Said friend and I (and another friend) are hosting a clothing swap in two weeks, so…
43. some more clothes
...and I’m looking to see what books and odds ‘n ends I can bring as well (especially as I’m running low on clothes to purge at this point).
I must have been pulling at my hair trying to get it going.
Or I made a Faustian deal to get it to work and subsequently sprouted horns.
I’d been bending the rules here and there, but I just spent $40 on dresses (9 dresses, for what that’s worth) and feel like my little rebellion is getting out of control.
Anymore misbehavin’ and I’ll start the year over.
Running Tally (I’m about 40% through the year):
+ anthropologie skirt
+ gap dress
+ gap dress
+ gap flats
+ orchid hair clip
+ 9 dresses
I’m mildly disappointed in myself, and mildly excited. I’ll skip discussing the former and get straight to the later – I’m excited to practice doing alterations. I think I can deal with learning on an item that cost $4.44.
In other sewing related news, I decided to bust out my super awesome free serger while Munchkin was napping and found that bar (thread bar?) was broken. I improvised. Maybe that’s one reason I didn’t get it to work (yet).
Another potential reason is that I’m not using the ideal thread for it.
Yet another not-unlikely reason is that I may have simply loaded it wrong.
Patience. It’ll happen.
