Investment

I know...stupid play on words for my title, but I like it. I shot a quick snap of the vest and turtleneck when I got home from work before I changed for my workout. I obviously didn't check the picture closely, because the turtle has some funky wrinkles, but I assure you it was just the quick strike-a-pose before the timer snaps the photo. It was a very comfortable outfit for work and I have other vests planned. Work was good today...the day before graduation usually is pretty mellow and tomorrow should be the same, barring any visitor emergencies. And then it begins again...I really do love my job! Now for sewing...I have a Maggie London dress halfway done and should be able to finish it tonight or tomorrow. I worked on some patterns last night for a wool skirt (loving wool right now) and a dress/top pattern. There's an extra hour this weekend to help get some of these projects done. A little soup for supper and then up to the studio. Happy Halloween...everyone stay safe!

That's a nice vest. It looks great with your blue top. Love your Singer treadle! I have one in my living room.

Thanks for noticing my Singer...it was my Grandma Rose's machine...I got it when I passed my first treadle from my Grandma Julia to my cousin Becky. I think I was 10 or 11!

You look fantastic in your vest. It's a good thing to like your job! I loved teaching. I have 2 treadle machines, but not my grandmother's that I learned to sew on. I love your grandmother's name. Lol

You're motivating me as did another blogger this morning :) . Let's see if I can actually finish my coffee and get off the computer.

Love it - the bias on the lapels is a great detail.
