back

I'm here! I'm here.

It's been an action-packed few months. The big news, I guess, is that I got laid off in May as part of a department restructuring. (Which is fine! More time to sew, right?) I have finished projects, but that and some other life stuff got in the way of posting.

Before I post projects, though...right after I got laid off, we spent a couple of weeks in Wales and Scotland. (I know, I know, but I really needed a couple of weeks to clear my head, and we'd booked and prepaid everything before I found out. So.)

I didn't buy much, but here's the haul:


Left: Linen with bird print from 
Wheeler Fabrics in Machynlleth, Wales; right: Merchant & Mills Sewing Book


Crepe de chine from Liberty. Just enough to make a shell/camisole, maybe.
Wheeler Fabrics is really fantastic -- still regretting not buying a couple meters of organic sweatshirt fabric. I might use the linen to try and eke out a dress, although it's a little late in the season.

Okay, on to projects. (Also, I'm sad about not being able to make MPB Day this year. I want to go!)
