But I think my batteries are recharged. I have drafted four Japanese sewing patterns and almost finished knitting the sleeves of Bettie's Pullover.
I am itching to sew something, anything! A major holiday treat was the availability of fast free broadband in the house and The Girl and I watched episode after episode of Project Runway - woo hoo! We can't do that at home as our internet is too slow. I really don't know how those designers work so fast and still produce clothes that fit.
This feature really inspires me. I love how the model looks like the same person no matter what she is wearing. Almost like a paper doll with cut-out clothes. She has the same strong lips, jewellery and dark socks in every picture: the base for a multitude of "looks". How would that translate to real life?

Too white / loose-fitting / young.
And thinking that I have lost sight of "my style" again.
And thinking how pretentious that sounds.
I don't want to think myself into a paralysis of indecision. Not everything has to be perfect and there's nothing wrong with trying different things.
Just dive into the stash and see what happens!
