With one exception. If a garment`s success is defined by how much it is worn, I have two major successes (not counting the panties I made, they are far too boring to write about, again). The two robes I made from Burda 2653. One I made for me and the other one for a friend. Each of these robes have been worn EVERY DAY since they were produced. Every single day. Both of them are washed in the morning so as to be ready to be worn at the end of the day. An unqualified success, so much so that I am going to make another for me soon.
Everyone seems to be doing end of the year posts and I haven't. Why you ask (you are nosy, aren't you?), well, I got a new toy for Christmas and I have been a little obsessed with it. It is a craft cutter, a Silhouette Cameo. I am so obsessed that Amy B., who follows me on Pinterest noticed the avalanche of Silhouette pins applied to my new Silhouette Cameo board. The things you can do with that thing are endless. Pretty soon any flat surface in my home and car will be covered with vinyl decorations, distant family who I haven't seen for years will start getting birthday, anniversary and Groundhog Day cards from me, I will be having dinner parties in order to have a reason cut out place cards, a chalkboard menu board will be made for the dinner parties, the birthday cakes I make will now be cupcakes so I can produce cupcake wrappers for them, glass canisters will be etched with the contents, if a garment needs an applique (and you know that will happen) it will be a ridiculously intricate one that couldn't possibly be cut by human hands, my niece will have nail stencils for applying her nail polish, everything will have a custom label, the dogs are worried about this last one, fortunately for them, the vinyl doesn't stick to fur (not for long anyway). The list goes on and on and on and on and on.
That is what I have been doing.
Anne, I promise to still play with you in Jungle January. I promise. Really.
