Three topics, One Post

I got a special notification from WordPress last week:  as of July 7th, I’ve been blogging for 2 years!

2 Years!

Sure, I haven’t been too consistent in posting, but I think it’s pretty cool that I’ve been writing about the things I’ve been making for even this long, especially since I had two (three?) failed, flailing starts at blogging before this one stuck.

It doesn’t seem like that long ago that I was posting photos of things I’d made on Facebook, and starting to realize that I wanted to say more about them than seemed appropriate for that scene.

Mini Wardrobe 2014: THE PLAN

Happy July, everybody!  Man, this Summer feels like it’s going by insanely quickly.

I finally decided on my Mini Wardrobe plan, and all of the fabrics I’ll be using to make it come to life!

Here it is.  Daresay you won’t be surprised:

Which Mini Wardrobe?

So, I think I might have a plan.  Rather, I have two plans that I’m having trouble deciding between.  Once I finally pick *the one* I will snort through my stash like a truffle crazed pig and select my fabrics.

Mini Wardrobe 2014

Hello, there!  Long time no see.  Been kinda busy with this:

We got married!  :)

Whoa. (channeling Keanu Reeves a la Bill and Ted)

Once we get the rest of our professional wedding photos back and I get our honeymoon photos culled, I am definitely going to write a couple of posts on our wedding DIY, the wedding itself, and our awesome vacation to Northern Italy and Paris.  Good times, y’all.  Squee!

But until then, I’ve decided it’s high time that I got my rump into gear and participated in some hardcore sewing action.  And there’s nothing that says hardcore like Pattern Review’s MINI WARDROBE CONTEST.

Makin’ Dolly Proud: Cambie Style

So, I’ve been doing a lot of sewing lately, but I haven’t really felt like blogging much, which is evident. Could be the undiagnosed SAD, or the -9 degree weather we had earlier this month, or the lack of sunlight after work to take photos.

I have completed around three dozen projects since I last posted about something I made, and thinking about starting to blog them where I left off was giving me the same feeling as when I take a ton of shit out to use, which gets strewn all over my sewing room, and then have to face the prospect of putting it all a way.  A mixture of anxiety and oddly placed doom.

Maybe when I have a lull in current sewing projects, I’ll jet back in time to share some of my blog-neglected makes of late 2013 and early 2014, but for now I’m just going to start up again with what I’ve just completed…

Drumroll, please…

Another Cambie!


This time in View A (here’s my first Cambie using view B).  I whipped this beauty up for my bridal shower, which just happened this weekend and was beautifully hosted by my wonderful sister, cousin, future mother in law and future sis.
