Is Godet a swear word in French?


It is Wednesday, right?  Oh my, I have so many things I want to get completed in the next week, I decided to make it all better by ADDING a project,LOL!  Sara thinks I should not wear my usual uniform of Morticia Addams goodness. I was looking in my closet at the selection of black, black and black and I found I may have an issue. I think the people that run the IQM would be a wee bit offended if I showed up wearing nothing, not to mention the blindness that would strike down a good portion of the Market vendors, so I went off to my local Joann's and picked up a couple of patterns. This is the one I have decided to try first and can I just say, Simplicity is not what this pattern is!  I now remember why I do not sew garments. That aside, I will make this skirt and it will be AWESOME!!!!! If for nothing else, I love this Alexander Henry print. I have had it forever and saw that it is being sold at Joann's so if I mess this up, I can always get a bit more easily.




I started cutting it out early this morning

Godet sounds like it should be a French curse word :o) It my be my new, I cannot say a bad word because my kids are in the room word!!!!!



I also have been receiving my bee blocks in the mail for my Soldier's Angels quilt(s)!!! These ladies have done AMAZING blocks!!!!! If any of y'all want to send one or two red, white and blue wonky stars, shoot me an email!! I would love all the help I can get to make as many of these as possible!!!!

THANK YOU LADIES!!!!! You are WONDERFUL!!!!!!


At last but not least...it is that time of year again...WOO HOO!!!! Mark those calendars for Giveaway Day on Sew Mama Sew!!!!!!

LOL! I wore light blue today (instead of black) and my coworkers all day asked me if I was okay, if I was sick, if they could help me...it was hilarious!

ps. I'll totally make blocks for you, what size? I love donating to good causes!

That fabric is going to be fabulous as that skirt. I hope you will post a picture of the finished skirt! I find that I am happiest lately with McCall's patterns, actually. Not sure what it is about the Simplicity that makes them not-so-simple.

Ha ha! Hilarious opening, Kim. I love your skirt fabric (and have some). I can't wait to see the finish. The stars are really looking spectacular together. They will make a lovely quilt.

Quelle belle jupe à godets!! (godets means also "glass" so for the summer you need a "glass-skirt"!) But I agreed with you "godet" may sound like a swear word sometimes!! ^^
