Hello to All You Ladies who are participating in the Mad Men Sewing Challenge. I just found out that Katie Couric is having a Mad Men event on her show on April 22nd. If any of us are lucky maybe we can get tickets. Mmmm.....yeah right. : ) I did put in a request anyway. Wouldn't it be great if we can go as a group and show our finished garments? Anyway, we can at least tune in on April 22 and enjoy the show from at home.

A friend of mine is leaving for Florida and wanted to transform a pair of her shorts into a skirt. I thought she was actually leaving on Friday, but she's leaving tomorrow. I could not have her go without her skirt, so I quickly stitched up the center front and back seams. Place her chosen mudcloth pieces, as she chose and stitched. At first I thought would use a zigzag stitch around the edge, then decided that a nice straight stitch would work better. Not too bad for a 90 minute job, huh?.
I'll have to have her send me a pic when she has it on. I hung it up in front of me and it hangs pretty well, with a slight drape at the center front. It was fast and fun. I plan to do some more skirts before the Summer hits. BUT with putting much more time in it.
