I just wanted to do a quick update — I’m hoping to have a better update or two this week, sometime.
I’ve been staying very busy. I’m trying to keep sewing, although I’ve not been as productive as the petticoat week. I’m trying to make a few accessories before I work on a tape dummy and sew a jacket or two.
I’m also looking forward to finishing my garments (for the first one or two outfits, anyway) so I can start working on my husband’s again! I’m excited about costuming with my friends and letting my husband join in.
He seems excited as well — I caught him looking briefly at a few informative websites about period card games to see what they’re like.
Downton Abbey and Christopher
I had about two days where I wasn’t feeling too great, so I watched Downton Abbey on Netflix. I know, I’m a little slow finally getting around to watching it. I’m not a big fan of being glued to television’s schedule, so I waited to catch it on my own time.
I loved it SO much, I told Christopher about it and we sat down to watch it together over a period of a few days. By the second episode, he exclaimed “We are buying this on DVD!!!” I kept warning him about the last episode, and sure enough as the end credits started rolling, he practically jumped up and had fits. He wanted to see more!
I think he’s hooked! 😉 (what a lucky gal I am to have a husband who loves watching things like that with me)
I decided to create a blogger account so I could more easily reply to friends there. I also felt like I was missing out on the great sewing and costuming community there. I feel a little alone on my self-hosted server (although, I very much appreciate those of you who reply here or talk to me about my entries in person or elsewhere — thank you so much!). Having an account there will help people recognize me, or even get a feel for who I am when they see me replying.
I don’t know if I’ll do anything more than just use it as an informative placeholder for this blog/website. We’ll see how my needs change over time. It seems like a neat setup so far.
I’m looking forward to keeping up a little better with my friends, as well as meeting new people. Here is the link to my blogger account.
Hoping to post later this week
I’m hoping to post two entries later this week — one related to sewing, and the other to something Christopher did this weekend. In the meantime, I hope everyone has a wonderful week!
