All my bags are packed, I’m (nearly) ready to go…

My sewing corner is all packed away and I sadly tucked my sewing machine into its little box with specially shaped styrofoam cushions this morning.  Not that I’m going anywhere, cause I dont have a visa yet! But we do have to be out of the flat soon!   Just before putting it away I rushed through the remaining items for mending – shirt arm holes and trouser holes.  And then that was it.

I’m excited about meeting some great tailors and in particualr meeting some of the people involved with Samaj Pragati Sahayog in Kumbaya who are doing some pretty amazing sewing. A friend showed me some skirts and blouses she got from them and I am totally drawn to the vibrant colors of their cushion covers and bedspreads. Eek what excitment!

I’m hoping to post some pictures of the wedding dress’s debut in a few days so stay tuned!
