The PARF was excellent during its encore weekend; although, I’m bummed that I decided not to go on Sunday. Oh, well, I’ll plan for next year.
I spent yesterday cleaning and reorganizing the costume sections of the closet. All clothes are in garment bags and are labeled. All fabric is in plastic totes, save 16 yards of next season’s Tudor, for which I have no storage container yet. I went through all of my plastic drawers and put every notion, piece of boning, and fastener in its place–I even organized my patterns by time period and probable usage. My only storage want right now is a hat box; I fear for the life of my straw hat.
I imagine that blog updates will trickle in once a month, while I revisit my previous interests. My holiday wish list includes a rotary cutting machine and a bias tape maker. I do have a project for a friend lined up which I plan on starting after the holidays. I’ll also be trying my hand at belly dance costume–nothing major, just hip scarves and perfecting rolled hems for veils.
It has been a great faire season, in my opinion. Our wardrobes have doubled, and we were able to share our day long mini-vacations with many friends and family members.
Here’s to a well deserved sewing sabbatical. Thanks for reading!
