Back in February, I received a bundle of Addi circular needles from my friend Sunny in California. She helped me order them in China (at a very attractive price) last year. After a long wait, I finally got the needles, and, of course, couldn’t wait to try them!
Meanwhile, I received a project from Lorena of the Naked Sheep, a very lovely baby wrap. I finished it in four nights, beside my schoolwork.
Then, I continued my red vest at a turtle speed.
Since there will be a great chance that I am going to work next year (PEY), I spent a few days planning and choosing a subject that I would like to learn in my leisure time for next year. Borrowed some books related to pattern making, couture sewing, and ribbon works from the library, found them interesting, so I want to buy a sewing machine when I receive my first payment from my workplace. I’ve searched around the Internet and some local sewing stores, and decided that I want Pfaff Classic Style Fashion 2023. Yesterday, I ordered Helen Gibb’s Ribbon Set together with the Ribbon Work Technique book and DVD from her website, and some books on couture sewing and fashion sewing from the Amazon. I also requested a catalog from Lesage, the famous embroidery school in Paris. Alas, if I have enough money left at the end of the year, I would definitely go to France and take a course there.
During Reading Weak, I read Christian Dior’s autobiography “Dior by Dior”, and the “Golden Age of Haute Couture”, both published by Victoria and Albert Museum. I was so impressed by the type of perfectionism and idealism couturiers are aiming for. I was overwhelmed by the tint of elegance and delicacy throughout the words and graphs. Great Reads!
School is as busy and crazy as usual. And other annoying things all come together. I am glad that I have really enjoyable hobbies, keeping me fresh and energized everyday.
Last but not least, I am going to Florida in May with my friends. We booked the flights yesterday, and now we are organizing the dining plans. I haven’t been to any Disneyland. I hope Disney will amaze me like my hobbies!
Dad is coming next Monday from China. Would he bring me any presents?
Hahah, I think my blog will be in a big coma again, since I have so much schoolwork waiting for me, and finals are coming soon in mid-April.
I hope I can bring something refresh your eyes next time.
