The month is half over and I’m still working on that motorcycle jacket! I swear I’ll finish this weekend. I’ve said that the last three weekends, but I mean it this time. Of course, we do have other things going on, like making this beautiful Ikea-hacked light fixture!
Okay, I know it’s a little sad that my first post in a couple months (cat photo collages aside), is vaguely work related, but I just have to share! SF Opera is having a huge costume sale March 22-23! In addition to all sorts of costumes that have actually been onstage, they are also selling crafting supplies and a wide variety of fabrics including vintage textiles, laces, and brocades. They’ll also have jewelry, armor, and other accessories. I’m certainly planning on checking it out, but I suspect I may be too overwhelmed to actually buy anything!

Here in SF we are lucky enough to still have a few roses clinging on into the new year. Roses are one of my very favorite flowers, despite being much more complex than the sweet wildflowers I tend to favor. I think part of it is that they are so ubiquitous and easily identifiable, but also contain such depth and variety, which is clearly evident when visiting a rose garden like the one at GGP, even at this time of year.
I’ve made the move, officially! I know it’s silly for me to be doing this so soon and I’m sure I’ll lose followers who realize that I’m fully acknowledging the transition to cat lady who sometimes sews by this move, but I feel very good about it. Bennomusik was a meaningless pseudonym whose primary function was anonymity. FlowerCat Designs means something, and it will allow me to incorporate my cat more seamlessly in sewing posts. For example:
Thanks for making it to the new site! Be sure to update your readers! I promise there will be more sewing content soon, there’s a lot going on behind the scenes and I’m feeling excited about this new platform!
