all about being in the spirit. Is it just me or did winter, the holidays, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Santa, knee high socks, fern scented candles and all things of the like kick in like that – KAPOW with a kung-fu punch before and after. POW! Sorry, I had to add that for effect. It seems like I woke up and thirty-eight degrees, Chapstick, and Frank Sinatra holiday tunes were the norm. Summer ain’t here no-mo kids.
The season kicked in full swing en la casa de Madalynne (more like an 800 sq. ft. apartment) last Saturday when I attended Terrain’s Holiday Open House (blog recap post to come). Christmas trees were on display, s’mores were roasting over a fire, a live band was playing holiday tunes, and twinkle lights were hung throughout the store. All that was needed was chestnuts roasted over an open fire. Oh, that was there too. As predicted, I returned to my chateau (again, more like an 800 sq. ft. apartment) and made pumpkin soup – which I decorated with cranberries on top – and watched a movie I’m too embarrassed to admit. What will next week bring? Might I don a tacky holiday sweater? Who knows but if I do, a “How I Wore It Post” would follow.
On the sewing front, lots have been happening. My near perfect bra and undie patterns are now perfected, well, as close to perfection as it’s going to get. With each fit sample I pattern and sew, I get better and better. I finally feel like I get the hang on this lingerie stuff and I’m excited to experiment with different silhouettes and construction methods. I also excited to show you some amazing stuff that I just started to put into the works. No, Sally, no hints and no clues allowed!
So, as I always ask, what are you up to this weekend?
