I had a two week trip to Turkey booked and as usual planned to make some new clothes to take and get some more exotic photo backdrops than my front door. I went on a shopping spree and got as far as picking out patterns, I even cut out a few things.
Then one of my 2 cats who has been treated for cancer for the last year, rapidly deteriorated and we had to have her put to sleep. Even though she was quite old and with her illness we knew it was coming, it still hit me hard and I just had no motivation to sew. It was undoubtedly the right thing to do, but I still miss the crazy old thing.
On to cheerier stuff, despite my old wardrobe and cat blues we had a wonderful time in Turkey, visiting Istanbul, Cappadocia, Ephesus and finishing with a relaxing few days on the coast.
On to cheery sewing stuff, I have a bunch of things lined up and ready to go, some plans may change, but it's still hot and summery here so hopefully I can still get some use out of the stuff I have traced or cut before fall arrives. More coming soon!
