Life can change courses in so many ways and as fast a flash flood. Because of a 2100 mile move, I have to start a piano studio over again, my Etsy shop and sewing projects were put on hold, and I have to start life over again in a whole new place. But at least in some ways, I got to bring my friends with me.
I received a most wonderful letter last week from Jessica of the Boyer Sisters. Sitting working on writing my reply, I started hashing out my thoughts on friendships and how they come and go and change over a lifetime.
The dance went off without a hitch. I know I had so much fun with planning it, making my dress, and then the dance itself. By the end of the night, I felt much more confident with my dancing abilities. :)
One of my dearest friends knows me well enough to have completely nailed my Christmas presents this year. This cute little vintage picture and shotgun shell turkey decorated the outside of my gift.
I know I have been rather derelict about posting anything really sewing related lately. Life has been rather hectic and continues to be so. My sewing has rather suffered as a consequence, which means I have nothing to post about. Fortunately, Miriam to the rescue!
I know my blogging presence has been less that optimal of late, but I think that is the way it might be for awhile. At some point, I will relate why, but now is not the time. But let's not get all gloomy!
I am back with a real post, to let you know what the status of my Civil War Dress is!
Miriam's family and mine have been trying for awhile to get together and have dinner. That finally worked out, and Miriam suggested I could bring my dress along and we might get a chance to get some work done. Miriam got the front of the lining and the bodice sewn together. I can boast a little more progress than I made the last time we worked on this.
So apparently, Miriam and I just party whenever our parents are away. I invited her over for the evening to do some more sewing. It was nice to have some company when my younger siblings went to bed. As you can tell from my instagram post, it was backwards progress for me!
Sarah loves to sew, learn more about sewing, and create items with a vintage flair. Her arch enemy is clipping curves, and she has a tolerable relationship with the seam ripper.
