Lady in Yellow by Charles Courtney Curran, 1893

An announcement:  I do not know how commentors on this blog are registered, but I have had the anonymous feature in place for those of you who had diffuculty posting.  It has brought a lot of advertizing spam to my inbox, and I also have to manually reject it as a comment, which takes a lot of time. Therefore I have changed the settings to "registered users."  There was a choice between registered users and Google users, but not both.  Please let me know if you are not able to comment.

I am hoping my next sewing project will be in yellow. My kitchen and several other rooms really went into disarray while I was sewing, so during my crises cleanup today my mind will be full of fabric and designs and ideas for the next sewing session.  

Your comments keep me interested in subject matter for this blog.

Please say hello in the comments to test if you can still post here.

It seems that I am able to post a comment using my Google account, as I always did in the past. I look forward to seeing your next sewing project, and even the mess of your sewing area, if you'd be willing to share! I get discouraged with sewing easily and part of it is all the mess it creates - I don't know how to manage it - and where to lay out all my supplies when I am working. I don't have a table just for this purpose. Practical tips in this area would always be appreciated!

Lydia said...

I will add a picture of the sewing area

I watched a program on Netflix that I thought your readers would really enjoy. It is a series from 2015 called "The Eccentrics". In episode 8 there is a couple that actually live every day as though it is the Victorian era. It is their lifestyle and a very fun to watch program.
God bless you, Jayanna Corbin

Hello!

Anne Staudt said...

I can comment too. I love all your sewing, homemaking and dresses posts. I used to sew a lot more and then got discouraged when the dresses didn't turn out the way I wanted them to.

Good Morning! Love Kelly T.

Kathy Thurman said...

Good morning! I love your posts! Sewing seems to come so easily to you, it has always been a struggle for me! I remember my dad finishing a school Home Ec sewing project for me back in the 70's because I was having so much trouble understanding the pattern. I am better at it now, but it's still not easy. You make it seem almost effortless 😊

I love your blog.Dawn

Hello Lady Lydia! Have you given any thought about the "Lovely Lady" series you mentioned a while ago? Such a thing is so desperately needed in today's society!

Your blog is always a special joy to visit! Yellow is so fun and springy! And I have no trouble commenting :) Hugs to you today!

Lynn Maust said...

With the beauty of the light blue...and now the soft yellow.....I am beginning to feel that PASTELS are the best choices for FEMININE ATTIRE. What do YOU feel about this????

Lydia said...

I am hoping to get the sketch posted today, amd I have not forgotten about the Lovely Lady series. I have had some special demands on my time, as i am occupied working on a few other things that I am behind on.

Mrs.O said...

Hello! Lady Lydia-- would you be willing to do a post on Christian ladies wearing make up? I have had such a hard time going back and forth on this. If not, I do understand people seem to have strong opinions on this subject!
God bless you
Mrs.O

Lydia said...

Mrs. o . I like the artistry of cosmetics and have recently tinkered with makeup made from kitchen ingredients! I am sure I will lose a lot of votes when I post on this subject, but we all have differences and I think the important thing is we are guardians of the home. Yes I will post on that sometime

Vintage Ellen said...

Not sure how to register to be able to post. I always enjoy your blogs, especially about sewing and taking time out for a cup pf tea. Thank you for all the work you do for the blog.

Hi Lydia,
Looking forward to seeing your yellow dress project. I love yellow as it is such a cheery color and lifts the spirit on gloomy days.
However it tends to wash me out if I wear it.

I really enjoy your posts about sewing and grafting pieces from different patterns.
Maybe you have heard of a magazine by the name of "Altured Couture", where by different garment pieces are mixed and matched to create something new and different.
Sometimes the dresses or jackets have bits of lace or embroidered inserts, which gives a different look to the garment and makes it more feminine.

Checking in too! My family has been sick this week, we were really hit hard. I have been so thankful to be home to take care of us all. Looking at your entries makes me want to get up and make something soon, hopefully we will be doing better in a few days. So pretty!
Love, Julie

Still can't get through

Emmarinda said...

Ha! I got through that time. Hallelujah!

Beth said...

I really enjoy your dresses.. Haven't been able to find the patterns and our fabric stores don't carry the Waverly material.. very sad about this as they are gorgeous. Elizabeth

Beth said...

I really enjoy your dress patterns and fabric

becky said...

I have been reading your blog posts for years and years. I never tire of them especially your homemaking blogs.
Thanks
Becky

Sonja Keller said...

I have only commented once before, but I absolutely love your blog. It is so refreshing to meet a woman who is not only a Christian, but embraces femininity and homemaking as you do. You are an inspiration, as there are so very few women who take this Biblical calling seriously. Thank you for your encouragement and beautiful blog. The Lord bless you...Sonja

Linda Newell said...

I look forward to your posts.
