One reason I’m motivated to clean my sewing room is because I’m missing a beloved tool. It’s a Dritz C-Thru ruler. What makes it beloved, is the numbers were all printed in pink. I know it’s not missing forever. I remember putting it away and telling myself ‘better remember where you’ve put this’. Same with my iPod’s FM Modulator. The modulator I ‘put away’ about two years ago. I’m still looking for that. And the C-thru ruler.
Above are are some of my pink notions. My vintage Traum Tracing wheel, an Olfa rotary cutter (ergonomic too!), a regular ball point pen (but I bought a box of them ‘cuz they were pink), and a vintage Dritz tracing wheel.
By 11 this morning I also managed to trace and layout the BWOF 4-2007-114 blouse. Whee!! I’m going to run some errands, visit some friends and cut out later today.
And, in honor of Easter, I’m wearing Sag Harbor by Essie. You might think it’s similar to China Glaze’s For Audrey. But, it’s a cool, gray blue. Versus the Tiffany tourquisey blue (compare below). Sag Harbor is kinda chalky on the first application, better on the second. But, it took a long time to dry — even with rapid dry drops. I woke up with little hair marks on it.
And finally, check out Marji’s blog today. She’s proposing we all drop her (or Taunton) a line. Perhaps we can help motivate them to release Threads on DVD. Which would be great for me, becaus I STILL don’t subscribe. I remember when I would be lost reading it. Everything went over my head. Now, I understand so much more of it and would like to get my hands (easily) on the back issues.
