Very pretty skirt. I got a chuckle out of your comment about the sewing bug. It can be quite addictive, I agree. But I tell myself that there could be more harmful obsessions.

Jlg, Thank you so much for that list, and insights into your buying habits. Imitation is the highest form of flattery. Consider yourself flattered. PS My dh does our dishes--he doesn't like the way I load the dishwasher! Ignorance is bliss in this case.

Oh I am so jealous :) -Another great item! I used to have a hubby-cook, but his replacement does not know what a stove is!

Gorgeous! Your things are always so pretty, both in color and style, and always look so nice on you. If this is your "sickness," I don't think you need a cure. LOL

Thanks for your very nice comments. Penelope, my favorites are all online. I check out,, and almost daily because they have new fabrics coming in frequently. I have occassionally gotten fabrics that I didn't really like from and, but their prices can be great, and I've been very pleased with most of my purchases. For really nice fabric that I've yet to be disappointed in I like but he doesn't post new fabrics very often. Christine Jonson's site has great fabrics, particularly rayons and knits but also doesn't add new fabrics very often; you also have to subscribe to her service to buy all but the basics on her site (she is the only swatch service that I still subscribe to). Hope that this is helpful. Rebecca, I must say that I am definitely obsessed. I've given up almost all television, my husband's obsession is cooking so I never do that anymore and occassionally, I sacrifice sleep. This is definitely a sickness.

Your skirt is gorgeous! I love that sort of style, but since I have to lengthen all my skirts 2 or 3 inches, I've stayed away from attempting to alter skirt patterns with curvy panels. So instead I take vicarious pleasure in viewing the creations of others! Bravo!

This is simply lovely! How do you make the time to sew as much as you do? Inquiring minds want to know your secret..

Another winner. You have the knack for picking patterns and fabrics that go together (I have no clue) and that are flattering on you. Also, your fabrics appear to be of premium quality. May I ask about your favorite fabric sources?

jlg, really, I want to see your wadders. Every single garment you make is so beautiful! It seems like yesterday you were calling yourself a beginner--I think you make the greatest clothes and this skirt is no exception.
