I hope you all had a lovely end of year festivities. Mine were low key, as I'm still attempting to recover from the horrors of what happened to me so close to the start of the new year.
It's been stressful, and I'm thankful for the friends of mine who keep encouraging me and pushing me forward. I'm an optimistic realist, so I want it to work.
In case you were wondering what the title of this blog post is all about, I'll get to that.
I wanted to say that I really plan, with due diligence, to blog more. I'm aiming for at LEAST once a week over Catalog Sundays, of which, I really need to do a long afternoon of scanning.
But these past few months of not blogging does not mean that I have not been sewing.
I recently got a sample sewer position from a company called Anovos which specializes in film accurate costuming. It's pretty cool and this was the first project they had me work on.
Now, I can't really talk about it, but it was a very challenging project. I sewed all the samples on this costume (sans the wrap arms). There is a brown tunic, a gray sash, the pants, and the belt under the leather belt.
I also made this cool Kylo Ren cape. It was a beast, but the Rey costume was MUCH more complicated.
These have taken up a lot of my sewing time, but now that they are in pre-order, I can at least post them!
Ah, that feels good.
Okay, it's back to work for me. I'll have an update on NVL patterns next week, when I'm totally open to get to work on those lovelies.
Thanks again for all the support and encouragement. I really need it. I need more of it. Ugh. Things from 2017 are still nippin' at my heels as I try and outrun them.
