Well, not really a blue weekend, per se, but all of Sunday was lost to being ill, so I feel a little robbed of my full weekend potential, you know?
Saturday brought the local Farmer’s Market, where I picked up this week’s CSA offering. This is the first year we’ve participated in a CSA (having wanted to for years, but never having made the deadline for signing up before). Absolutely loving it! The first tomatoes of the season were part of the offering this week–along with eggplant, cucumbers, zucchini, green bell peppers, carrots and potatoes! Big Summer Stew coming up for tonight’s meal. Nom!
Worked on some sequining & beading for one of the bustiers that will be part of the upcoming shoot. In retrospect, I’m not sure how well SEQUINS will show up in a photograph, but….well, it’s done now, lol.
Then Sunday rolled around, and I was in bed battling a severe headache and body pains until around 1pm. It was awful. Once I managed to drag myself out of the bedroom, onto the couch (still in pj’s and with half the headache hanging on), the Husband and I binge-watched the entire season of “The Devil is a Part-timer!” on Netflix–and loved it!
Here’s to the week starting, my head not trying to kill me, and a productive week ahead! Happy Monday!
I’ve been working on orders as well as items for the upcoming photo shoots–still SO excited!!
Husband has been out of town, which allows me to
stock up on junk food get a lot more sewing done, since I am able to sew into the evening hours–I don’t really cook when it’s just me.
While I work, I’ve been listening to “The Tudors: The Complete Story of England’s Most Notorious Dynasty” by G.J. Meyer, and I have to say–I’m loving it! I love history, and have always loved reading about any of the Tudors, but sometimes the books can be, let’s just say, a wee bit dry. Not the case here–it’s so interesting, and I’m even learning things I’ve not encountered in other books! Really worth it, if you’re a history nerd like me.
Have a fabulous weekend!
Didn’t I JUST say that I wanted to break the cycle of posting just photo shoots?
Ahhh, well–this is new! And I wanted to share it before I forgot ALL ABOUT IT! (which I’ll do over the weekend, most likely)
Just a little product shoot with the beautiful Yuri, who I’ve gotten to work with a few times now–you’ll recognize her from the Boa Shoot and the Mardi Gras Shoot. She lives down the road–how lucky am I?
A few new pieces, a few new shots of older pieces.
Some new Swing Tanks, a new Crop Top, new Babydoll Tunics, new Sweetheart Neckline Bustiers….
And new shots of capelets and a cincher skirt.
We had so much fun, even though I had hoped to have more to photograph–as I mentioned, orders have been rolling in, and that means less time to create new things.
What do you think?
New Babydoll Tunics
The Official Photos from the Mardi Gras shoot are in! Just in time for the season, as Fat Tuesday is almost upon us (one week from tomorrow!).
All items are now available (ready to ship or made to order) in my shop.

Just a sampling–the light was so perfect and the sky so blue this day!
After a long (looooooooong) and unintentional blog-hiatus, I’m back!
Really, that was a long time to be away.
Blame instagram–it’s so much easier to post a picture with a one-liner, and go about my merry way.
Also: business has been pretty kick ass since before Halloween, and I’ve been busy sewing (and upgrading my studio).
I figured some images from a Mardi Gras themed shoot I did this week would be in order for my first post back in this cob-web-filled space.
These are just images that I took–I’m anxiously (yet patiently) waiting for the final edits from Underexposed Photography, whom you’ll recognize from past shoots.

I love this black and gold striped fabric.
Sadly, I haven’t been able to find it for some time now.
Made into a stunning bustier (which I loooooove). I’ve made these for a few years now. This is the last of the line, until I can magically acquire more fabric (fingers crossed).
Lined in black twill.
Flexible boning sewn into the lining.
Grommets and a modesty panel in back.
So pretty with formal as well as casual looks.
bust: 29-32 inches
waist: 25-28 inches

I can’t believe Mardi Gras is next week. Already!
In honor of the impending (and ongoing) festivities, some images from the recent (and thematically appropriate) shoot.
