First, I thought that I'd share this video about the resurgence of sewing. I would embed the video but I am not sure how since it's not on Youtube. Some of the points in the video are thought provoking, as the video suggests that people are coming back to the art of sewing as a way to save money. I know that the topic of the frugality of sewing has been visited on many other blogs, and it as always fun to hear everyone's opinions on it.
Secondly, I bent my fingernail completely backwards while attempting to open a can of marinated artichoke hearts. I screamed. It hurt. Sewing related? No. Of interest to you all? Probably not.
Thirdly. I got a sleeve board!! Best of all, it only cost me $1.50! It will be making an appearance on the blog, as soon as it recovers from the few cosmetic surgeries it's having. When it reemerges, it will have a brand new
Fourthly, I managed to pick up two shorts patterns at Joanns, along with some gray poplin to make a pair. I have an apron lined up to go before I get to this project, so it may be two or three weeks before I finish them. They are going to be my version of the gray Anthro shorts that I posted under my inspiration post.
Lastly, my next project is going to be a vintage Vogue reprint full apron, made with vintage fabric that has a print of soup tureens, pepper grinders, and fruit bowls. I may or may not don red lipstick and pearls for the photo shoot upon its completion.
Now, if you will excuse me, I have a book report to write, just as soon as I finish reading the book.
I'd love to hear what everyone is working on right now!
