I’m having internet overload. Too much is happening in the computer and outside it! I’ve had a very busy summer and now we’ve bought a house. A fixer, like that will make my life simple! And I’ve started school AND I’ve reduced the amount of childcare per week. I know, it makes no sense AT ALL.
Around the middle of summer I had to decide to cut back on sewing and crafting. It was a very hard decision but something had to go. I’m hoping that once we move I’ll get back into it, although I am NOT vending this holiday season at Bazaar Bizarre SF. I have aspirations for sewing myself like 4500 dresses from all my vintage patterns. Speaking of which, have you checked out Sew Weekly? It’s newish project by Mena Trott of Typepad fame and she is sewing her whole wardrobe from mostly vintage patterns and thrifted materials.
My sister, Liz Henry‘s keynote speech at BlogHer this year mentions Mena and how watching her try to describe knitting on year at a tech conference eventually made her realize that knitting and crafting are actually totally geeky and worthwhile.
Is there a point when you have ever had to put down your crafting stuff for any length of time?
