Back for just a moment...

Occasionally, just for fun, I revisit my blog just to get to the list of other sewing blogs that I love to read.  And yes, I have been sewing this past year, but somehow it was "meh" to blog about it.  My son was remarried last November, and the run up in sewing hysteria reached such a summit that I lost all interest for awhile.  The wedding turned out perfect, of course, and I was happy with most of the outfits I made for it.  I was determined to make every single outfit I wore for each of the five events that the wedding comprised...yes, it was a first time bride :).

My other obsession has been renovating my house, a long term interest which actually was a source of income for me during my single parent days.  I have to assume that creative is creative, and most sewers like to either decorate or otherwise attend to their homes.  I probably go a little (make that a lot) further than most, however, as it is my distinct pleasure to tear out walls.  My most recent wall tear-down was in the kitchen.  Here's the before:



And here's the "after".  More to come, of course. It will be under construction until it goes on the market.  Some things never change.
