in your backyard...

oonaballoona | a sewing blog | in your backyard

Summersummersummer. It's flying by and stuck in slowmo at the same time. A rollercoaster knocking me for a wonderful loop. But it's knocked me straight out of the loop on hollering at your joints. Y'all stopped by and said such loverly things about my wackadoo bird dress (that I haven't had time to respond to...yet), and nary a peep from me in your neck of the woods. I'm visiting, to be sure, but instead of coming in for coffee, I'm lurking quietly outside your window and eyeing the path to your closets. Bookmarking your goods so that I can return at a later date and properly compliment you, presumably when I am coherent.... then silently creeping around your house some more. I MEAN. I have over 50 pages bookmarked for these "later visits"! I've had things bookmarked for a return trip since APRIL!!

BAD SEWING FRIEND. 


LUCKILY FOR THE HEALTH OF YOUR EYES I DON'T PLAN TO DO THIS SORT OF THING VERY OFTEN!!

No, I plan to get a handle on things (ish) and visit properly. In my best frock. Bearing gifts of libations. I will probably speak in all caps though. It's hard not to speak in all caps when beautiful handmade garments are the subject of conversation. Which I hope you are off to engage in, over at these lovely joints!

  1. It's always so nice to hear from you and see your spicy makes Oona. Don't worry we all fall behind in blog reading and commenting on the beautiful work of others - shoot I'm behind too. Thanks for the nice catch up list you left is here.

  8. You are far too kind. I am a terrible commenter lately. I have regularl pangs about not lingering on a page 1minute longer just to type something nice. I always think you must be manically sashaying around... acting, sewing, cocktailing and so on, so am happy to hear you've kept an eye on my little corner of the web. Any visits are much appreciated!
