Well, I made it to New York City and back in one piece. I returned with all appendages attached, barely, and I didn’t even lose my marbles during the whirlwind 48 hours. Impressive, eh? So much happened in that short span of time – fabric shopping with Marce (I scored awesome lace and micro mesh at Spandex House), an interview with a famed couturier (next Portrait of a Seamstress? sneak peak below), and quality time with people I call family. As excited as I was to visit the city, I was just as excited to get back so that I could sew my new goodies, especially since I also just bought a new sewing machine. Details on that impulsive, barnyard purchase tomorrow.
