This morning I was up early so I decided to take my camera along for a walk around the reservoir. With the warmer-than-usual fall we’ve been having, the colors in Manhattan’s Central Park are just getting started. But the light has already changed. There is something softer and more diffuse now…which makes for some painterly photos. Enjoy (although you may need your sunglasses to view some of these photos!)

My 2nd-hand Necchi sewing machine died recently.
Which left me with material and a zipper for a pair of concert pants and no way to make the pants.
Even worse, I made this nice pair of pencil pants in May…
And was extremely proud of the fact that I modified the waist so that the look was less Mom-style pants and more “hip” (in both senses of the word.) But my modifications resulted in a problem – waist gap. And even though Kate Middleton has made showing off her (lack of) underwear a somewhat “in” thing, I’m not comfortable going that route.
Fixing the waist band means taking it off, re-cutting and re-sewing, so I splurged and bought a NEW sewing machine. It’s a Pfaff Smarter model and I was assured that this basic version will do pretty much all I need.
(Besides, it goes with my decor…)
Learning to make your own clothes…what could be smarter than that?
