Ok, possibly because both are bugging me a bit and both seem to have a negative influence on my sewing mojo (who wants to sew breezy tops and floaty dresses while wearing thick knitted socks and a pullover, I ask you? Also, my current internship placement is not quite living up to my expectations. The people are nice, mostly, but there don't seem to be a lot or learning opportunities. More like a lot of routine work. Hmpf. And we're looking for a new - bigger! - apartment! Exciting, but also a lot of work.). I have not sewn a stitch since finishing my mom's Rooibos.
And is May really going down as this year's one month of summer?
Anyway, enough with complaining. A lot of incredibly awesome things also happened: For my birthday, my boyfriend took me on a helicopter flight to an incredibly romantic dinner! My family got me a beautiful rose-fabric-covered dress form (which hasn't found its way over here yet, but I hope it'll arrive soon) - and apart from the waist being a bit smaller, it even has my exact measurements! And the rest of my friends are sending me on a gourmet raw food candle light dinner with my boyfriend tonight! It's bound to be pretty interesting, isn't it?
|Heh. My polka-dot Crepe and the helicopter match. :D|
Also, a couple of days ago I had an envelope in my mailbox coming from NY. Who could send me something from New York, I wondered? It was Oona, who was sending her Paying it Forward package! Three cute fabric bangles, and some very cool labels, a CD with her favorite jump around songs and some polka dot fabric - can you imagine the huge smile on my face? Thank you, Oona! :D
red lace shrug on my to-knit list. And after that? There's a myrad of possibilities... I bought some Drops yarn during spring sale. A big lace shawl in aqua, maybe? A green merino Miette? We'll see...
So, are you knitting or sewing at the moment? Is summer a busy or a lazy time for you?
