She’s Here! She’s Here!

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.


  1. 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?

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. 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! 🙂

  5. woo hoooo!
    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!

  6. 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!

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. I am glad to see that two internet buddies get together in real life. Glad to see you girls had a good time.

  10. 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 😉
