It's been quiet around here. I sometimes get down and feel as though I don't have much to contribute; I've even turned down a couple of guest post proposals recently. I decided a while ago that I would try to post my own photographs and my own original content here as much as possible, and I hope it's worth the wait.
Last week I gave myself a bit of an extended holiday that started on Wednesday. I tried to get as much done as possible on my little project with Caitlin, but we're still not quite ready to share that yet. The days have been sunny and bright and energizing, so I feel as though I am finally on a roll. I fought that vintage sailor dress pattern for a second time this weekend, and again I lost (the first time was not last autumn, but the autumn before that). It has good bones but I can't leave it as-is, and apparently I am too impatient to take my time with pattern adjustments.
I tried to stay in to avoid the ATM withdrawals I can't help myself from making every time I go out for a drink, but there were a few ice cream runs and lots of bike rides still. I worked a whole day at Robber, which was nice (I am now official "fill-in girl"), and had a lovely lunch with Sonja (who has graciously lent me the Gocco I used to print the labels above).
I should mention that I donated $50 to the Toronto Cat Rescue with the proceeds, rounded up & with vendor fees subtracted, from the Yard Sale Trunk Show. I had hoped it would have been a bigger donation but considering it was only five hours worth of selling things for $2-5, it's not so bad! Kitties!
Jane Flanagan: Thank you. I hope it works out! I'm looking forward to it.
Kate: You should come! I think everyone should come. It's going to be fun!
kenzie: Aw, it's so funny, I get so sad when other people express the same thing that I express freely all the time. I think you should just do what you always do and it will be great! I'm excited about meeting you!
abby try again: Haha, I'll try to remember that! Maybe I'll make myself a note that says "You can just bring a suitcase full of air." It might end up being the (suit)case! Haha. PARTY!
sn: Oh!! That would be so amazing, Stephanie!
roberta jane: Me too! Can't wait.
shin ae: Aw. Oh the pressure we put on ourselves. I'm sure there will be sneak peeks... and whatever I bring back home with me will probably go up on Etsy! Provided I can get as much done as I hope to.
vanessa joie: Oh wow! That's great news!
ilana kohn: Aw, you should go back!
Victoire: Thank you!
m.bardeaux: That sounds so lovely! I'll probably want to talk cats (just FYI).
yuki: Hello! Thank you so much!
rosalyn: You are such a little ray of sunshine! The best!
