Officially on hiatus…

It kind of goes without saying, but yes, I’ve put sewing on hiatus for a bit.  I’m just too busy with moving and other things to have been doing much sewing, although I have done a small bit lately, it’s nothing to write home about.  I have some pictures from Halloween to post sometime this week – I didn’t have time to make a new costume this year so I re-wore an old one, but we did go to a nice cemetery to take some photos.

In the meantime, here are some pics of the coat I made a few months ago – the weather is finally cold enough to wear it, although I never thought I’d be excited about winter weather, I do love wearing my new coat!

Well, winter is coming upon us again – despite the fact that it’s averaging about 90 degrees here still, I can’t help but feel that cold weather is right around the corner.  I really hate the cold, and winter in general, so one thing I tend to do every year is buy myself a new, cute coat, so that there’s something for me to get excited about when winter hits – well, this year, I decided I’d make myself a new coat instead.

Costumes for sale!

Just wanted to post a little heads-up!  I’ve just put my wonderful green gown up for sale in my Etsy shop – fast, I know!  Actually, I’m going to be buying a condo, so I’m hoping to kill two birds with one stone and clear up some closet space as well as get a little extra cash for my move by listing some of my own personal costumes.  The Katherine Pierce gown is the only one up so far, but later this week I’ll be going through my closet and seeing what I can unload, and hopefully get a few more things listed (costumes and vintage clothing.)  The great news for you is that because my costumes are from my own personal collection, slightly used and with flaws, I’ll be listing them at fairly low prices (honestly, this is also in an effort to just finally get rid of some things that have been taking up a lot of space in my closets!)

I know my Etsy store has been kind of a dead space since I opened it nearly two years ago – I wish I had an excuse, but I just haven’t been really dedicated to making it a priority.
