with that said, construction on my house is coming to an end and I couldn’t be happier.  I am looking forward to enjoying the last bright days sipping iced tea on my front porch.  Gives me chills just thinking about it.  🙂

My kitchen has been quite a busy little spot as I have just finished canning dill pickles and salsa!  Yum!! All I have left to do is can tomatoes in a few weeks and my pantry will be stuffed to the gills.  If any of you haven’y tried canning yet, I highly recommend it as it gives such a sense of accomplishment.  Just make sure not to do it all in one day….it can be a little too overwhelming.

I have also finished recording a three part sewing series that will start this week!  It was very fun to create and I plan to make more as time goes on.  If you have any ideas or skills that you would like to see, please let me know in the comments.  I am also in the beginning stages of developing online sewing lessons focusing on vintage and historical sewing.  More details to come in the future!

In my historical sewing world, I have had fun for the past two weeks getting back into Regency sewing.  While nothing replaces the passion I have for sewing vintage, it was such a thrill to delve back into a style I haven’t done much with in a few years.  Here are few pictures of my latest creations:







Many of these are now available for custom order on my Etsy shop! 🙂

I do, however, want to take this opportunity to let you know that there will be one new change coming to my blog starting today.  I have decided to go down from posting three times a week to two times a week.  This is by no means a sign that I am going to stop blogging or that I am going to become inconsistent with my blogging, it is simply a way to create better, more content rich posts for you.  I am eager to begin offering more historical/vintage sewing videos and tutorials and since these take more time, having a slightly smaller posting schedule will allow me the extra time I need.  So, instead of Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, I will be posting Monday and Friday.  I hope you understand and are just excited as I am for the new sewing posts to come!

I wish you all a wonderful start to August!  See you Friday! 🙂
