The good (and also the Bad, and sometimes THE FUGLY) thing about making declarations on the internet is you're held accountable.
In the early hours of yesterday morn, I cut out vintage Simplicity 2222. Today, I savored adding rayon seam binding to the guts, and coming up with interesting substitutions for interfacing, and working out the collar... seconds ago, I looked at it and went nuts. Couldn't take another heartbeat of it. Couldn't even throw an iron on it before posting a PIP shot. COULD HARDLY WAIT TO FOLD THE MONSTROSITY UP AND GET IT OUT OF MY SIGHT. The Good: I stopped working and turned to something else.
The Bad: I didn't turn to any of the last three PIPs posted. And the Fugly: Eventually, if I keep up with this accountability thing, you are really going to see just how addicted I am. I'm diving into my seventh By Hand London Anna. Whaddayagonnado. Yo, I need Anna the Seventh for OWOP!!! I don't have a problem! I CAN QUIT ANYTIME I WANT! Hey, let's change the subject! Are you playing? Once again, I'm turning to instagram to avoid bombarding you, and will do a wrap up later. Today, for a few brief morning hours, Errand Anna, an unblogged red & purple striped raw silk job, pranced about town. She made a lot of new friends, especially in Whole Foods. WHOAH, I said to the butcher, who was giving me an appreciative and respectable gaze, but was nevertheless picking the oldest sausages he could lay hands on, How 'bout giving me those nice pink guys up top? Ya think?!
He seemed surprised. I MEAN. I KNOW MY MEAT. I'm not sure I've even ever been to the fish counter.
Apparently someone out there thinks I know a little bit about sewing, too (though that belief at times is as questionable as shellfish in summer) because somebody nominated me for a bloggy award at BurdaStyle. Thank you, very much, to anyone out there who did that, it was a very pleasant end of the week surprise! There are a lot of new-to-me blogs on the list, and friends who inspire me daily, as well as a lot of blogs missing that are hugely inspiring... it just goes to show, there's so much out there.
Speaking of, I have some ~unnumbered~ pips to get back to. Ahem. Several hems, actually. Happy weekend y'all!
