Kanzashi Updates and New Inventory Work Coming Soon
And after that, I am probably setting chirimen aside for a while. I still have other projects to complete, like the obijime (which is now about 4 ft long!) and my pine needle kanzashi.
And after ALL THAT is complete, I am whipping out my SEWING MACHINE.
You heard it. I have all kinds of plans. Recycled kimono, obi, and some silk fabrics that I have been stashing away for this occasion. I am looking at hair accessories, plain and with flowers, purses, bags, dresses, skirts, blouses, you name it. I've pulled out all my sewing books. I need to do a few alterations to some of my favorite skirts (pockets!!!) and I am going to make a few of my own clothing pieces. But with my kiddos going to school full time I will have uninterrupted time to learn and practice. Not to mention time to go to the gym so I don't feel like crap all the time (a must since I am Type 1 Diabetic). But I never got into sewing because I never had a dress form to work with. Now I have a beautiful dress form! It's even red!
I haven't been able to do much else the past few days. Endometriosis has been kicking my butt. It's also been kicking my emotions around, so I haven't been in the mood for working. Especially after the debacle of my last custom order. I am kinda upset I haven't sold any bookmarks or anything. I just hope I can do something neat and different and beautiful.
