Winter is coming

Wow, it's been a while. I have nothing incredibly important to write about. I've been preparing for Christmas, reading The Lord of the Rings which I'd never read before, and settling in to my new job.



For those of you who haven't figured it out yet, I'm a lazy picture taker. After I took this picture I made an ivory and red toile valance that looks great with the golden yellow walls and all the Christmas decor. I have never decorated for Christmas like I did this year.




And here's the tree. Lonnie, Meredith and I decorated it the Friday after Thanksgiving. We had a blast!

Project Updates

I've come to the conclusion that I'm not going to finish my sewing challenge. My sewing mood went away as soon as the weather cooled off and my garden started calling my name. It called ever so softly, beckoning to me "Come outside."

I did get two items completed. A cowl neck shell in a lovely magenta wool-blend fabric and a navy pencil skirt that is very versatile.

My to-do list grows every day, but I've gotten a few things checked off. I have made decent progress on my NaNoWriMo novel, which stands at just over 13,000 words. Here's my profile: http://www.nanowrimo.org/en/participants/jltidwell

I'll be uploading it here chapter by chapter once I'm done. It's not particularly well written, but I haven't gotten around to editing yet.

How is your to-do list looking?

Checking in

I'd intended to write more this month, but I started a new job, I've been putting my garden to bed and getting it ready for winter and I've been toying with the idea of starting a new novel.

Anyone else participating in NaNoWriMo in November?

I really don't have much to update, but I did add some new pictures to Flickr.

I'd also like to say a sad goodbye to Misty, one of my kitties.

My brain hurts from all the information I'm trying to absorb at work, so I'll leave now before this devolves into something bizarre.

I hope you are having beautiful fall weather. I'd love to hear from you!

Fabric Shopping

I'm reaching out to my readers to ask for help. I love online fabric shopping as much as the next person, but I need something more. My relationship with fabric has become boring and I need to spice up the routine a bit. I'm looking for out of the way fabric shops and warehouses that sell mill-ends, discontinued items, etc. I used to have a list, but like most of my lists it was misplaced and lost in the sands of time.

I need deals, steals and squeals, and I need your help locating them. My primary target is apparel fabric, but I don't mind if there is a good mix. I live in North Mississippi and can travel several hours in either direction, so we're talking TN, AR, MO, AL and possibly Southern KY.

Important info: Name, location and contact information for the store.

In the interest of fairness, I will also take recommendations for online shops that I might not be aware of.

Post away!

Color Palettes and Wardrobes

All this color palette creation has led me to some interesting places on the internet. My new favorite color toy is Colour Lovers! You can import pictures to create palettes with the Photocopa tool, browse other people's palette creations and have all sorts of fun playing with your new colors. You can see my palettes here.

For anyone who has never visited the Pantone site, I highly recommend it. More specifically, visit the Fall 2011 Color Trend page. I don't know why I keep forgetting about it - I love this year's picks.



If you are participating in the Colette Fall Palette Challenge, or any palette or wardrobe challenge for the fall, please feel free to leave your link below. This widget will be open through the end of November for anyone who happens to stumble across it later in the season.

Other wardrobe challenges (some ongoing, some limited, sewing, remix, etc.):

Yummy Stuff

I finally got around to trying one of the "Sizzling Salad" kits from Kraft and I have to say it was pretty good! I got the Caesar salad kit with cracked black pepper cooking sauce and Caesar dressing. Instead of just cooking with the sauce, I marinated the chicken for about 3 hours prior to throwing it on the grill. My only complaint is that the servings are very high in sodium - 47% of your RDA if you cook and serve as suggested. I rarely use as much dressing as indicated in a serving size, and Caesar isn't my favorite. It's definitely something we can't eat all the time, but was a nice treat and something different.

For some Halloween fun, I ordered the Jell-O brain mold. If you don't already know, I love Halloween, and I love gross/creepy stuff. The brain shaped gelatin mold is right up my alley. AND Coupons.com has a FREE offer, for only $2.95 shipping. I'm sure supplies are limited!

