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).
