I am sipping my morning smoothie, and trying to get back into the groove of updating my blogs again. My Laptop is acting stupid, so I have to borrow my son’s computer. It has been a long Summer, and Fall it sneaking up fast. The leaves are turning orange and red, and just barley starting to fall. I need to go out and take some pictures for you all. I love this time of the year. My chickens are now laying eggs, and the kiddos are back in School. I thought that maybe life would slow down a bit, but I guess having a Jr. Higher, and a High School-er, that was a joke thinking that on my part! I feel like I have been busier that ever, and we are just in the beginning of the School year! On a lighter note, I cut my hair!!!! I was tired of always putting it in a pony tail. I am happy, and it takes up so much less shampoo! LOL!
Okay, so what next for Sew Reclaimed?! Well, Family has been taking a lot of my time, but I am still fighting to keep things alive and well with, “SR” (Sew Reclaimed). I am going to be making some more fingerless gloves, and creating some new vintage inspired fascinator hats. This will be a new adventure for me, but ever since I was little, I loved playing with my Mom’s Vintage 1920’s hats. My sister and I would get all dressed up and play for hours! I loved those hats, and can’t wait to relive some childhood memories recreating my own version of them! This year, I will sew more Pinafores, Peasant dresses, and jumpsuits. I am not sure what size I will do, but if you have a kid size you want me to incorporate, just message me. I don’t do, “made to orders”, since most of my material is reclaimed and random, but I can definitely make sure your child size is included in my line of child clothing. I can do sizes 0-6.
I know I may be all over the map with this blog today, but that is just where my head is….it’s Monday! Here is a dress that I am working on right now.I am thinking of adding some appliquéd fall leaves to the top. Not sure, but we will see. I am also thinking of cutting the sleeves and adding sleeves like the other sweater I made here.
The possibilities are endless.
The other day, I created this little number:
I have a lot of zippers, so I figured why the hell not….let’s get a little crazy! It is still a little small on me, so I might tailor it to my daughter size. Or maybe, someone who likes waisted sweaters will like it on Etsy, or Ebay. Let me know what you think…in the comments below what I should do with it.
Hmmm, what else can I write about, since this blog is kind of ate up’!! Seriously, it is totally random! I just received a phone call from my brother from California while writing this blog. I think we talked for a whole hour! Now, I am back trying to figure out what next to write. Who knows, maybe this will be the best blog I’ve ever written since it is so RAW! Maybe, I have been doing it wrong this whole time! Wouldn’t that be funny?! I started writing this blog in the morning and it is now 1:20pm!!! Time flies when your ADD!
Okay, seriously, time to get the house done before the kiddos arrive from School. I think I am going to try to make some home-made Ravioli. I watched it on Lara Vitale, and it looks easy enough. I love “Laura in the Kitchen”! Here are the links, and I hope you enjoyed my Ramblings for the day!!! Happy Reclaiming, and Happy Pasta Making if you do this recipe!
