- Lots of sewing but none to show.
- Working on my Burdastyle webinar for this Thursday
- Just making the pieces I need for pictures.
- Will get back to the rest of the garments later.
- Two jackets and a suitish thing.
- Shape appears to be going out of style.
- Same thing happening here.
- I have a student who paints little landscapes on fake nails then glues them on.
- Pretty impressive.
- Next thing is the assignments.
- My favourite foods may be crabapple jelly and rhubarb pie.
- This realization is part of why I am going to start phasing out black from my wardrobe.
- Maybe if I don't look so serious they won't expect it.
- Maybe they will know who they are really dealing with.
- About time.
- I can feel the serious reservoir getting pretty low.
- May not refill it.
- Why do children start to whine only when their mother comes to pick them up?
- Why do dogs get up to pee 5 times in the night only when my husband is away?
- Why do facing pieces always go missing?
- Why do they come back only when you make new ones?
- Who is around to answer these questions?
- The hard part of getting this webinar ready is knowing what to leave out.
- I am going to be haunted by the "I should have saids"
- Fall people start "activities."
- I think someone should start a book club where the rules are only funny books.
- The last one I tried exposed me to the fact that only books of suffering get prizes.
- Three months of all members saying they really didn't like the book.
- Too bad, the food was pretty good.
- How about a funny book club where you can come in your slippers and at break you eat rhubarb pie.
- And you can ask people how they get their eyeliner on so straight and they show you.
- After the pie.
- Do you think in the webinar I should say cut twice the number of facings?
- Will someone other than me let the dog out?
- Back to the sewing room.
- Call me when it's dinner.
- 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
