Happy Day After Thanksgiving Day, readers!
Michael and I are currently recovering from the huge holiday meal we shared with my side of the family last night, while simultaneously gearing up for a second family gathering with his side of the family tomorrow.
I'm really not a holiday person but at least I have some fun clothes to wear.
After a long conversation with my sister-in-law, the social media maven, I recognize that it has been unfair of me to deprive you all of the opportunity to follow me on Twitter. So now you can! (See button at top right-hand corner) I'm not sure exactly what I'll do with Twitter other than tweet links to this blog, but I'm open to suggestions.
In other news, now that I've demystified the Japanese coat pattern book (more or less), I'm considering purchasing Ryuichiro Shimazaki's Japanese shirt pattern book. (You can read a short review of the book here.)
Even if the patterns themselves aren't earth-shatteringly original (which I doubt) I find the styling of these books very inspiring. I'll probably pick up a copy at Kinokinoya, the Japanese book store near the Garment District. I don't love the idea of shopping the day after Thanksgiving but I do find myself wanting to buy stuff, if only as a way to soothe holiday-related stress. I'm even thinking -- it's terrible, I know -- of buying a vintage sewing machine on eBay. If I do, you'll be the first to know, so stay tuned.
This has been a good month sewing-wise, so I will leave you with a few parting shots -- many never before seen! -- of my two November projects.

Have a great day, everybody!
PS -- What's your take on Twitter? (And if you use it, what kinds of things do you tweet about?)
