My brain is a smidge foggy today – I’ve started this post a few times already and don’t really know where its headed. I’m very much ready for a holiday at this stage, so I say bring on Easter and then all of next week because I am taking a very much deserved break! I plan on eating lots of chocolate and doing lots of sewing.
Some of you probably think I’ve forgotten about opening up my little shop because I haven’t mentioned it for a while – but don’t you worry, I’ve been slowly working away on it. I have ample supplies of vintage and thrifted fabric, belt buckles, zips, buttons and even cotton. I think you’d probably be able to call most of my skirts vintage because mostly everything I’m using is vintage! I’ve made up an initial skirt pattern which I need to test first and then I’ll being making the skirts during the beak which I’m very excited about – I can’t believe I have less than two months before I open the shop and I haven’t even started sewing, where has the time gone?
I’ve started watching Mad Men too - I’m probably just over half way through season one. We aren’t in love with each other yet, we are just holding hands and taking it slowly, episode by episode. I’m one of those people that expects amazing things if someone rants on about something for long enough (which people have about Mad Men) and then get disappointed if it’s not what I was expecting, I also tend to love things that get really bad ratings because my expectations aren’t high for them. As I continue to watch though I am liking it more and more, we just have to get to know each other first.
