Special Announcement, Plus 昔のSewing Returns Next Week!

Hi friends! My parents came to visit me this week, which has meant some absolutely delightful strolls at the local Japanese Gardens plus a lot of very tasty food…but not much sewing! 🙂 Your regular scheduled programming will return next week, but I did want to make a very exciting announcement! I’ve been accepted asContinue reading “Special Announcement, Plus 昔のSewing Returns Next Week!”

昔のSewing Returns Next Week!

Hi friends! I haven’t just been reading books about Edo-period fashion! This month has been very family-focused, which has been delightful but has also meant limited time for working on projects. I’ve literally got two things drying as I write, but I can’t finish the post until I can photograph them! Velveteen takes a longContinue reading “昔のSewing Returns Next Week!”

昔のSewing Returns Next Week!

Hi friends! I was away most of last week and part of this week attending Paradiso, a Japanese fashion convention in Kansas City, Missouri.

All of this has left me with several projectsContinue reading “Short Hiatus This Week!”

Another Short Hiatus This Week!

Sorry for the delay, friends! I actually snuck away for the weekend to historic Port Townsend which was delightfully relaxing but also set me behind schedule since I had to do quite a bit of work to prepare for my time off. I have been busily working on my projects since I got back…and IContinue reading “Another Short Hiatus This Week!”

Next Post Will be Wednesday!

Sorry for the delay, friends! I haven’t just been cloud-watching. 🙂 My Featherweight was overdue for her yearly servicing, and let me know by trapping thread in the upper tension disc and refusing to stitch. Oops! She’s been in the shop since last week, and I only just retrieved her yesterday. I’m making great projectContinue reading “Next Post Will be Wednesday!”
