#2 Sew Monday Meets
How was your sewing week last week? Did you get done, all that you had planned to sew? I find it is a win win either way, when I get to sew the projects I had planned to sew I am excited to have completed another piece. If there are setbacks and I have to grab the seam ripper, no problem that’s more practice, it’s actually a nice challenge to solve what has gone wrong making you appreciate the end product even more. When I don’t get to even start a project I had planned I have found though, I would have expected to be upset by this….. (yes I am still talking about sewing)…. that absence makes the heart grow fonder and instead of being upset I cherish the moment when I will get the chance to sit and sew. Having a busy household to manage with my two boys, two cats and full time work, I take any time I can get at the machine as a blessing and will even squeeze in 10 minutes if that’s all it will be. Enough about me, today for our second post for our regular feature ‘Sew Meet Monday’ I have the pleasure of introducing to you the talented Brenda! sewing blogger who writes at Sew646.

This is difficult, as every blog post I opened my jaw just dropped! The flannel shirt post was the first time this happened, why, you may be wandering? The flannel shirt has a plaid pattern with chest pockets with inverted pleats and the pattern matching is not only spot on, it also creates an eye-catching diamond pattern. Then I went to the first ever blog post expecting to find a simply sewn garment, only to find a gorgeous hand sewn leather handbag, that would give most department stores a run for their money. The post continues to detail all the steps taken to achieve the exquisite piece. Until reading this post, I had thought I would never venture into leather bags, however I now think I would like to try out bag making perhaps starting with a small purse. As well as looking at Brenda’s hand crafted pieces head over to Sew646 and see if you can work out what the 646 stands for?
