I've done it.
I have all my little students organized and on track for the term. I have myself on track for the term.
I have given away some obligation fabric to friends at the sewing guild and am excited about new fabric I am going to need for my new wardrobe direction - more on that later.
If I don't get myself to Mood Fabrics in NYC soon it is going to kill me. There is nothing around here and I sew nearly every day.
I have my trip booked for November.
I have had my little girls overnight as a practice for when their folks are going to NYC next month - it was great.
I have been making dresses for Miss Scarlett including one the day before her birthday because the day before she told someone "Tomorrow it is my birthday and Babs is making me a beautiful pink dress." That was news to me but I did it.
Off tonight for dinner with a fashionista/traveling friend who used to work for me only really I worked for her.
Enjoy your day.
- I am a mother, a new grandmother, and a teacher. But whatever happens in my life, I keep sewing. I have worked as a political communicator and now as a teacher in my formal life. I have also written extensively on sewing. I have been a frequent contributor and contributing editor of Threads magazine and I write a monthly humour/sewing column for the Australian magazine Dressmaking with Stitches. My first book Sew.. the garment-making book of knowledge will be published in May 2018 and is available for pre-order from Amazonhttps://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=barbara+emodi&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Abarbara+emodi
