One of my many excuses as to why I haven't been sewing!!
My sewing has been very slow (read non-exsistent!) recently, between work, running and a recent trip to New York I just have not had time to sew.
I started the FESA Challenge with great intentions and I have made one scarf and a pair of Thurlow trousers is on my sewing table waiting for a waistband. But I am nothing if not determined, I just might need a little more time!
New York was amazing, as always. I ran the NYC marathon (another main reason my sewing had taken a bit of a backseat!) and it was the best marathon EVER.

I also wore the denim Grainline Moss Skirt that I sewed recently. I love this skirt, so easy to wear. With the cooler weather in New York, I teamed the skirt with tights and boots.
And what about the Garment District? Well of course I had to spend time here! Oh my goodness, after two hours I came to the conclusion that if you can't find what you are looking for here (sewing related!!), then it has not been produced yet!
I was actually so overwhelmed with the choices that I didn't even buy any fabric, I just could not decide!
I ended up buying 6 hand carved bone buttons. I have a vague idea that they will be nice on a plain black or white blouse. I also bought some fancy closures for my son's coat (still a WIP) and a little metal handle for an evening bag I plan to make. Last of the big spenders!!!!
