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.
