Did someone try to come to my house last night and didn't make it in? I'm so sorry, but the buzzer goes to Jesse's phone and he was unable to let people in. I didn't think of this when I invited people over. Please let me know if you buzzed and were left outside. I'll find a way to make it up to you, perhaps with yarn?

birds don't have careers

I often wish I was retired.

I like the idea of puttering around the house baking bread from scratch and persuing the many crafts I seem determined to try.

In that vein I have begun sewing.

Well I've puttered with the idea before and I finally signed up for a sewing class. It went well, but my skirt was not completed in the course of the class. I picked out a swingy circle skirt in this fabric:

Wait, can you see my purse on top? Can you tell I like poppies?

I enjoyed how fast sewing is compared to knitting, but it felt fussier as well and the mistakes aren't as easy to fix.

I have an ancient Singer and am trying to decide if I should soup it up or trade it in?

And I actually have begun baking bread, albeit with a thriftscored bread machine. Pretty tasty though.

I knew the bride when...

My best friend, Opie got hitched by the sea on September 30th to sweet, kind John. It was a lovely wedding with a rolicking reception.

This was my third time as a bridesmaid and I was glad to be promoted to Maid of Honor. It was a lot of work, but definitely worth every shopping trip and envelope stamped to see her so proud and happy on her day.

I always wanted to dance with the bride.
