I'm Baaack!

I didn't fall off the planet, honest. I've just been very busy getting ready for my New York City trip. Now I'm back from my trip and I'm a few Blog entries behind. First I want to share how B5219 turned out.

You can't really tell in this photo, but the neck is a bit too wide and the armholes are way too short. I didn't change a thing in the pattern. NOTHING! So, to be honest, it doesn't look that bad. If I make it again, I'll do a FBA, lengthen it, and lower the armhole--a first for me. I decided to make my muslin a pajama top because I needed some PJs for my NYC trip. The fabric had been stashed for way too long. It's very comfy and turned out cute, if I do say so myself.

I've been neglecting to mention those who nominated me for the Sisterhood Award. Thank you so much Mary, Omega, Louella, Linda, and Sue. I think I'm too late to find a sister who hasn't been nominated, but I must admit, I feel anyone who sews belongs to the sisterhood. I'm honored to be nominated and thank you to everyone who visits my blog. I may not say it, but I'm thrilled when anyone stops to read my blog and even more so if you take your time to leave a comment. I read them all, usually several times. I learn so much from them.

I still need to photograph the fabric I bought in NYC and go through all the pictures I took while I was gone. I hope to post about it tomorrow.


  1. Your PJs look great! I love the colors. Can't wait to see your fabric finds. ;)

  2. Hi Sherril!
    So NICE you received the Sisterhood Award!! I really think THAT's a special thing--sisterhood, that is!!
    Are you referring to a PR NYC week-end or a trip on your own... Obviously, I'm not "up to date", eh!!
    Soft hug,
    Rhonda in Montreal (PR)

  3. Welcome Back! You were sorely missed. I had a feeling you were making the rounds of the Garment District. Can't wait to see your haul!

  4. Welcome back, Sister! I always look forward to your reviews. Hmmmmm, are you serious about calling this a pj top? It sure looks tooooo fine for that. At least you will be lounging around in style. I cannot wait to see what you you will create with this pattern!

  5. I love your PJ's, I've been missing you. Hope you had a wonderful NYC trip, can't wait to see pictures.

  6. Nice pajamas. Looking forward to seeing pictures of your trip and of course--fabric.

  7. Missed you, Sherril! I'm glad you're back.
