I am having a hard time finding the right kind of clothes to wear.
I find myself wanting to wear color, but regretting the way it makes me feel... So black clothes are what I revert to . Black and grey are my go to colors. Am I in mourning?
I have been asked by a lot of people "so what's next?". Well, I took some time off, with about two weeks of no sewing. I went back to an old passion of mine, historic painted theater backdrop conservation and research. Check out our website at www.curtainswithoutborders.com.
I then got a call from a friend in Houston who is opening an amazing boutique called La Camella and I started making t-shirts again. I am also working on a couple of dresses and fascinators for this store too.
I also picked up two wedding dress commissions, which I am very excited about.
Life goes on... But my evenings are now spent doing more reading rather than sewing. What am I reading? The Sookie Stackhouse Novels by Charlaine Harris, of course! Easy, fun, and thrilling.
I would also like to thank the Vermont Studio Center and the Sustainable Arts Foundation for a month long fellowship residency granted to me for this spring! So see, there now.... I will have some uninterrupted time to cook up something new. Perhaps my Josef Beuys ideas?
I also realized that there were some folks I forgot to thank for their support and friendship with this project... I am sorry I forgot to name you all.. But that doesn't mean I am not grateful for your wonderful help and support.
So I know I promised a calendar In the works... And yes, there will be one, but one for the next year. I need to organize this blog, get some images printed and collect all of my eggs... Then next year in 2012, November at G Gallery In Houston, TX I will display this amazing experience in all of it's glory.
So until then, keep checking back. I will have more to write as the new year approaches, happy holidays, warmth, and good cheer to all.
