It's FEBRUARY, and my installment over at the Mood Sewing Network is LIVE!

I'll sport it over here before Valentine's Day in a parade of coats... this is my third topper of the new year! What the what?! I've been catchstitching and quilting like a woman possessed!

(Oh yeah and thanks y'all for giving me the quilting disease. It's reaching plague proportions.)

But for now, fly on over to MSN if you'd like to see it on a human form. One which could not be sicker of gray skies and no fancy events. Maybe it's time for a quilted ball gown?

  12. Well even if it doesn't chase the grey skies away, with that jacket you're wearing your own sun.

  13. Awesome jacket! I love the fit, the lines and the internal bird fiesta. Jacket construction is on my shelf of skills I aspire to acquire (like saying no to baby sewing). I'm glad I'm not the only one who unpicks umpteen times for a millimetre. Sometimes I try to get my husband to affirm my militant perfectionism by waving it in front of his face and making him "see" the glaring imperfection. Responses are usually on a spectrum of confusion and general bewilderment.

    1. "internal bird fiesta." you are awesome. on the flip side, ruggy is quick to point out glaring imperfections before i see them. FUN!
