I had a hell of a head cold for half of my week. I try never to take my health for granted, and this was a good reminder. Sometimes you’ve just gotta slow down and let your body sneeze.
I added two new tools to my sewing box this week. A silk organza pressing sheet works wonders. No more shiny black fabrics for me. I still haven’t gotten used to manipulating the fabric under the organza. It feels awkward, but I know with time, I will adapt.
I am Marcy and Katherine Tilton’s newest super fan. If they wear wrist pincushions, then so do I. I cannot believe I waited so long to get one of these. No matter where I travel, I’ve got pins! I can keep other pointy sharp things like sewing needles and safety pins close at hand as well.
This means I’ve got a fancy new dress to wear to the Wrangell Mountains Center’s fundraiser. I hope to see you there. This is the last invite, as by this time next week all the fun will be over. The amazing artwork on this flyer was done by Kristin Link. You can see more of her work here.
