I made this for you.
Not a lot of posting has been going on here. Once the Thanksgiving food coma sets in it usually lasts until sometime after New Years Day. There’s been some slow sewing going on in the background but sadly not enough engine power to follow through with photography and blog posts. Let’s blame it on sun going down a lot faster these days and my body never fully adjusting to getting up early in winter. Does anyone else get the Winter blues? I promise I stopped drinking but I can’t manage to get out of bed until 8:15 only to be rushed out of my house and be miserable on the train with everyone else.
I’m not recapping my year unfortunately or doing Top/Worst 5s (not my style). But I will say that I’m thankful for a handful of things mostly non-sewing related. Some of them including participating in my friend’s podcast about hobbies, where I learned that I say actually too much and then got drunk and called Lanvin a he. Taking an 11 day hiking trip with my boyfriend in Utah, in which at first I was scared we weren’t going to make it through but only brought us closer together and gave proof to the world that I can survive in the wild (here’s hoping I never have to). Lastly, learning the limits of my body and realizing that with age it’s imperative to stretch and remember posture, otherwise muscles in your butt you never knew existed start spasming and put pressure on your sciatic nerve. Oh yeah.. let’s not forget when I almost turned into a Sleepwalker from my 2 day ER stint thanks to a cat bite.
As the year ends and another begins, here’s to making mistakes twice or as many more until you learn, here’s to not taking yourself so seriously, and seeing the silver lining in everything.
Finally here’s to each and every person that has given me words of encouragement and admiration on my blog, in emails and real life. This year I’ve made more sewing friends than I can imagine and I’m so grateful that everyone is so freakin’ awesome.
