Lots to tell today, readers!
Yesterday, Willy had to have some dental work at the Humane Society, where we take him for veterinary care, and they ended up extracting ten (!) teeth. This despite the fact that we do brush his teeth on a regular basis; I think it's a chihuahua thing. Incredibly, he's completely fine today: healthy appetite, normal energy. I don't get it.
After I dropped him off for his dentistry, I biked down to Chinatown, where I had some vintage eyeglass frames made into non-prescription sunglasses. It was cheap and took just an hour and a half. While I waited I poked around the nabe. Lots of exotic (to me) treats. I even stumbled upon a store that inserts rivets and snaps.
|Exotic dishes galore!|
After I picked up my glasses (above), I did a little fabric shopping. Check out this silver coated wool boucle at Mood!
I bought three yards of this cool crinkled black nylon quilted over poly batting. I think it would make an amazing coat or jacket.
Also this lightweight striped linen.
Last night I scooped up two super-cheap vintage men's patterns on eBay. I know nothing about Sew Easy patterns but these look like fun. Ever heard of them?
Today I registered to take an intensive draping course at the Fashion Institute of Technology. It runs just five weeks (end of May to end of June) but meets four nights a week. I hope to continue with tailoring in the fall.
Speaking of tailoring, I'm finishing up my second skirt, to be submitted for review in two weeks (our last class). I've loved my Ladies Tailoring class and I've learned a ton.
And that's it! Lots of sewing planned for the next few days and into next week. Hope your projects are going well.
Have a great day, everybody!
