I know.. Lately I have been real, real quiet here on the blog. You know before I became a fabric addict and fell in love with the sewing machine, I was in love only with painting and glued to my stylus at work. I have been missing this lost part of my old live and a few weeks ago I was lucky enough, to land a job at Nadus Films a non profit company. Coury, the founder and director of Nadus is trying to make more people aware of the plight of the Sudanese people. He is in the process of making an amazing film and I have the honor of painting the introduction to the film, which is also being animated! Needless to say, I have been very busy on that front. In addition to my chores as mother and housekeeper there is precious little time for sewing!
Yet, even though my fingers and mind are happy painting, they were also itching to sew so badly!
So yesterday I took the day off! I locked myself in the sewing room and made Roberta pants, a Leni top and together with various e-books that I had already made here and there crocheing and knitting, my Ella is all decked out : )
I simply ADORE Farbenmix patterns and e-books!
In a more somber mood I was just thinking...We are so lucky to have what we have, even in these tough economic times!