Just like everything else I enjoy, I get on cooking kicks. Lately I've not been feeling it. I'm on a sewing kick right now so I'm taking advantage of it. I really need some suggestions on what to cook that won't bore me to death, or take too long to prepare. We love to grill and our weather is temperate enough that we can grill out most of the year. Anything of that persuasion is always good.

I'd love some suggestions in addition to my cooking wish list. Warning! Pinterest can be highly addictive.

I also have a kitchen wishlist that I haven't looked at in a while. Most of that stuff is probably no longer available. That's how long it's been since I actually looked at it.

I want to eat, but sadly I do NOT want to cook anything right now. Apparently everyone else in the house is in the same mood. Ha! What are you in the mood to cook and/or eat?

Fall Palette Challenge Update

I have completed one piece(McCall's 3830), need buttons for another (New Look 6407 OOP), and have done a full bust alteration for a dress (Butterick 4443) following this method since I wear a 38DD bra and patterns are usually sized for B cups unless you can find one that includes different cup sizes. I haven't done any cutting on the dress fabric yet, and I won't be able to post pictures until after Lonnie returns.

I think I'm going to use yellow pearl snaps for the shirt because I'm 1. lazy and 2. they look better with that style of shirt in my opinion. I'll probably get them from Snap Source since they seem to have the best color range and price and I only need a few.

To be honest, I really don't like the shirt pattern. Well, I like the pattern, but the sewing directions piss me off. I've made it one time before and the same issues were apparent this time. If I make it again I will have to alter the construction directions a bit because I really don't like the way the collar goes into the neckline. It's cumbersome and could be done a lot better I think.

Anyone sewn this pattern successfully who might have some construction tips?

The dress only calls for a bodice lining, but I think I'm going to line the skirt as well. The fabric is somewhat thin, and I despise wearing slips. Anything I can do to avoid them is fine with me.

The skirt I made also does not call for a lining, but I made one easily enough. It's just so much better to line things that have skirts if you can. No panty lines, no slips and no dress wedgie if you wear thong underwear. Win-win.

Since I don't have any pictures of finished garments, here are some scanned images of the fabrics.

Navy pencil skirt

Navy pencil skirt fabric. You can see the dark blue and gray-green threads that are woven in. I have had this fabric for several years and don't remember where I got it.

Stripe shirt fabric

This is the fabric for the short sleeved shirt that just needs pearl snaps to be finished. I doubt this will ever be worn without a jacket or vest over it. I really need to find a different shirt pattern. I'm not happy with the construction of it, and everything I tried to make it better just made it worse. I love the colors, and the navy and yellow stripes fit right in with my fall palette.

Purple dress fabric right side

This is the fabric for the dress I'm getting ready to make. It's a linen look poly blend from Joann Fabrics. I made a muslin this morning and the alterations I made to the pattern are perfect!

Purple dress fabric wrong side

This is the "wrong side" of the fabric, which I think I'm going to use. I just like it better.

That's what I have on the table right now. I have other fabrics and some on the way, and I hope to be able to wrap this challenge up in time!

Fall Palette Challenge - Item List

Knit shirts - 2 sleeveless, 2 l/s or 3/4 sleeve.
Button down shirts - 2 s/s, 2 l/s.
Skirts - 2 pencil skirts, 2 pleated/full skirts
Pants - 2-3 pair of trousers.
Dresses - 1-2 dresses.
Jackets - 1 3/4 sleeve "puff sleeve" jacket, 1 l/s jacket.
Cardigans - 1-2 long sleeve cardigans.

I've already finished one of the pencil skirts and I LOVE IT, and have started on one of the s/s button downs. I can't take any pictures until Lonnie returns from his European jaunt with the camera, and I hope to have a couple more pieces done by then.

I have fabric and patterns ordered and I'm trying to use up fabric that was already in my stash. So far, I've used two pieces of fabric I already had, with plans to use several more. I purchased a 50% silk brown/camel suiting, and two pieces of wool/poly/spandex knit jersey for the sleeveless tops in goldenrod and magenta from Fashion Fabrics Club.

The good news is that I've done an inventory of my wardrobe and these new colors I'm introducing are either in short supply, or will fit in with clothes I already own very well.

I also got my new closet system installed and have plenty of room to hang/fold everything I own and probably still have room left. I only hope the sewing mood lasts...

