We've been HOT in Oklahoma the past few days. As in over 100 degrees Fahrenheit hot.

That's just silly.

Thankfully this week we're going to be back into a more normal mid to upper 90s (with Oklahoma humidity levels that's not really a whole lot better, but I'll take it.) For sewing, I've done...


So...I'm planning a project to get back in the groove. I'm going to give my first Hotpatterns a try, the Riviera Once, Twice, Three Times a T-Shirt. I'll be doing the tie-dye version with the cool ruffly sleeves.

I've never tried HP because I've had a couple of unpleasant run-ins with one-half of the duo, and because of others' poor customer service experiences. However, I'm nothing if not flexible (especially when it comes to cute patterns and inspirational youtube videos.) And I gotta say...Trudy finally won me over with the video segments. She's adorable, and fun, and extremely likable. Sold!

Here's my fabric:

Dudes. It was on clearance for 50 cents a yard!! Oh yea, cheap fabric, it's your birthday. (Insert twitchy hips here.)

Oh and you know I'll let you know if its a complete bust. Just keepin it real for ya. is D.E.D. Still on borrowed laptop. Bah. Mac, I'm sorry I ever forsook thee. At least one of you out there (are you still out there?? I'm never sure.) would probably argue that point quite eloquently and in a British accent. Good times.


  1. Wow 50 cents a yard. Now that is some extreme sale shopping.

  2. I'm right there with you in the 100's here in Texas. This is August weather! Add to that no rain for a month. We are hot and parched around here. Sorry about your computer. :)

  3. Dude, I'm twitchin' my hips with ya, can't remember the last time I got a deal like that! Sorry about the mac, but I'm a pc...

  4. Can't wait to see sewing. I need to email you and pick your brain - seriously. By the way - VeeDogKnits and I were talking about you the other day. Unfortunately the menfolk were on the deck with us and they thought bloggy friends were a bit strange. We set them straight right quick! g

  5. I LOVE the fabric where did you find it? Can't wait to see the finished top

  6. 100's, just like in here. It's impossible weather!

    That's a cute pattern and fabric. And at that price i'd be dancing too. :):):)


  7. Keep us (me) posted on your HP experience. I keep forgetting to email. You can add my email addy though: info (at) cabinbaby (dot-a-roni) com.

  8. So? Where the hell is the HP top? You've been a sewing demon lately.


I love hearing from you, and thank you in advance for reading and commenting! &
