Well I’m married! The last few weeks have been crazy busy and in the middle of it all, we pulled off a wedding. We pulled off a memorial service. And we are now enjoying wedded bliss. So, I looked at the last post and it was July 13 — almost two months ago. I keptContinue reading “This could be a long one…”
I’ve been meaning to write for a while, but have had so many other things come up. Today, for instance, I have a long list of items to do, but will put some on hold until tomorrow, or the next, or the day after that. Suffice it to say (ooh, I hate that), I willContinue reading “We are in the teens…”
After spending a few days finishing up miscellaneous projects involving my sewing machine, I figured I was about to pull the plug on it and put it in the closet until sometime after the wedding and when I’d be so inclined. Then, a new project called. We are having a minimalist wedding. Just kidding! ItContinue reading “42 Days & Counting…”
There have been a few things going on in the past couple weeks. I worked umpteen hours hand-sewing, and also thinking I would never actually use my little sewing machine again. I also looked for appropriate undergarments to wear underneath my dress. Last weekend, as a final exclamation point, I decided to take in theContinue reading “The final step, I mean steps…”
I am an optimist. I always think I’m moving forward — even today after working for who-knows-how-many-hours on hand-sewing lace pieces onto the outer-dress. I started thinking about how long it took me at first. The first lace piece took probably an hour to sew on. We’re talking about a pretty small piece, but thenContinue reading “Progress…”
I’ll start with this: We are 10 weeks away from “the big day” and my dress is coming along nicely. I anticipated it would be finished today, but alas, it is not. Hand-sewing takes time and I’ve spent a majority of the weekend hand-sewing lace pieces onto the outer dress. The front is mostly finished.Continue reading “Thought I’d be done…”
I sewed what I thought was my last stitch on the slip of my dress. It fits and I hemmed it and I did a little dance! Then I thought to myself, “Hey self! Maybe you should tack the facings to the dress so they don’t pop out.” So, I did that and then wasn’tContinue reading “I’m finished… or am I?”
I know I’m excited here, but just last week I wrote a Facebook post about how I’d lost 20 pounds. I’d been working on my dress and had my next-door neighbor help me with the fitting process. Anne sews or has sewn. She knows things. She asked me if I had a sewing gauge. IContinue reading “It fits! It fits! It fits!”
I’m not home and will not be working on my dress. I have a few other things on my mind, like what do I need to do the next few days to help my mom? We are visiting her for a few days and it’s a working “vacation.” So far so good. We finished aContinue reading “A break in the action…”
The past couple weeks have been very busy and sometimes frustrating. I am a teacher and teach English and Culinary Skills. For Culinary Skills I make videos and show them in class. About the middle of March, we purchased some editing software so we could make great videos. It has been a disaster. I amContinue reading “Begin again…”
