Good Morning Sewcialites!
Last time we connected, I was in the process of getting ready to become “Miami Famous!” and that trip couldn’t have come at more perfect time. As I landed in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, many of my runner friends were receiving cancellation notifications of their flights due to the impact of “snowmegeddon” Jonas. While they were digging out the snow, I was helping to run one of my best friends across the finish line as she completed her very first half marathon. That’s 13.1 miles of pure awesomeness! Although, its not the Olympic Gold, the moment was just as sweet.
But before we took to the streets to run the Miami ING Half Marathon, we took the opportunity to volunteer for the 5k race the day before. It always feels good to be able to give back to a community that has given so much to me.
While I had plans of wearing these garments that I rushed to make and have dry cleaned 3 days before leaving, the weather in Miami would not let me be great. It was cool and rainy. Oh, how disappointed I felt, but then I pepped up after realizing that I had sewn 3 garment pieces over a 3 day period when these same pieces took me 2 weeks to create just a year ago. While I still have more growing to do, my sewing skills have improved greatly! If you’re just getting started in your sewing journey, these were quick and easy to sew up using several of the MiMi G video tutorials.
Remember the house? Things are coming along quite nicely!
I’ve also decided that until this move is complete, garment sewing will be put on hold. However, I did manage to complete this quick little, fun project for my NEW baby niece,”The Knotted Baby Head Tie” using the tutorial found on the “How Does She?” website. Just wrap around, tie a knot and voila! I plan to make her many more.
I think that’s about Sewcialites! Its Valentine’s Day Weekend. Be sure to give some extra love to that special person in your life, even if that special person is you. You deserve it!
Until next time Sewcialites, remember to “rest in the joy of laughter, find comfort in the presence of friends and an enduring calm in a brief moment of peace”.
