This one is going to be random. There's two that I want to tell you guys. First, the mister and I have started composting. We bought composting bins from the city. After a lot of research, we figured out what we can compost and it changed my world. I want to compost everything! I didn't even know we can compost cotton and wool! Since I sew with mostly cotton I was happy that I can compost my scraps. That's something completely new to me.

I'm super excited that there's going to be a Blogger (or seamster) meet up! Since I've started sewing and blogging I've always wanted to go to a LA meet up. I wanted to meet other people that shared the same hobbies. I wanted to pick their brains, try to get new ideas, and support each other.
It all started very innocently with a comment that Erin made on Instagram saying that there should be a LA blogger meet up. I emailed her and Laurie and little did I know that she and Jill were in the jist of planning one. Laurie and I just jumped right in.
The juicy details. We're meeting up at Cafe Midi at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 14th, so we can get our energy to look at gorgeous fabric. It's conveniently located next to The Fabric Store, so we can eat and just head right next door to shop! During lunch, if anyone wants to participate there's going to be a fabric/pattern swap. I'm super excited to participate in this too! Eep!
After lunch, of course, we're going to The Fabric Store and from there we're heading to Moods. I live ridiculously close to Mood, but I've never been there. I'm super excited to go and check it out with everyone.
Of course, you don't have you join us for lunch, but I'm not sure how long we're going to take. You can email me and we'll exchange numbers, and if you text me I'll let you know where we're at.
I hope to see you guys there! If you guys are interested in coming, please email Erin by June 7th so she can set reservations at Cafe Midi.

I'm a sucker for solids. I mean I love a good polka dot and floral fabric, but I do gravitate towards solids a lot. I've been wanting to make the Lily dress in Navy for quite some time. I've just put it aside for other patterns, but I do like the simplicity and fit of the Lily dress. The Lily dress is my ideals silhouette and pattern.

Hey! I know I've been abandoning my blog and our coffee dates, but here I am. I've been sewing, I promise, but it's kind of hard to get out there and take pictures. It's hard waking a few minutes early to take pictures or it's hard to take pictures in the evening. I know, I'm just complaining. I promise to do better.

Hey, guys! It's really sad, that I'm late to the Coco Party, so late that I didn't even make it. It's kind of the story of my sewing lately. I ordered the pattern before the Coco Party. There was some mishaps where my order didn't get shipped until a week later, but Tilly is sweet enough to gift me her Miette skirt PDF. I finished a polka dot Coco the day of the Party. I just didn't have time to take pictures of it. I haven't taken pictures in a while. It felt weird, but I like it because I get to share with you guys what I've been making.
