What's everyone been up to?
Sorry I've been MIA - it was the film festival here and I spent almost every waking moment in a screening or meeting people. What's the gossip? What did I miss? I'm so behind on the Sewing Bee.
Well you know what i did and now im gonna catch up on sewing bee
Me too - though I think I might be two episodes behind now #crafterproblems
Better catch up ladies! It's the final next week.
already caught up. Love the idea of turning bed sheets into garnments
Loving Alaska.Just been beach combing in Homer picking up metal pieces for a new mermaid.Have been water-coloring as we go.Seriously need to catch up on the blog but have loads of new adventures to share.As I sit there are about 70 sea otters rafting in the bay and a family of bald eagles enjoying a halibut.
Ooh Alaska sounds fun! I'd love to go there sometime. I'm working with a theater company on a production of the Broadway version of The Little Mermaid over the summer, and we've *FINALLY* started on the actual costume construction. My first assignment construction-wise is to hand stitch 1500ish large sequins to the leggings for Ariel's main costume. I have ~130 on so far. Since the pants are very fitted and very stretchy, and the thread is that thin plastic "invisible" thread with *NO* stretch at all, I'm anchoring each sequin individually rather than sewing them on in a string. I don't mind though, I love hand sewing and I'm awesome at it, so I'm glad I get to do such an important job myself. I can get each sequin on in less than 60 seconds already, including time to clip threads and tie off a new knot. I get to make a fat suit for Louie the chef next, I can't wait!
@EssexDebs Alaska sounds absolutely beautiful. Very jealous of all the wildlife you're seeing.
Ohh wow, have you spotted any bears or the Northern Lights yet @EssexDebs ?
We weren't lucky enough to see either while we were there
@catmorley I don't feel so bad for being off for awhile now that I see that you've been busy. I feel like this is the first chance I've had to sit down in awhile. Glad you all are well!!
Yeah don't feel bad @trumocha2 - the summer is always such a busy time, it's hard to craft and cook as much but I have a million new ideas I want to work on when things calm down.
We'd love to know what you think - Leave your reply right away
