its been a crazy couple of weeks. Please excuse my absence. I keep being thrown some serious curve balls. Like serious curve balls. Not bad either, it just makes my life quite hectic. And nuts. And well, crazy. I still don’t think I’ve recovered from my trip to NYC, which I don’t see why I’m not allowed to say it, but I’ve been selected as a BurdaStyle Ambassador. It’s OK if your jealous, because I am too…. I mean… Anyway, you’ll be seeing me at some upcoming events here and there. First and foremost – The Sewing Summit here in SLC, Utah! Yay! Hey, if you can make it, you should come and we could chat and meet for reals. I’m pretty nice in person and its totally OK if you ask me if I dye my hair (lately, I’ve been asked that like, everyday for weeks – weird). I mean, its a pretty great color for something that I grow myself. Anyway, if you can make it, come on out. Especially if you’re from Utah, because I’ve decided its time to put some Utah-serious-garment-sewing-enthusiasts on the map here. We need to band together like sisters – not only that but I need friends that sew and don’t look at me like I’m nuts when I tell them I made something I’m wearing.
Oh yeah, then I’ve been sick. Really sick. Whatever is going around, don’t get it. Kind of took the high I got from NYC and just blew the wind right out of my sails. So beltmaking and sewing in general has been kind of sparse. Aiy yai yai. Still haven’t finished that top that I was making for my clovers. Which reminds me that I never did a recap on my clovers either. Which also reminds me that I need a shiny red belt with that outfit too. Oh and I was going to chat about outfit making. See where this is going? I don’t either. But tomorrow, I’ve got another beltmaking post and later this week, we’ll discuss thoughts on sewing outfits. I even have them all typed up and everything, so its not like I’m going to bug out again after saying all this either. You just wait.
How was your weekend? Thinking about coming to the Sewing Summit? Any fresh sewing thoughts? Here’s one: Don’t sew when you’re drunk or have just come from having a root canal. The results are not good. Happy Monday Everyone!
