I haven't sewn much lately. I've been unpacking and getting the last of the bins leftover from moving put away. Sort of like a squirrel storing away nuts for the winter, I'm making my place cozy for the long dark nights ahead. I do still have two pieces to photograph and share on the blog and they are coming...
For awhile I thought I would do a recap of September but y'all have already seen the makes so I'm moving on to share a few other things. First, thanks for all of your comments and the thoughtful conversation on my last post. I so appreciate it when you talk back to me.
Second, I want to acknowledge a sewing friend whose blog is closing. Barbara Emodi, author of two sewing books, newly anointed cozy mystery writer and owner of the blog, "Sewing on the Edge" will stop writing her blog. She's listed her reasons and so many of them I understand. She is moving on to another creative challenge and I'm wishing her much luck in her future endeavors!
I'm featured on this week's episode of Black Women Stitch's podcast, "Stitch Please" where I discuss moving my Sewing Room. I talk about the reasons why I changed living spaces, how I set up my original Loft Sewing Room and why I ended up sewing in my dining room. All info I've posted on the blog but the conversation with Lisa is so good that I hope you will give it a listen! BTW, if you don't listen to her podcast, you should...especially the Sewing Room series. She has highlighted several sewists who have interesting sewing spots and how they came to be. Who doesn't want to know more about our fellow sewists sewing spaces, really?!
Since I'm down to the last two pieces I want to sew from my cut pile, I will be using the Columbus Day holiday weekend (Yes, I know it should be called something else, because how do you "discover" a country that's already inhabited?) to make a fall cut pile. I have a couple of transitional Vogue 9299's I want to add to the pile. I've got this idea roaming around my creative brain about a pantsuit using the Friday Company Ilford Jacket. And is this the winter I finally break down and make some pjs for myself? Well maybe? LOL!
Otherwise, things are plodding along here. Hope all is well with you too!
...as always more later!
