First of all, thank you all so much for your very kind comments and happy birthday wishes. I appreciate each and every comment and keeping this blog is a true pleasure for me. I have been so busy I can barely find the time, and I miss it! I will be sewing more and blogging more regularly soon.
I did have a very nice birthday - it's the simple things that matter. My daughter called me and a few hours later, my mother called. My dear husband cooked my favorite beef with sour cream gravy (with pickles in it- yum!) And my best-est cubicle neighbor got me this mug! Isn't that the most thoughtful thing? I love my co-workers, I really do!
Meanwhile, I have nearly finished all the sequin sewing. It is pantomime sewing! Seriously, the thread is a very fine, clear monofilament and the sequins are small and clear, so ... sometimes I can't even see what I am doing. I enjoy the challenge.
Also, I tweaked my pants pattern to fit a little better and sewed another version in chino-type fabric. Very simple and preppy; good for spring.
My sister told me something funny. Several months ago she updated some feng shui elements in her house. And here I am now working on a renovation of her rental apartment with her. We are having fun making over the space into a sweet little apartment.
So, when she activated the corner to "bring helping people" into her life, I think it worked. I think that's why I am painting primer these days. But all the hard part is finished and it's looking really cute. (We ripped out the whole kitchen, refinished the floors and put in a new IKEA kitchen. Nice paint colors have been selected, I have sewn some window treatments and that's it!!)
So, let's wrap that up, finish the sequin dress and sew something fun for Robin. Yes.
*Happy Creative Days*
