Dear, dear Readers – Thank you so much for your heart felt sentiments concerning the passing of my grandma. I read each and every comment and felt warmed and consoled by your sympathies. Death has been (and hopefully will continue to be) such a rarity in my family, though I know its something we all have to face at one time or another. For now, my deepest gratitude over your kind thoughts. I’ll be thinking of them as I attend my grandmother’s funeral over the next few days.

This week, we’ve got lots of fun to look forward to. I’m finally, for the most part, moved into my new place and am mostly unpacked – just a box or two here and there that need attending to. That means that the shop is back up and running! Yay! Plus more to come on my wrap coat, and I think I’m just about ready to share some more pencil skirt making secrets with you all.

A Fashionable Stitch is also proud to be apart of the Colette Sewing Handbook blog tour! In fact, you’ll be seeing my post tomorrow along with a super duper….giveaway! It’s been ages since I had a giveaway here. Ages. Keep your eyes peeled for that. I hope you had a wonderful weekend and here’s to the holiday season that’s ahead! Let’s get stitchin!

  1. How fun for you to be part of the Colette Sewing Handbook Tour! Hang in there regarding your Gma. I lost mine when I was a Junior in College and it is still hard, but the good memories outweigh the loss of her and those are what keep me going. You are a wonderful young woman and how proud she must be of you for all your successes.
    Thinking about you during this very hard time gal!

  2. I’m so sorry, I’ve just caught up on your previous and this post. Thinking of you. What a time, just as you move house. I agree with Tracey above, keep the good memories alive. I lost my father about nine years ago and still have those “moments”, but the good times keep me going. Plus thinking of what he thinks of what I’m doing and hoping he’s proud of me. I imagine your Gma is so proud of you.
    Keep going. Thinking of you.

  3. I was also a bit late in reading the previous post. I’m so sorry for your loss. Please, give yourself time to grieve in peace. It’s so easy to loose oneself in work and “musts”, thinking “I’ll remember the good times” and “I’ll be strong”, but I’ve learned the hard way that the soul needs for the grief to be acknowledged. There’s no rush, your blog-readers and your faithful customers will still be there.
    I’ll be thinking of you and sending my warmest well-wishes!
