I have not used the blog in a while. But I have decided to return to blogging. I guess the blog is like my sewing momentum. I can get started and sew every day for days, months years and then suddenly I stop. No reason I just stop. So I guess I’m back again.
Okay so the winter coat that I want to make is chocolate brown and the lining is the same color. I have decided the quilt the lining with the batting that I use in making baby blankets. I am going to do the stitching by hand. I will be using gold metallic thread and I want the center of the stitching to be my name. In a graffiti style that I created years ago in a poster that was destroyed when my family home was involved in a fire.
After thinking about it I changed my mind and decided that it say “a mere saffron of the valley” the reason this works for me is because if I ever had a clothing store it would be called “Amere Saffron”.
I have not drawn the perfect lily for this sign so it stays in my head. But having the saying “a mere saffron of the valley” stitched into the lining of my coat is heading in the right direction. Maybe if I every get and embroidery machine I can make beautiful embroidered lining in all my coats and jackets. I am sure some designer line has this already but I can’t remember who it is at this point.
I am back to getting up at 5:00 in the morning and this is when I will do my sewing 5:30 to 6:30. 4 days a week. In the evening before going to bed I will plan out the morning work. 7:00 to 7:30 will be my exercise time. I will be showered and dressed by 8:30 and ready to walk out the door. On the days when I am not working on my sewing projects I will be preparing dinner for 2 days and cleaning.
I am also back to sketching again. I am by no means an artist but this does relax me and hopefully will enable me to sleep before 2:00 am.
My little designer has been busy designing clothes so I will have her in my sewing studio on Sunday afternoons. I will be busy creating these for her and helping her to learn to sew them for herself.
That’s it for now. Remember to express yourself creatively everyday!
