It’s been a long time, we shouldn’t have left you,
NOPE. I’m not going to apologize for disappearing. Active costumers, especially those of the hobbyist persuasion, know that there’s too little time in the day to whine about all of the “stuff” that fills our non-research-shopping-construction time. We have to prioritize sleeping, eating, families, jobs, reading, gaming, social media–so some items will always be set aside. In that small space remaining in my week, the dreaded Con Crunch is now in effect.
Once upon a time, there was a jumpsuit sitting on my sewing table. It belonged to my little brother, who asked me to cut and apply a heat transfer vinyl design to the garment. The jumpsuit had been in my possession for nearly two months (he disagrees with that timeline). This was not a commission–my brother is a costumer in his own right, and we often do costume pieces for one another. I just happen to have a craft cutting machine, and this job should have only taken an hour. I fear that this quick, non-project may have been an indicator of what is to come in 2020, so I’m taking steps to get better.
