I have been procrastinating or maybe I have been multitasking? Either way, I was watching dvds this morning instead of gardening or sewing. Since I can’t sit still I made a necklace and matching earrings to go with my dress. So far I have made a dress,a purse, earrings and a necklace to go with my hat. Honestly, I had to make the purse. I lent my only evening bag out to a girlfriend, besides that bag is black. So you can see why I needed to sew a new bag, can’t you? Besides I had the fabric already, so I didn’t violate my no more fabric vow.
Chicafeliz is convinced that I will be taking up making my own shoes any day now. We passed a shop that sells supplies to cobblers and she keeps teasing me. Frankly, I am not even tempted. No, not even a little bit. Really, not the least bit intrigued….
My only sewing commitment for the fashion show that I have left is to make a plain curtain for the model’s changing room. I have the fabric, it only requires a few seams, a header and hem. Unfortunately, it also needs ironing, a crumpled curtain does not look elegant. Sigh, ironing is not my strong suite, melting things with the iron is what I do best.
I have also been touring the blogosphere and found some blogs to add to my blogroll. One of them is a travel blog called Mexico Vacation Travel Trips Tips. It isn’t a bad overview, I can see checking it out when we are ready to do some more travel. The links page has more links than I have ever seen on a blog, which could prove interesting.
I also started reading Moving to Mexico: Carielle’s Journey, she just started blogging but is exploring the possibilities of moving south. Another blog that I really like is Moving Kids to Mexico, I don’t know how I forgot to include it on my blogroll before. I love American Mommy’s style, her love for her children shines through but not in a cloying helicopter parent way. I enjoy the glimpses into a more upscale lifestyle than I live. She is someone that I would enjoy meeting. Maybe at the next Blogger meet up?
Well, I am off to iron some fabric and complete the curtain. Then I can start back up on the winter wear to send off to Xico.
