So, here is the deal: my day-job is to alter wedding dresses, which can be intensive, time-consuming, and stressful, especially now that we’re in the height of the wedding-season (but of course, also very rewarding when we’ve done our job well and the brides are beaming in their dresses!).
Funnily enough, I haven’t been running straight for my sewing machine when I get home in the evening, and thus, I have had nothing newly made to show you guys on this here blog, and thus, I’ve had nothing to say.
So I’m popping in to say that this Sunday it is raining; I’m wearing my blush silk top along with two of the three gray things I bought on sale last week (I know, how boring! I’ll declare them all wardrobe staples, and put more pressure on myself to make colorful and printed stuff); and why yes – I do buy stuff new every once in a while. Sometimes I even buy cheap stuff I should probably have left at the store. Like the cardigan, which is already pilling a bit, had a hole mended this morning, and a button re-sewn. Hmm. But the jeans are nice, even if they are the skinny skinny kind I swore I’d never wear.
I will get back into sewing, but I fear it would feel like a chore at the moment, and that’s not cool. I am, however, making some headway on knitting an alpaca sweater and some nice wool mittens! What, seasonally inappropriate? Pfft.
