I know it’s been a while, but there are exciting things on the horizon! Be on the look out for our new look!
Hello dear and faithful readers (I’m not sure if I have any…).
I know I haven’t updated much, but with the move to California for my new gig at Disney, I’ve been super super busy. But I digress.
The creator of Apartment Farm, Amanda Olsen, is writing pieces on French Food in Chicago for The Examiner. Her most recent article, 5 Essentials for your French Kitchen, is up now. I know some of you are foodies so get to reading.
I just need to vent about a non-sewing issue. I’m completely freaking out. I desperately need employment in my field (computer graphics and motion technology) and I’ve been applying and applying places much to no avail. I received a voice mail from the recruiter at Walt Disney Animation Studios for a Talent Development program, which lets face it, if I am accepted would be so bad ass, but when I called him back I received his voice mail. I mean I know he is a super busy guy, I half didn’t expect him to answer, but I’m SO nervous. This guy and I have exchanged numerous amounts of emails and I was sure that he was ready to tell me I am in! But his voice mail says he has some more questions and wants to know more about my career goals. I don’t know what my career goals are! I mean I know I don’t want to be working for MTTV any more. And I know that I want to work in feature films. But doing what exactly? I DON’T KNOW. I have a fear that I am going to completely screw this up.
Today I made a chocolate fudge cake from scratch AND made 2 bow ties.
Do men wear bow ties with flowers? Either way, one day I will make some man very happy.
I think I previously mentioned how all my friends are having babies. Some of my friends with babies are luckier than others because I try out making baby stuff for them. Or maybe they are the unlucky one’s. Anyway, I’ve recently fallen in love with Oliver + S. She makes amazing patterns for kiddos. Today, I am tackling the Tea Party Dress. It’s taken me all day despite being only 1 scissor in difficulty. Apparently, I’m not as good as I thought I was haha. This was my first time working with buttons. I’ve been nervous about trying my button hole foot. But it turns out it was easy peasy. Anyway, without further adieu, here it is.Fabric used: “Farmdale crosshatch” – Alexander Henry and orange cotton (not sure who made). The pattern and fabric were purchased at The Needle Shop (big surprise there I know).
