Hello again! I’ve had a rotten cold for the past few weeks; it really is hanging around and manifesting most uncomfortable post-viral symptoms like horrendous itch and general grumpiness. Is that too much information for you? So I’ve done some therapeutic sewing, but then have been too tired to convert what I’ve made into a blog post. You’ll get glimpses of new items in these composite photos of what I’ve been wearing over the past almost two weeks.

The garments I’ve made since my huge wardrobe purge have been very satisfying for me. I feel that I’ve really started to plug some holes and to make some more items that feel very me. There are more that I’ll get rid of yet, and others that are almost right but not quite. It’s an interesting process of exploration. Well, it’s interesting to me, if not to others. Raise your glasses, GOMI!