Fall Palette Challenge

In addition to picking up my sewing again, I recently started reading several sewing blogs. I don't participate in a lot of blogging challenges, but this particular one caught my eye. The Fall Palette Challenge at Coletterie is something I've actually been thinking a lot about lately: making new pieces of clothing that will integrate with and improve my existing wardrobe. I've long known that sewing my own clothes is the best way to get new pieces that actually fit, rather than scouring sales and clearance racks for things that I might not like or might not be in my size. Sewing allows me to carefully select the exact style, color and fabric and be a bit more purposeful about it than just tossing it in my cart and hoping it works.

This challenge is the perfect way to evaluate what I have, figure out what I need, and make some really cool stuff in the process. I already have several pencil skirts planned in various colors, and I hope I can integrate them into this challenge.

First, the inspiration. I looked over my Style Pinboard at Pinterest and found the following colors to be the most prominent:



I already have a LOT of neutrals, but camel is sadly lacking. I have a lot of basic pants and skirts in black and gray, but again camel is left out. I also want to add more colorful options to my basic wardrobe. I want one full set of interchangeable options, including at least one of each skirt, shirt, jacket, pants and a dress. I really have to consider my color and fabric options carefully, including the fabric and patterns I already have and what I need to buy.

The skirt will likely be finished first since it is the easiest to complete. I am not a fast sewer, and sleeves give me hell, so the jacket and shirt will take longer to complete. I'm trying to decide on long sleeved or short sleeved jackets. Short sleeves will be more versatile in this climate, and I can always layer. See? Already thinking about options...

After some consideration, I've narrowed it down to these colors:

Fall_Palette
Color by COLOURlovers

I think these colors would be easy to work into my existing wardrobe, and help balance it out a bit. The aforementioned lack of camel limits my remix options, and I need some navy as well.

If you want to participate, hop on over to Coletterie and join their Fall Palette Challenge.

Labor Day arm party!

I had a long weekend, so I went through my jewelry box and had my own arm party party at home. I didn't party as much as I wanted. I painted the bathroom! I did homework and watched it rain. My wrists and arms are not that thin, so I can only get so many bracelets on them. Here are the results.

Arm party 1 Arm party 2

The first one I wore to work Wednesday, and the second one I put together from my white, clear and silver stuff. There are several necklaces in there, and I could only get so many of those on the arm. Whew!


To participate:

1. Have an arm party. Or three. Take pictures. Post it somewhere on the internet. It can be your blog, your image host, Facebook. I don't care where.

2. Come back here and click on the blue button at the bottom that reads "Add Your Link." Please use the URL of the specific blog post or picture, NOT the link to your blog's home page or your image host's home page. So instead of http://www.yoursite.com you would enter http://www.yoursite.com/name-of-blog-post or the single picture's URL. Adding your link will be available right after midnight on Labor Day.

3. Tell lots of people by clicking on one of the share buttons at the bottom of this post.

I can't wait to see what you gals -or guys- come up with!

Bathroom Makeover Update

We recently started a makeover on our master bathroom, which I posted about last month. Here are a couple of updated pictures of the wall that was ripped out.



Much better, right?

Here's a picture of Lonnie and his uncle milling the cedar on the sawmill.



I know the picture is a bit dark, but Meredith had the camera and she was hanging out in the shade.

Not only was the wood free, it was also cut locally by family. I apologize that the toilet was open during the photo shoot, but those were the only two pictures I got. The plan is to cover the wall behind the toilet and go around the shower stall with cedar, then paint the wall a lovely green.

Can I just add how ready I am not to have to look at that ugly floral wall anymore?

Pencil Skirt Love

I LOVE PENCIL SKIRTS. They are flattering, can be worn any time of year with the appropriate accessories, and you can pull just about any top out of your closet to wear with one. They can also be paired with a skinny belt, a wide belt, and just about any number of shoes or boots of your choice.

The search for the perfect pencil skirt for Fall inevitably leads one to the J. Crew catalog.

