I have a long way to go, so I'm trying to remind myself: It's a marathon, not a sprint! And with my first teacher work day happening tomorrow, I don't have the energy (or time) to re-draft this blog post, so I'm just gonna cheat, and link you to the post I just did for the Chanel Jacket Sew Along.
I have 1 piece left to quilt, but my walking foot keeps snagging my boucle. Kind of a pain in the butt. I've had lots of embroidery jobs keeping me busy (saving up for my next NYC trip already), so we'll see how much gets done this week! I think the next step will go quickly (Yay! for machine stitching!), and closing the lining will be the next ugly step.
I'm expecting my fabric to arrive from NYC any day now. I got some really lovely pieces at Paron's and Metro Textile. I'll photograph and post my faves once they land and relax!
Non-Sewing NYC Moment:
Friday night after dinner, we stumbled across a little shop called "Fur & Furgery". As we looked at all the lovely items in the window, the owner waved us in and showed us some of the amazing garments and hats he's made. The lovely I'm modeling above is a reproduction of a hat he made for the Queen of England. When the cashmere cloche he's making me arrives, I'll be sure to photograph it and show you!
