Weekend


all about going out and about. Last Friday, I interviewed this artist about his exhibit at our home offices. Saturday, I attended another wedding here for a dear friend in Media, Pennsylvannia (side note: I wore my jumper to the occasion and I looked spectacular!). Sunday, I had a spontaneous, albeit successful, shopping spree here. Tuesday, I attended a terrarium building workshop here in Glenn Mills, Pennsylvannia. It’s been exciting but can I say that I’m pooped (not literally, of course)? I have another event to attend this weekend but once that is over, I’m plopping myself not on my couch or in my bed but in the chair right in front of my sewing machine!

I know I said I’m pooped but I’m also super excited about my project. The stabilizing, interfacing, hand quilting, and machine quilting portion of the project is over and constructing the final garment is all that is left. Because the silhouette is so simple, construction is going to be a piece of cake. A week tops I estimating. I may show you snippets of the completed garment but I’m hoping that Valerie, Brandy, and I will have another collaboration over Labor Day weekend featuring this lovely ensemble. To hold you off until then, I have a little unveiling planned for the next couple of weeks. One is my Ohhh Lulu high waisted panty (yep, I still hate that word) that I sewed in the midst of this project. The other is outfit shots of my overalls ensemble that all of you were so interested in. Oona requested an outfit shot and I can’t let a fellow seamstress down!

So, as I always ask, what are you up to?

    The office is so pretty, those chairs with different colors totally caught my eye. I’ll be working and illustrating a lot, hopefully. Have a lovely weekend.
