Yesterday, I picked up my express package from St. Louis, one Marji of Fiber Arts Afloat! When I pulled up the BWI Airport, I honestly exclaimed, “You’re so pretty and tall!” Truthfully, I’m 5 ft 5.5 inches. My hair gives me an extra 2. She’s staying with me until heading to NYC on Wednesday.
This is tonight after dinner. I’m totally fascinated that we have about the same figure. Which means she has most of my fit issues figured out (evil grin). What’s funny, is Marji and I became friends through blogging and the internet two years ago. I honestly didn’t know that we would ever meet IRL (In Real Life).
While I had to go to work half the day, Marji spent her time in my sewing studio (*after* organizing it. I’m not kidding. I walked down there and stared for a minute trying to figure out why I could see the basement floor. ) we still managed to take measurements to work on my pants sloper. After I got home this evening, I took her to A Fabric Place, also home to Michael’s Fabrics.
I’m going to sew up the pant muslin tomorrow and draft my Bunka bodice sloper. It’s impossible to have a Marji and *not* get help with fitting. Seriously, can you imagine? I’m going to have to make something delicious for dinner to say thanks!
So, when you next hear from me, some detailed steps and photos of the pant fitting process! It was like a full class! You can read Marji’s post here.
Thank you so much for having me! It’s been so much fun so far.
I don’t know either one of you, but have followed blogs or on PR and this whole post made me smile. What FUN!! I love it. And I also love that you have similar figures. How cool is that?
I agree, Marji is very generous with her sewing knowledge and Marji, Renee is an amazing host and and excellent cook so you’re in for a treat too. Sewing friends are so much fun aren’t they.
Lucky you! Looks like you are having fun as well as the hard stuff (aka fitting)
she is so cute!!
Oh what fun! Isn’t the internet wonderful!
Sounds like such fun, enjoy.
I’ve loved it when I’ve met people from the blgosphere (including you, Miss Celie!!) It looks like you two are having a great time!
Wow, you guys are going to have your own little sewing vacation 😉 Have lots of fun!!
What fun! It’s so nice that you can spend time together. It really is fun to have another sewing “intense” person around. A different breed! 🙂
Wow! I’m glad you’re sharing you IRL meet. It looks like y’all are having fun.
How fun!! Have a great weekend.
You both amaze me with your productivity. You squeeze and enormous amount out of the mere 24 hours in the day. I can’t wait to read more!
Can’t wait to hear about the fitting!
Fun! Have a great time together (and looking forward to fitting pants picture!)
I am a tad jealous here! A fitting buddy who knows what she is doing makes it so much easier!
Lucky you, to have a fitting goddess visit! And I have to say that I love your living room colors. I am so afraid of doing entire walls in bright or dark colors!
Don’t be freaked out when I say this…but I feel like I know your basement, especially the part by the stairway.
Funny, my post today had the same title. I was trying to figure out how I posted on your blog. lol. My “she” was my dress form. Glad you and Marji are having a great time.
2.5 days! And seriously you two look like you are having way to much fun!
I’m jealous. Too much fun. If you gals want to come to Minneapolis…….let me know.
Looks like so much fun! And seriously, a pink microwave? Um, is that from the 50’s?
Sounds like it was lots of fun.
Look forward to seeing your Bunka pattern.
I have two of the books and waiting to receive two more 🙂
What fun for the two of you! I’m sure Marji is enjoying your cooking and the visit to Michael’s. Both of you have great skills so I’m sure your visit is very productive.
I am glad to see that two internet buddies get together in real life. Glad to see you girls had a good time.
I’m envious that you got to meet Miss Marji….I still haven’t – but then again Sydney Australia isn’t anywhere near your place not on the way to NYC 😉
