gogokim Finally back to sewing for #memademay with a @burda_style skirt in the same houndstooth as the Ginger skirt! I have a lot of it to use I dos find a sweater to match the #bescrappy color of the week!
I have missed garment sewing! ( never thought I would be saying that statement)
8h
  •   rstogether I loved garment sewing, but dropped it when I started to quilt. The one frustration for me is pattern sizing. I'm self taught, so never learned about muslins which can make it so much easier. 6h
  •   gogokim @rstogether I am finding my with sizing through very helpful friends here, blogs and YouTube . The challenges are different than with making a quilt for sure! 5h
  •   amylouwhosews Memademay and my friend Merritt have gotten me back into garment sewing. Currently trying out tee patterns! I'm about ready to combine two to get what I need\want! Thrill swing at its finest!! 2h
  •   amylouwhosews And this looks great!! I'm going to attempt s pencil skirt with some wool this fall :) 2h

gogokim Here is today's #bescrappy block!
I used the free pattern by @charisecreates for The Splendid Sampler. I made a slight modification to the thread spool (I hope that is okay Charise) to give a shout out to my favorite thread company
I will be doing the embroidery when the weather warms up and my hands stop hating me
Have you grabbed your orange scraps yet? Join me and @yardgrl60 for scrap busting this week!!!!

gogokim I started out this morning making a skirt for me but I could not find the gingham fabric I have been saving (#honestsewingroom problems). I am instead making a beautiful #bescrappy orange dress using the FREE paper pieced block by @charisecreates for The Splendid Sampler 2d

gogokim So much fabric but there is only one piece I will never cut! Loving this #missingmarket Photo challenge from @thatcraftaddict! I will never cut this one yard piece of Alexander Henry Paloma Birds that is out of print and impossible to find. It is the first fabric that I realized how incredible fabric design is as art. I keep this one yard as a framed print and away from light so hopeful it will never fade ale sure to add the #missingmarket hashtag and tag me and @thesewingloft ️. I LOVE looking at fabric 3d
  •   yardgrl60 What a great piece to save for evah and evah!!! 3d
  •   jonquilsgrdn Beautiful!!!! 3d
  •   amylouwhosews Yes!! This is amazing!! 3d
  •   judycsr Ha...I love it in black. I will tag you with my yard that I've hoarded too but with white background. Just can't cut it either. the birds. 3d

gogokim Me and my @berninausa ( sung to Funky Cold Medina) . @pattyyoung has a great photo challenge for #missingmarket ... #whatisewon. I am a machine rescuer, I have more machines than I have space (hands up...who else does this?) my main machine is a @Berninausa 440qe that I have had for the past six years.
When I sew outside, I use a vintage Singer 301 that has perfect stitches and lots of power! It is so pretty too

  •   suesaylor Great thought!!! I'm just going to have to go for it 4d
  •   judycsr Sewing outside sounds wonderful!! And I have the same machine (440qe) 3d
  •   the_littlest_thistle Hand raised... 3d
  •   momma_libby_fakier I know I'm late to the party (just getting home from church) but thought I'd play along anyway. I, like @gogokim, am a collector. My first (and favorite) machine is a Bernina 630 and I bought it because it came with an embroidery module. I have loved every minute spent with "Bernie". I bought Babylock Grace's for my 2 daughters and they learned how to sew on them. Since then, I've bought 7 more machines (2 more Graces, Babylock Embellisher, 2 Bernina 530's for when my girls quilt, a Bernina serger that I never use, and a Bernina 710 that overwhelms me). Yes, I have a sickness! @thesewingloft @pattyyoung #whatisewon 3d

gogokim When I am not cooking or doing the dishes ( my other full time job), I am taking photos! I take about 90% of my photos in my kitchen at this side door. It is a Southern facing side of the house and gets the best filtered light. I have my props close at hand and a very understanding or at least a tolerant family ️. Thank you @the_littlest_thistle for the fun #whereitakephotos #missingmarket photo challenge 📸 4d

gogokim Anyone that knows me will say that RED is not my favorite color! I love red I adore red but the truth is that my favorite color cannot be reproduced. It is the real life color of aubergine the deep purple with black and brown is like a Rothko painting to me, It cannot be truly appreciated unless you see it in person. Thanks for the fun challenge @amylouwhosews 🌶 5d

Except in the winter, it has tile floors and is super cold! Thank you for playing along and I am looking forward to seeing your space #missingmarket #whereisewmqm 6d

gogokim Hi, I am Kim also known as gogokim!
I am so happy to be having this #missingmarket event with @thesewingloft and all of the fab designers and bloggers to have some fun!
Here are #fivethingsaboutme

1. I make CRAZY GOOD Mac and cheese! My kids friends even ask me to make it for them ️ 2. I was in honors choir and we made an album I love to sing and dance!
3. I am a TOTAL Thrillseeker! I have jumped off the cliffs in La Jolla, CA ( it is a felony now)
4. My iPhone has had a smashed screen for two weeks and between sewing/allergy shots/tennis season I have not had an opportunity to get it fixed . It is starting to look like a cyborg please excuse all my errors because I can only see the bottom half of my screen ️ 5. I have a great fear of math! I admire and am in awe of people that can do math easily
I am looking forward to meeting you and reading about your uniqueness
Make sure to add the #missingmarket #fivethingsaboutme to your post

  •   gogokim @ivory_spring he makes math more complicated because he does not know quilting math engineers 6d
  •   gogokim @cloverandviolet I am THRILLED you are here with us 6d
  •   ivory_spring @gogokim I totally get what you are saying.... Smart people tend to make their explanation much more than we mortals can understand!!!! You gave me the laugh of the day. I have a whole reel of scenarios playing in my mind right now where I am on the receiving end of explanations from very smart people!!! But you ought to be proud to be married to such a smart guy/engineer! 6d
  •   megmormel Loving learning more about everyone. 5d
