Posted by Helen | November 14, 2018 | Wednesday Weekly

Happy Wednesday! I just got home from a weekend with friends where all we did was play board games and eat junk food and it was AMAZING! This week, Sam and I are working on rebuilding our apartment now that all of my sewing stuff is out of the way and safely in the new office. It feels really empty in our home space! We will be trying to make it cozy before the holiday craziness sets in. I am also hard at work on a new pattern and loving being in the throes of sample sewing and tweaking. Without giving too much away, this one will be a great layering piece to pair with York or Blackwood!

Thanks for linking to my jacket. Man, I love that thing. It’s so cozy, and yours was a definite inspiration. I loved checking out everyone’s projects, and I thought the sewing and transparency post was great. Sewing definitely teaches you about a lot more than just sewing when you get into it. That always amazes me.

Oh wow! Thanks for the love as usual Helen! ❤️❤️❤️

These posts are so useful – I don’t feel like I have to try and keep up with all the pattern companies, because you do it for us! Thanks! By the way, unusual word alert: I believe you are enjoying the *throes*, not throws.

Whoa! I did not know that! Thanks for sharing 🙂

Thanks a million for the shout out Helen! I love my Elliot sweater dress- think I’ll be living in it all winter long!!

Thank you for sharing my tops Helen! Leisl’s frocktail dress tho!
