This last year…

Happy New Year!  No, I didn’t fall off the face of the Earth, but I might as well have.  I spent April through June working on costumes for a version of Romeo and Juliet my sister-in-law did in La Grande, which is 5 hours east of me.  Then all kinds of sewing for other people.  On Dec. 1 I sprained my ankle and am still dealing with it, but I have a brace and I didn’t tear anything.  I have a lot of pix of step-by-step sewing of various things but I still have to edit them.  I have a pix of finished things, so I can show some here.  I will try to post more in 2012.  I do appreciate your looking at my blog.  🙂
