So in my last post I was all like ‘sewing mah work wardrobe!’ right? Well, this week, I found out I won’t have a job after January-ish. So… definitely bummed. My contract runs out and it won’t be renewed. It’s not fun being Tiff right now…
It also hasn’t been a great sewing month for me. I had planned to sew a Reglisse and a Zinnia with some Spoonflower fabric I made for Sewcialist’s Green December challenge. Except:
I’ve made two (TWO!!) Reglisse bodices, and I cannot get the bow to sit flat without flipping the facing out for all to see. And my Spoonflower fabric won’t be arriving until next month. It’s been a rough week, and scarily I lost my sewing mojo a little…
So let’s talk about some of my non-sewing interests for now.
I dusted off all my toy cams and organised my old photos and had serious nostalgia pangs from doing so. I want to get back to toy photography but film is so dang expensive to develop nowadays, not to mention it’s hard to find someone to do it.
I also broke my nail polish buying ban (it lasted about 4 months I think) for two Essie polishes because nail polish makes all of life’s problems better. And Bourjois’ Happy Light primer is the bomb.
Ok, back to sewing stuff:
a) Indie Stiches is amazing guys, go buy from them. I bought two patterns a day before they were going to announce a sale, and they automatically refunded me the difference because they didn’t want me to miss out. Awesome customer service, I reward you! I’ve already bought two more patterns with the code INDIESANTA for 20% off everything. Also, can I just say, free shipping within Australia?
b) I’m drafting and digitizing sewing patterns guys! I get so many searches for ‘boatneck t drafting’ or something similar that I thought I’d try my hand at making a pdf pattern of my boatneck tee. The thing is I’m pretty much entirely self taught from books, so there are times when I have no idea what I am doing, so I’m not sure where I’m going with this myself.
Soooo… all in all a really rough week for me, but I’m hanging in there like a cat on a branch. I hope I still have a fantastic 2014 despite everything :(.
OH I nearly forgot:
I am currently sewing an Archer for Archer Appreciation Month, so I guess some sewing mojo is back?
