So what am I doing this weekend? You would think sewing, right? Well you would be wrong...well at least I'm not sewing today. There is always hope for tomorrow especially since I have a list of spring/summer dresses I want to make vying with each other in my brain for who gets birthed first.
No instead of sewing, I'm cleaning and reorganizing. Jeeze, I thought I did this several weeks ago, but I'm beginning to think that my apartment is where magazines go to die...yes there are that many here!
I finally made it to Ikea...and bought new bookcases...which of course had to be built and stocked. I bought some of these steel magazine holders in silver (but not enough obviously) and I'm in love with the look so I see another trip to Ikea in my future. I'm going for that whole "crawl up in a comfy chair, read a book or watch a movie but be relaxed look" in my living room and I'm almost there...almost!
I'm also experiencing the letdown that comes after a big SWAP sewing and picture taking experience. Getting those pictures taken occupied an entire week of my life...and took on a whole 'nuther level of madness. Realizing that I could win or lose the contest based upon my pictures and my size has pushed me to a place of craziness, I don't visit often. Because really, does it matter if I win? I know I can sew and sew well. I also know that I can create and sew an amazing wardrobe without needing validation. H*ll my Gelato Collection from last summer shows that...so why did I put myself in the position of asking for acceptance? No need to answer those questions, just sharing with you how crazy I got this week over some d*mn pictures...oh yeah, and my desire to win!
PR Weekend is next weekend. I'm looking forward to meeting some sewists whose work I've seen but never met in real life. Hopefully this will be a blast and I won't drag home too much fabric with me. Well at least that is my fervent hope because we ARE going to JoMars! *LOL* And last I checked, I was still a card-carrying member of the Fabricaholics Club.
I still have to go and clean my bedroom which is a mess because I just pulled thing after thing out to prepare for the photo shoot and didn't replace anything. It all needs to go back into its proper places before I can even think about sewing...*sigh*
For all of you who are Mothers or soon-to-be Mothers, Happy Mother's Day! I hope that you are surrounded by your children and loved ones tomorrow and that you realize how loved & admired you are...
...as always, more later!
