greetings to June! and the sun came out yesterday afternoon!!! after a couple weeks of rain and gray, i seriously welled up and almost cried, i was so happy.
sooooo, it is sewing month. making a dress. i have my mom's sewing machine here, been here for months, and i guess i just assumed i would use it. she texted me today that she was coming over to get her sewing machine! so, maybe i can rent one. after all, it is hers. :) and she is taking it to take in some clothes of hers that i had said i would help with, but never did. sorry, mom! in my ideal life, i have days that i can spend sewing and helping my mom fix up her wardrobe.
so, gardening month is over. i finished the book i was reading last night. and as you know, i loved it. he puts together some simple "rules" for eating at the end of the book, and they are well thought out and simple. he actually has a new book out that pretty much covers those rules, you know, for the americans that don't have time to sit down and read a 200 page book. it's like the cliff notes of In the Defense of Food. it's called Food Rules by Michael Pollan. i still have my food out there growing, and i still need to get the things so my food can grow up instead of all over each other. maybe today! since i am home with a sick little girl and not at work.
so, I am busily checking out sewing books on amazon. I have heard SewU books from Built by Wendy are good. and i saw some others, but then i read the reviews. i guess some people are just going to hate things. no matter how much other people like them. i seem to have this love hate thing with reviews, i want them to be helpful...but then i talk myself out of almost everything because of the negative reviews. i almost didn't go to a hotel that i ended up absolutely loving because of a negative review.
and there is a little fabric shop here in capitol hill called Stiches. i am going to check that out, they have classes...none for a dress, but maybe i could do a bag. and see if they rent a machine! :)
