The Cressida Skirt


For me writing a blog post never comes easy.  My fingers aren't dancing away effortlessly at the keyboard while keeping up with the words oozing out of my head.  I spend a majority of my time thinking, thinking, thinking of what to say then once I think I got it out I end up hitting the backspace button to start all over.  I'm having a particularly hard time with this post.  I've been staring at the white space below this picture literally every night this week.  The reason I'm having such a hard time with this post... I absolutely love this pattern but absolutely hate the way it looks on me.  There you have it, nuff said.  What else could I possibly say? End Post.

Successfully sewing a wearable garment out of a cat themed fabric crowns you as the crazy cat lady in our world.  Me crazy? Yep! I've got the clothing to prove it and the 3 cats...all in the house... and I'm allergic...
