Sewing and more

I’ve been rather absent from the blog for a number of reasons, but one of them is because I ran my finger through a sewing machine making a wedding gift for two of my close friends. Using my right index finger was out of the question for a while there, so updating the blog wasn’t high on my list of priorities.

I’m still healing in that respect, but I also finally got a smart phone which means that I can actually post pictures to instagram! Since a picture is worth a thousand words, its much easier on my healing finger.

I’ve posted a few pictures of my first sewing project since the accident. I made a beach coverup from some vibtage sheets I got at a thrift store a while back. You see, on one of my bad fays last week, I decided that I needed an actual vacation that didnt involve doctors and hospitals and all of that. So I convinced Alana to book a cruise with me that leaves fairly soonly. That meant all of a sudden that I needed beach & pool attire. And since we prpmised each other that we were doing this on a budget, I’m trying to avoid spending too much money on supplies.

Which means time to move past that trauma of the accident and sew again. So I successfully made an article of clothing (which is itself its own miracle) and am therefore closer to being set to go. Now I think I’m just waiting for my barhing suit to come in the mail to see if I will have the retro look or the color-coordinated one. ‘Twill be interesting for certain sure.

Be sure to check out those instagram photos. I know that Molly would live your feedback & patronage.

With love,


A day in the life

What Molly observed today when I ate my chocolate fix before my post-work nap:


Nice try, Dove. Unfortunately I have an early shift tomorrow as well. Maybe it’s talking about sleeping late in the day? Now that sounds like a plan!!
