Hello, everyone! I have been really bad about editing photos and writing stuff on this blog. I’m really trying to get over myself so I can be more productive and better manage my time.
I’m still dealing with the extended tendon in my foot.
I’m currently working on a couple of garments this week I hope to have done in time to enter in our county fair (it does seem really early in the year to have a county fair, but our county is, if not 100% urban, at least mostly so) and taking apart a suit jacket my friend and I got at the Goodwill for $9.99. I just took apart part of the left sleeve and looked at and measured it (both lining and shell) and took 2 pages of notes on just that left sleeve. I’ve been taking photos as I go along of that and the shirt I’m sewing.
I have to start thinking of stuff for a Steampunk fashion show at a convention in August.
And my husband and I just celebrated our 10th anniversary.
I went to the Texprocess convention in April in Atlanta (2 years ago it was SPESA, same thing) and came home with 5 reusable tote bags and some other goodies and ate some wonderful food. I’m working on getting some machines and tools for sewing and pattern making that I’ve needed for a long time. You can see these two entries from fashion-incubator.com: http://www.fashion-incubator.com/archive/tools_and_supplies/ and http://www.fashion-incubator.com/archive/9-tools-needed-in-your-sewing-factory/ for stuff you should have if you’re making patterns and sewing.
More later, as soon as I can. I plan to keep you updated and informed on sewing as much as I can.
