Happy Leap Day!!

I hope everyone has a great February 29th.

To all the ladies out there, if you have a fella  you want to tie the knot with, today is the day you ask him. So if he's dragging ass, you know what to do!

As for me, no man, other than my apartment boyfriend, Fred. Our relationship is still new and I don't think person/apartment marriage is recognized in the state of California.

Moving on...
I have to apologize for the lack of posts these couple of weeks. I've been finishing the unpacking and just organizing and putting things away. That and the Air Raid (I'm waiting on a couple of pics and video) and dance class two nights a week. Busy, busy, busy!

My sewing area as of this morning.

The sewing space takes shape.

Good morning and wonderful Wednesday, everyone!


As you can see, my sewing area is coming along. I plan to get back to making clothes this weekend. I have a skirt pattern I want to knock out. All my skirts (and blouses ) are getting too big, and I need some quick fillers. Seeing as I have nothing planned for this weekend (yet), I think that's the best time to get started!

This Sunday I have images from one of my 1930s Butterick
(or McCall, no cover) embroidery books.

My new chair is cool!

Happy Thursday everyone.
It's been a rather interesting week for me. I left work early on Monday and was out sick Tuesday and Wednesday. Actually I went to a clinic to get my throat congestion checked out because as I said earlier last year, it's not allergies. They are doing a thyroid test and they want me to see an ear/nose/throat specialist. My throat is a bit swollen, and its not just the cold exasperating it.

So as soon as I save up $400 (that includes an exam, probe, and biopsy if anything is found), I'll go to the clinic recommended ENT.

Right now I'm on antibiotics for the cold, which I have to say are making me feel better. I had a pretty good sleep last night, so yay! I'm working from home today and if I feel good, I'm back at work tomorrow. I actually miss work. I like where I'm employed :)

As for what I did when I was sick, not much. I really do believe sleep is the best medicine. Rest, rest, rest. All those movies and grandmas had it right.

I pretty much slept the last few days away, but that weekend, I did get some stuff around the new pad done. 

My plant, Fancy finally emerged from a tangle on the floor to a lovely cover over the window.

Help me choose a pair of slippers!

Happy Monday everyone! 

I had a lovely weekend. I had a private lesson with my dance teacher, and worked on some of my shortcomings. Then, later that night, I went dancing and caught up with some friends I had not seen in weeks. Sunday I finally got to the bedroom and unpacked it pretty much all the way. I also emptied my last packing box, huzzah!

The living room!

Catalog Sunday

Because the Air Raid is this approaching weekend, I thought a nice selection of fashionable dresses from McCall Style News, July, 1940 seemed in order.

Enjoy.

January Pattern Showcase!

Happy February everyone! As I finally unpack my sewing goodies (which seem to be a good 1/5 of all my belongings), I found my stash of last month's goodies.

Because of my sudo-fast, I didn't buy a lot of patterns. I did skip eBay and got some from a few vendors online, as well as Etsy.

Still unpacking...

Oh man. I had it all planned. This weekend was going to be the end of my unpacking. I was gonna knock some out on Friday night, then Saturday and Sunday it was going to be a home run (or should I say touch down considering the weekend it was) in getting all the rest of the bit put away. Well...

Put up the spice shelves in the kitchen.

This Sunday as I wade through this...

This is my Sewing Area. I just have to neaten it up a bit :)
...I finally set up my scanner and am bringing to you lovely scans from Singer in a sampling of all the major pattern companies from winter 1939.
