FAQ's - Friday's Frequently Asked Questions - Not in My Night Gown!

Since you work at home, do you ever work in your pajamas?  Yes!  I get up early and I am dressed and quilting before 8am.  But I have to admit there are mornings that I have quilted in my night gown til 10am.  On my birthday each year, I stay in my night gown all day, with the exception of my 50th birthday, as we had a big celebration, so I had to get dressed!


Because I work at home I dress very comfortably.  Recently I bought a wonderful Marcia Top from Heather another blogger, who sews for a living.  I quilt for a living, but I don't make clothes anymore.  You can check out her blog here and Heather's Custom Sewing Etsy shop here.  She has 4 Etsy shops and they are listed on her blog.  I received the Marcia Top yesterday.  I unwrapped it and I put it on right away!  I love it!  It is the perfect work shirt for me! I sent Heather the 100% cotton fabric. Cotton is so nice and soft. Heather did a beautiful job of sewing.  It is well constructed and very professionally made. I am sure I will order another one very soon, as I love it!


Remember I work at home alone, so I had to take the photos myself.  I know how to photograph quilts, but maybe not myself.  I told myself to smile and say cheese -- but it didn't help.  Now all of you out there who wondered what I looked like ... Here I am! Wet hair and all!






The neckline is straight. It is looks that way, because I have one arm up. Remember I am the photographer and the model too.
Nice side view of me!  Ha ! Ha ! I could be a model! I forgot to smile in this one!


I love the pocket!










Tonight I had my husband take some outside photos.  He's not a photographer either.  He forgot to tell me to smile!  It was only 60 degrees in Wisconsin today, so it was a bit chilly to be outside in the Marcia top!
Ritch thinks I look cute in the Marcia Top. I know he loves me!

I only answered one question today - Just felt like doing a fun one!

I like that top very much! I find that sleeveless only works for me on really hot days which we don't have many of in Maine, but it looks comfortable and cool. Nice fabric too!

Heather said...

Thank you for the lovely shout out. :) You look very nice in the top and I hope you get lots of use out of it. I love wearing mine too- it can get very hot/hummid here in mid-MO so it's been the perfect shirt to go to on hot days!

I am really laughing out loud. I always start quilting/sewing around 5am, almost everyday, and YES I am in my nightie. Sometimes I work until 10 or even 11 still in nightie, and I have been caught more than once making a mad dash up the stairs to put something on, when we get unexpected company. We live in a bi-level home and the entry way is, You guessed it, right where I am sewing. And the door has a window half the size of the door, so no hiding when someone comes to the door. Yikes, why doesnt my dog warn me before they make it that far. Keep telling myself I really have to start getting dressed before sewing, but just cant get it through my head. I like your shirt, very cute.

Aren't you the fashion plate?! Very nice work by Heather and you love mah-velous!!! And 60 degrees? Be still my heart. It's 8:00 p.m. here and still 88 degrees. Yikes!

It looks great!!! Kind of makes me think maybe I should order one. It was nice seeing you.

I wear sleep pants all day. Why dirty jeans? I want comfort! Hmmm, I may need to go search my fabric for a Marcia shirt.
