A Change In Plans
Due to circumstances that were unfortunately under my lame control, my life is about to change. Hopefully for the better.
I am leaving Richmond and moving back to my hometown. I'm sure long-time readers have noticed an underlying theme running through this blog for a long while, the fact that there were many things I had to deny myself because I lacked the money. I have some financial issues to clear up as I have been running on fumes for quite a while. For the last five years I found myself in a job that was meant to have been temporary, which I took to gain experience but for very little money. At some point, I lost the motivation and confidence to move on and get a job that fully utilized my skills and challenged me. School loan payments, medical bills, and the misguided notion of living alone drained my resources and filled me with constant stress. So my goal is to not only pay off debt but to shore up my confidence, and improve my allover health.
So wish me luck. Actual sewing by me will be sporadic but what else is new? I have many (oh so many) draft posts on fashion and style to publish on this blog, so don't go anywhere. I actually have two finished items to show you but packing has gotten in the way of photo shoots and one of the projects is still embargoed. I do hope to make it back for the Hollywood Costume exhibit at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in November since I'll only be 90-some miles away, so perhaps I'll see a few of you there?
