True to my word, I haven’t had time to sew. In two weeks I have lived through an earthquake (interesting), a hurricane (blessedly undwerwhelming) and now this week a street race! This weekend Baltimore is hosting our first Grand Prix. An actual Indy style street race in our downtown.
This has been in the works for over a year an I can’t believe it’s FINALLY here. I’ve spent most of the weekend at the race working and can’t wait for Monday so I can sleep. I think my ears are still ringing…. If you want to see what it’s like, it’s airing on Versus and ABC today (Sunday).
My friend Catalina (the owner of Frida) is back from Espana. While there she picked up some Patrones as a little gracias for taking care of her pooch.
This Mango cape absolutely caught my eye (click to enlarge)! I have two Burberry wools that I’m contemplating. I just hate the thought of matching big plaids on the exterior (shudder).
It’s no longer on Mango. But, is for sale on ASOS for $102. Only the Large available. And, it’s not even wool! I can definitely do this for less than $100 and it will be a better fabric.
I haven’t had time to try and suss out the description. Can we seriously talk about how my sub par Spanish has deteriorated? I was barely able to order papusas last week.
This week, I also got some bra laces I ordered from RainCrazy133 on Etsy. I bought these to coordinate with some packets I have from Summerset. The prices are very reasonable and shipping our of Hong Kong is great. Again, I just don’t know of a resource like this in the US.
If you ask, she’ll send you mirror cuts if they are available.
Oh, and I’ve put in paperwork to adopt a dog. I’m SO SO nervous. I love the idea of a pet, but what if I don’t like being a pet owner? What if I feel tied down? What if it’s too much responsibility for me? What if it gets expensive? What if I want to travel? Why do I feel the same way about a dog as I do about having children? I kid. Well, not really.
I’ll hopefully start meeting candidates this week. I’m in NO rush. I want to make sure I do the right thing.
That’s it. I have no sewing in the actual works and don’t expect to get anything done for a while. But, still think about it every minute like I’m sewing for my supper. That my friends, is the definition of obsession.
