New Podcast and More Organization

For some reason, Trena and I like to take tw0-year breaks between our podcasting. You would not believe how incredibly easy it is to do now! Our latest podcast is up along with show notes. From the link you can play, download, and comment. Below, you can see us mid chat via Google.

 And, we are up on iTunes (feel free to rate our podcast there too). I’d tell you to play from the embedded player below, but it’s not available for WordPress ::shakes fist::  This time we talk about sewing machine accumulation, current projects and other assorted sewing things 🙂

I’m still plugging away at the HP Windcheater. There is so much top stitching!

My great success this weekend was making a lovely sample double welt pocket using Kenneth King’s method. The one on the Windcheater has a zipper behind it too. That one is not as lovely (the lips are too small). But, I like the decorative impact with the exposed zipper.

This weekend I also managed to finally get my thread hung on the walls!

And, I bought pegboard to install between my shelves and countertop. It’s not gone up yet because I need to get some wood for framing.

Overall a productive weekend. I still have six bins of fabric that need folding. But, it’s just a slow going process 🙂

After Two Years We’re Back!

Trena and I did a podcast over the weekend. I know, it’s been two full years since we’ve recorded one. According to our last entry we podcasted because we were so excited over the June 2009 Burda that we had to talk. Maybe it’s just been two years since we were blown away.

I can’t embedd the player here on WordPress. But, you can go to Podbean and use the pop up player or download.

In this episode we discuss both the May and June 2011 Burdas, changes to the website and magazine and what we’re working on now. It should automatically upload to iTunes. You can stream above or go directly to our Podbean site.

If you are on iTunes, please leave a comment / review there. We have six from about two years ago. And, we’re vain.
