It’s been one of those weeks.
Those weeks that actually turn into nearly a month.
I haven’t finished a project since the corset I posted a few weeks ago, but actually finished on February 1st.
Luckily I did finish it then, because that completed my obligatory February project. But it feels weird to say that I haven’t finished anything since.
Anything for me, that is.
The week leading up to Valentine’s Day was tech week for me, so that week and the week before I was busy sewing up three dresses, but I didn’t actually complete any of them from cutting the fabric to sewing the hem.
The following week I needed to play catch up for assignments I put off during the show, which led to being behind on that week’s work. And this past week I finally got caught up. Whew, what a relief. That is, I was relieved until I realized all the work I’ve got for this week. It’s a busy time being a graduating senior.
I did work on some projects during that time, though.
Remember this fabric?
I had been planning on using it to make a ballroom dress, but I decided to repurpose that plan to make a different kind of dress. I’ll post on it soon, but I worked on it during February, I just had to delay it for awhile during my catch up period. I’ve got the zipper mostly in at this point, and I’ll be working on the upper “binding” shortly. Then its just hemming and straps.
I’ve also started work on that sweater I had said I started last fall. In crafting I am not always a woman of my words.
I just cut the leather for that hair slide that I was going to make for my Belle costume.
And I just pulled out the cape I had been working on, also for Belle. I promise that under the crumpledness, it’s a cape.
These will all be posted on soon, as I’ll be working on them all during the month of March. Maybe not finishing, but working.
So when I just got the notification of it being a year since I started this blog, I was pleasantly surprised.
Last year I was abroad, I had just met two of my best friends and we had just decided to go to SDCC after two of us would graduate from college.
I was a different person, not needing (really) to look past the end of the semester.
Now, I feel I’m more centered, giving equally to my creative and studious lives.
I’ve been cooking my own food, becoming more self sufficient.
I got myself a serger, and yeah, it may not be working pleasantly, but its just a hop skip and a jump away.
I’ve learned how to truly make clothes for myself, learned how to fit my body, learned to accept my body.
I know what I like to wear, what I feel comfortable in, what I’d love to make more of.
I’ve accepted my geekdom, and the fact that I’m a superfan for many a show.
And I’ve kept up with projects, which was my main reason for this blog in the first place.
So happy anniversary! Here’s to many more!
