Hello Gorgeous: An Explication of the Picture of My Studio in its True State
I had a real breakthrough moment last Thursday when, for the first time in my life, I was able to have someone come into my work studio without apologizing for the mess. It felt GOOD! And it feels even better because she is going to be coming twice a week for sewing lessons and she's already seen the room in its natural state--she has no expectations that it will ever be any tidier. I'm very proud of myself.
Oh, the title--Hello Gorgeous. My student is a delightful 8-year-old who picked the Hello Gorgeous print by Windham Fabric to use for her first project. I've decided to call her "Hello Gorgeous." And she likes it. :)
PS: I've heard tell that smiley emoticons are very passe. I don't care. I like smiling. :) :) :)
3-23-08 just finished Jennifer Estep: Karma Girl. Comic-bookish, superhero novel, romance (I didn't realize it was a romance when I checked it out--I definitely prefer mysteries), easy brain-candy read
3-14-08 just finished Laura Lippman: What the Dead Know. Pretty good mystery, nice twist; great brain candy
3-8-08 Ed McBain: The Gutter and the Grave (classic noir mystery from 50s)
