NOPE your eyes are not deceiving you! If you look careful at the dates, you DO see that it has been about a year since I have done ANY sort of entries to this blog. What promises I have broken is that in my entry from last May 2018 I SWORE to myself ( and to you- whoever is reading…) that I was going to “do better” and post a something- ANYTHING, maybe even at least once per month.
YEP – completely didn’t fulfill that promise!! Utter failure. Sorry to those who might have missed me.( OK SORRY to my dear friend CINDY who was the “sewing muse” to start this blog !!! ) I gotta tell ya– this keeping up with sewing and blogging thing is not as easy as it looks when you have a whole other life to meet responsibilities for.
For those of you who may not know I have “another life” as a registered nurse. Just after my grandiose public promise to sew and blog more, I made the decision last summer to go back to school and pursue higher level learning within the nursing field. Was the best decision ever for me, but totally clipped my wings and messed with my time management for having the time for sewing and blogging.
Ok I might make you mad, but I don’t really feel any guilt or remorse for my broken promises. To be honest , the real pain is that I feel like a “shlumpadinka”by not having as many Me Made articles of clothing that I would want to have had by now hanging in my closet and worn on my back.( Shlumpadinka–yeah that’s a real NYC fashion word!! Or maybe check with Oprah’s best friend Gail King who uses it…..) ANYWAY…
What drew me “back to the path” of writing and posting today is that I will be teaching and leading a class this fall at Camp Workroom Social In honor of the fact that some folks might need to know a little bit about me before they decide to sign up for my class track, I put a bunch of pics of past and more current sewing work on my Instagram page. The Gram page leads to this blog page. So here I am welcoming myself ( and you ) back to my blog. In case you missed it my Instagram is @tailorchick
From here on out NO MORE PROMISES ! Well- I promise that if I actually sew and complete a project, I will post it. Again- I am in no rush to get multiple things done just to say I completed X amount of garments in a month. Not in a rush to even get stuff done before Camp in the fall. As you can tell from what I am Graming, I enjoy the process of making and crafting a garment and work at my own pace- CUZ I CAN !! I am content to know that there is no ” shame in my game” for doing so.
Then again there is also the fact that I have multiple papers to write and much research to do for school. No ” shame in my game” for doing that either.
And so CHEERS to a new sewing and blogging beginning. However it may be with “fits and starts and stops”. Stay tuned ( or at least turn on the notifications alert if you’re interested..) for what more to come.
THANKS! And be well…
One thought on “Promises Promises- a year later!”
Love this and love you! Just keep moving forward and sewing. Congrats on Camp Workroom Social!!
