Flypaper thoughts New York edition


  • Five days here and having a blast
  • Zippers cut to fit and hardware at Botani
  • Nice dinner with Carolyn from Diary of a Sewing Fanatic
  • Time in the FIT library reading about fit, which I have decided I am really interested in
  • Seeing more about drafting is instructive
  • But's what with the "ideal figure"?
  • You tell me one high hip from carrying babies around isn't ideal
  • Or legs gone veiny from those 12 hour shifts
  • Or bent necks from seeing what the kids have written at their desks
  • Or earning a living over a keyboard
  • Or pounds that came with the genes
  • The same ones that gave you your smarts
  • And your common sense
  • Ideal figure, go figure
  • But I did find out that I need to get a flexible ruler
  • Been meaning to do that
  • Spent time with the kids looking at new places with them
  • Hope you don't mind this he said
  • This isn't the sights
  • Are you nuts?
  • Don't they realize once they are off in the world
  • All you really want is chances to be part of their real lives
  • You can buy a farm in some places, a good one
  • For a NY apartment
  • However I am noticing there are a few things around here 
  • You don't have on the farm
  • Just a few
  • Turns out another mother from home is here visiting
  • I know her from a sewing class and she has never done the garment district
  • That will change tomorrow