Pencil Skirt Love



Even for a classic piece of wardrobe staple in such mouth-wateringly delicious colors, I cannot drop $120. Not even when I find I have extra money in the bank account. It just isn't going to happen. I am, however, perfectly capable of sewing a pencil skirt. I even have the perfect pattern! Because I already have the pattern, all I have to do is find the fabric, lining, thread and zipper.

Fabric can be tricky. Because I sit at a desk most of the day, I can't really use anything that wrinkles or looks like it's been wadded in a corner after five minutes of wear. This pretty much leaves out all linen, rayon and 100% cotton. I really have an affinity for the silk/poly/wool blend tweeds and gabardines, but some can be a bit heavy and thus bulky and really warm when sewn. What I end up getting is usually a lightweight blend of one or more of those fibers.

Pencil Skirt Fabric Choices



Fabric and supplies for one skirt will run anywhere from $8-15 depending on how much yardage I need, and whether or not I have to purchase thread. That's at least ten pencil skirts for the price of one, and I can make sure it actually fits me.

I have one skirt made already, but I have to go back and redo the hem. I don't like the way it looks, and even though no one else is likely to notice, I'm not going to rest until the hem looks the way I want it to.

In other sewing news, I cut out a really pretty blouse from some ivory silk charmeuse I purchased nearly two years ago. I fell in love with the fabric when I found it on Fashion Fabrics Club's web site, and it's been languishing in my "to sew" pile since then. I'm not a nail biter, but I'm almost to that point now. Luckily real silk has some grip to it, so I hope I don't feel like I'm trying to sew two greased pigs together. We shall see.

Pics will follow!

The arm party....party

I still like arm parties. For those of you who don't know what an arm party is, Google is your friend. Short explanation? It's a stack of bracelets on your arm, the taller and more mixed up the better.

I've actually been doing this for a number of years, off and on, but now it has a name. I've heard that The Man Repeller coined the term. You can see examples on her blog here. Whoever is responsible for it, it's a fun name for something I've always done.

So, if you want to participate in the arm party party, stack 'em up, pile 'em up, pack 'em on and take a picture. Post about it on your blog and then come back here (to the home page) on Labor Day to add your link to the mix.

See you Monday!

Missoni for Target

If you haven't already heard, Missoni is doing a line for Target. The pictures and prices can be found here:

Missoni for Target

I'm really digging a couple of the pieces, but especially the accessories. I can integrate the accessories into my wardrobe much easier and much more affordably than the wardrobe pieces.

So, when September 13th rolls around, I might just have to splurge if the budget will allow. What are your plans, if any, for this collection?

How to wear a denim shirt

I bought a denim shirt last year at Walmart in the women's department. It's fairly form fitting, has pearl snaps and a vaguely Western influence to it. I've mostly worn it to work outside during the winter, but I'm trying to come up with ways to dress it up a little for casual Fridays and manage not to have a heatstroke. Even in winter a lot of layering is out of the question for me because I just get too hot.

I really like the way it looks and the cut is flattering, AND it was fairly cheap so I want to get some mileage out of it. I won't be wearing it with jeans, so I guess I'm going to dig out some skirts to pair it with this Fall and Winter.

Here are some ideas I've pinned at Pinterest:





As a general rule, I don't wear long sleeve shirts under cardigans or sweaters, even in the winter. It's much too bulky and does nothing for my figure. Did I mention it's also too hot? I may source a sleeveless denim button down shirt for that purpose only.

What say you? I think dressing up my poor neglected denim shirt with skirts, boots and jewelry is the way to go. Otherwise it's just going to be relegated to work wear or the back of the closet, and I'd hate to do that.

New Account!

I've recently migrated all my Reader subscriptions and Blogger to my Modern Country Mom Google account since I'm trying to get away from my old e-mail address. The only reason I'm doing this is because I want everything on one account and the old e-mail has my married name, which I changed after my divorce.

Everything else should pretty much stay the same.

Bathroom makeover project

I've always hated my master bathroom. It looks the same as it did five years ago when I moved in, and I haven't really had the money to redecorate it like I've wanted to.

Here is the before. It's not pretty.


100_3267

View from the door.

100_3268


The double vanity.

100_3269


Behind the door - a single shower stall.

100_3270


What I do like about this bathroom is that it has plenty of storage. None of it is close to the toilet, though.

