I’ve been thinking of sharing more upholstery adventures here or at The Sewing Divas but never found the time to post this past few days. I’m not sure that people are interested in executing piped knife edge corners, though, considering the amount of hits lately and comments left to the posts. Oh well, that’s what I have been doing and that’s what I’ll post: what I’ve been doing. I guess it’s just not that interesting to others. Sorry! I’m not much into showing off recent fabric or pattern acquisitions: I like
Executions! I’ve added a few new links here: A quality pair added to my daily reading.
Did you see Paco Peralta’s blog? My Spanish is too poor to read Paco’s writing but I love his pictures. Maybe I’ll learn enough to read his writing. Sweet man, too. I imagine him to be gorgeous as well. I love a well dressed man!
Thoughtful Inspirations! The Thoughtful Dresser Linda Grant is a fabulous writer. She’s definitely worth reading. I do wonder about the use of that photo on her site…. Maybe she’ll tell us about her use of it.
Work is cutting into my sought-after “pretend-retirement” time. Harrumph!
And further, my hopes of getting to the knitting machines or the sewing machines on a personal quest for fashion updating have been dashed again. I neeeed a new wardrobe. The closet is full of clothing for around the year, now, finally, but updating and refitting is in order.
I am losing weight, at a nice slow rate, and all the pants are now baggy. Ugh, I hate that feeling, the crotch hanging down at mid-thigh, the blouse not filled out, underwear that no longer fits. I think chemo/radiation reset my ability to digest fats and sugars very well. My eating habits have had to change. And I’m feeling lighter and lighter. That’s a good thing, now if only I could find time to sew up new clothes that fit! Trying to buy RTW that fits is not worth the time. So the thought for the day is:
Baggy butt is boring.
I sewed commercially all weekend for both the school and the educational materials business and looked forward to unbridled execution of recently gained inspirations but it was not to be, paperwork and management issues took up Monday and Tuesday, all day.
And now, Wednesday I will be driving 700 miles to another educational conference where HusPartner will do the heavy lifting at the sales booth and I hope to languish on the beach or poolside in Florida, thinking mainly about the next doggy adventure for my constant companion, Gaely GoLightly, Westie Extraodinaire.
I’ll finish up the second baby blanket, a job I have put off for the last few weeks.
And I hope to practice being incredibly L A Z Y. I definitely deserve it, don’t you think? I do, anyway. See you in a week.
Happy Halloween! Be careful out there 🙂
