What’s Been Up Lately

I’m a terrible blogger! I don’t even know when I last updated. And my posts have certainly not have been of good quality. I do have things to post about soon, though.

They’ll have to wait for a while, since in a week I’m leaving for Maine! I’m quite excited. 🙂 I haven’t been back since I moved away 5 years ago.

Before I leave, though, there are several things I need to sew. I need to finish the orange and green 1910’s dress (After the blue and white one was such a failure, I started again on the same pattern, and this attempt is MUCH better!), make a 1910ish skirt, finish up a 1910 hat and start a head piece to wear with the orange dress for a dinner. Oh, and I need to make some sort of swimsuit, not necessarily historical. I very rarely go swimming, and when I tried on my only bathing suit yesterday, it was quite uncomfortable. I don’t think I’ll find anything in the stores, either, so that leaves making up one.

All of this in less than a week! I am not busy at all for the next few days, though, so I think my big plans can be fulfilled, if I work hard enough at it. As it is… I probably shouldn’t be taking the time to write up this post!!!

The good news is that I will actually have pictures of the things I make when I get back! I never seem to get around to taking photos. (Some of my friends and extended family have been asking for photos of things I’ve made/sewn… for years… and they still haven’t gotten them. I really need to get better at that. :|)

So that’s how things are for right now!