100_3274


The ugly. The carpet is permanently discolored from a leak we had behind the wall. We had to cut up the wet carpet because it smelled and we had to figure out exactly what was leaking.

100_3273


The leak was coming out of the pipe going into the shower head. It leaked for a while before we figured out where it was coming from. YUCK! We had to rip the wallboard down to fix it.

The punch list:
  • Rip up carpet
  • Remove trim strips and fake wood "molding"
  • Replace wallboard
  • Prime and paint walls
  • Install new flooring
  • Replace lighting
  • Replace/remove or re-frame mirrors
I'm trying to put together a budget, and I know that the vinyl flooring and light fixtures will be the most expensive items. The most important thing is getting the carpet out, but I don't want to paint after the new flooring is in. I also don't want to walk around on OSB for several months, but it's becoming a pretty tempting option right this moment.

Who puts carpet in the damn bathroom?

Pictures!

At a wedding in May. See how much better my hair looks?!


Country enough? Exposed bra strap and bare feet.

My silly/beautiful daughter.


Thought I should redeem myself today with my work outfit. Also wore red cardigan.

New 'do!

Last Thursday I got about three inches chopped off my hair. I was beginning to look like a Shetland pony and my hair was completely unmanageable. After two months of nothing but ponytails every day, I decided it was time.

I love it!















This is a fuzzy camera phone pic, but you get the idea. This is me in all my made-up and coiffed glory just before heading to work.

This week's reading

I recently started reading the Game of Thrones series by George R. R. Martin. I also started watching the HBO series after I read the first book, because I usually like reading the books before watching a TV or movie adaptation. I'm now on book three, A Storm of Swords

 Rather than purchase paperbacks, I opted to get the Kindle version for my PC. No, I don't have a Kindle...yet. I also downloaded the Kindle app to Lonnie's Droid X so I can read on the go.

  Kindle 3G, Free 3G + Wi-Fi, 3G Works Globally, Graphite, 6" Display with New E Ink Pearl Technology

I still want a Kindle someday. As much as I read, I would love being able to take my books everywhere with me and download magazines and newspapers as well. I enjoy magazines, but to me, they are a resource waste. I have several I'm trying to wean myself away from.

I digress. So far, I have really enjoyed the Game of Thrones series. I'm a long-time sci-fi and fantasy fan, so these books are right up my alley. The characters are so interesting. I find myself turning pages so I can find out what happens to one of the Starks or the Lannisters next.

I highly recommend this series if you like period fiction, sci-fi and fantasy. There are dragons, magic (but not overly done) sword fighting, knights and adventure.

I'm also reading various magazines that I have on subscription, which I'm trying to pare down. This week it's Country Living, and I'm waiting on my Lucky and Garden Gate to arrive for June.

Fun with makeup

Even though I don't wear makeup every day - and don't wear much on the days I do - I still enjoy playing with makeup and trying out new looks. I'm also an Avon Independent Representative! I'm hoping to put together a series of before and after shots of me and possibly makeovers of other people as time goes on.

I'm not a professional makeup artist, but I have been honing my skills by practicing and watching videos from Makeup Geek, Lisa Eldridge and Nicola and Samantha at pixiwoo. I favor a more natural look, so MUG wears more makeup than I'm comfortable wearing on a daily basis. However, her techniques are great and she's gorgeous. Lisa, Nicola and Samantha are equally gorgeous and have lovely accents, so they are fun to listen to as well as watch. They also offer a lot of every day looks, which is what I'm going for. Each of them are fabulous and have something different to offer, so I recommend checking them all out if you have time. I warn you: the videos are addictive!

I'm in the process of building my makeup stash, trying out new things and figuring out what I don't like. I have pretty impressive wish lists at Avon, e.l.f., Sephora, Stila and Ulta. These are all things to be wished and saved for after some necessities and bills are paid, so I do with what I have for now.

Here's what is in my makeup drawer as of today:

I think I got it all! I'm not even going to list my brushes because I don't have "named" or numbered brushes and some I've bought or made from artist paint brushes over the years.

Because this turned out much longer than I expected, I'm going to continue in another post. Stay tuned!
