A day late and probably a dollar short, my post for this week is up. Anyway, last Saturday I finished a cushion for our hearth. Cowhide rug makes the top of the cushion and genuine suede the bottom.
I thought I would share some designs that I hope to use with those fabrics I got recently. I hope to be able to get working on a project soon. I also have a few home decor projects to work on too. Cowhide, suede, and leather lacing are on the supplies list.
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.
The post date was really May 1, not April 17. I haven't had a post up for two weeks.
I suppose I must offer some excuse for being away from the blog for longer than I had hoped. But I suppose this must make a reasonable excuse right? I've been sight seeing and learning about various historical sites.
I started this dress back at the beginning of January as a test for my silk ballgown. I have finally finished it long after the silk dress. I find it funny how the starting order of projects and their completion can get completely switched around sometimes. But life is often like that. We have to switch and change our focus to other things that become more important
I know I have been a little neglecting of my blog of late. Unfortunately that is all my fault, but I can't promise that it will get any better. Actually, I think it will get worse. Life is going to be very hectic and crazy for me for the next few months so that I won't get very much done to feature on the blog. But I do have some sewing things going on right now that I can outline for you.
Okay, so maybe it appears that I am super productive every week with sewing projects. I am here to correct that notion. I think I will share a few entries from my sewing journal to show how much I actually get done and how often I get it done. (Unless of course I have a deadline, then beware! I sew like crazy and ignore my family.)
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.
Oh, dear, all is quiet on the blogging front lately. My apologies. I hope to be back up and predictable now. This coming right after I was hoping to go to three posts a week. :)
This skirt has a unique place in my sewing repertoire as the first real sewing pattern I have created myself. At some point in the future, the pattern will be available for sale in my Etsy shop, but there is still a lot of work yet to be done to accomplish that goal.
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.
