One Hour Top

Image
This morning I woke up and decided I would make myself a new knit top! Sewing with knits is not my regular thing to do, so I went to Sew a One Hour Top by Fancy Tiger - Creativebug what a treat! The pattern is included and the video tutorial is excellent! The ladies know how to sew anything I think. If you have a serger (I don't know how to use mine) or a sewing machine the class shows you both ways! You do need stretch or ball point needles to sew knits. I was advised to use polyester thread and it does help the thread from breaking! A twin needle is needed to get a nice hem! I need more work on twin needles but it is working.

Photo brought to you by Spencer Platt/Getty Images!My heart is with the families of the victims of the vicious attacks on September 11, 2001. I don't want my family, my friends, or any one to forget how the victims died. They have to know this was an attack on Americian way of life. No one was excluded from this tragedy these men meant to kill as many people as possible. They did not care who was murdered!
Take a few minutes today to pray or send good thoughts to the victim's families! The victim's who survived are still suffering 15 years later! The 75,000 rescue workers who today are ill with conditions associated with the cleanup. I wish I could say something that would give them strength and peace and I pray God will grant them that.Thank you for reading - LisaCreate and be unique - Lisa
