Not really blogging, but had to show you my new baby!

If you followed my blog back in the fall, you know that my machine first got dropped, then fixed, then went up in smoke due to a power surge!!!  That is one reason I decided not to blog anymore.  I was still sewing, on a couple of borrowed machines, but it just wasn't the same.  But, now I have a NEW BABY - her name is HONEY J (named for my grandmother, Honey, and my home ec. teacher Mrs. Johnnie J.) I've already had a problem with her, though.  I was sewing away when, I sewed over a pin (I know, I know this is a NO NO!) and a belt slipped off!!  I nearly cried, but my machine repairman, who is becoming my best friend, BTW, fixed it in one day.  I brought her home, and sewed all day yesterday.  She is very sensitive about some things, so I'm just going to have to learn how to deal with her personality!!!  Maybe, she's having to learn to deal with mine!!!  Anyway, isn't she pretty!?!                                                                          
I've made a couple of pillows shaped like an E and a G for my grandson's for a Valentine's gift.  And........ this dress for my friend's granddaughter.  The collar is made from two of my friend's mother's or grandmother's handkerchiefs.  The dress part is made from my friend's blouse that had pin tucks on the front and the back.  I turned the blouse around backwards and used the pintucks as part of the design.  I didn't get a photo of the back of the dress, but the pin tucks are in tack, as well as the placket and buttons from the blouse.  The dress opens all the way down the back.  The meidera applique at the bottom was just something I added from some dotted swiss fabric I had in my stash.  I thought the little yellow bows were just the thing to finish the look.
Now, am I blogging again?  I  don't know.  It all depends on if I have time with this new job.  I am finding a little time here and there.  So, I may have a here and there blog!  Gotta go do some job duties right now, as a matter of fact. 
The biggest issue is in not having time to read all of your blogs!!!

Rachel said...

I am so happy you got a new sewing machine---she is pretty. That dress is gorgeous, too.

Kim said...

the new machine is so pretty! I am so happy you got a new one- I hope Honey is good to you :) I am having the same problem as you are- work takes much more time than it used to- but I think I have decided the same thing- I'll have a here and there blog. The dress is beautiful Julia- sending you lots of hugs!!!!

Deb said...

Congratulations on your new baby; Honey J!
The dress you made is fantastic. Your friend and her granddaughter will love it!
Make blog posts when you can - it's always good inspiration to see your work.

Glad you're back! I have been coming to your blog for a very longtime now and was very sad to see that you were going to stop, I am so happy you didn't even if it is here and there :)! Love the dress, and the machine. I don't mean to pry but are you still in the same teaching position as last year? Congratulations on the Machine hope you have many happy hours of sewing ahead!

Trudy said...

Love your new machine and really love the name. Such a sweet little dress. It is so nice to hear from you.

Jackie's Stitches said...

I'm sure Honey J is going to be a welcomed addition to your sewing room. I know how devastated when your previous machine died. I hope all is well with you and that you're enjoying your new job.

gwensews said...

Congrats on the new addition. Cute dress! I know you will get back to sewing and blogging your beautiful things because-well, you're just too talented not to.

Julia I'm so happy for you! And so sorry to hear about your sewing machine. How frustrating! I am not blogging regularly on comin' home but I am writing a devotional blog .. just sharing my joural. I was so surprised to see how much traffic I got from your blog.. which prompted me to come see what you were up to. So excited about the grandbaby! I have seven now myself. :) Aren't they wonderful? Your work is just amazing as usual. I am sewing on three long standing projects and really just spending a lot of time with the Lord each day. Been through a lot this last year.. and so glad to be out in the sunshine again. Glad to read all is going well with you.

Donna said...

Haha! I just realized your new baby is your sewing machine and that you name yours. :) Sorry for the misunderstanding. I just found out we are getting grandbaby number 8 so I had 'real babies' on my mind. :)
