Sunday Lately :: Week 70

May 1, 2016

Angelica, Meaghan, Nicole, and myself. We e-hang out every Sunday, sharing a small glimpse into the last week of life in our own worlds. We’d love if you could join us!

This week’s themes: Completing, Visiting, Repeating, Writing, Scheduling.

Completing. April’s hell week.  And coming out mostly alive.  We’ve been working so, so hard to launch the new rebrand and it’s finally here.  I still don’t feel 100% prepared, and there are things that need to go online still…but we are close enough.  I call that a win.  www.ThreadandGrain.com come check us out!  (And if you’re on Instagram, find us @threadandgrain for a Launch Party discount announcement!

Visiting. Centre Market in Wheeling yesterday with my Momma, Bennett, Louis and a bunch of our friends for an “Afternoon in Centre Market“.  May is Preservation Month and the Wheeling Young Preservationists kicked it off (a day early) with a tour of a thriving part of our city, which also resulted in discounts at nearly all of the local businesses down there.  Later Alligator even created a new special drink: The New Old Fashioned.  It was full of yum.

Photo lovingly stolen from Alex P's instagram because Louis was using my phone the entire time we were drinking these and I never got a chance to take a picture.

Repeating. “I think I can, I think I can.” All day.  Because I’ve got a laundry list of things to make happen today.  GAH!  Why do I do this to myself?

Writing. A fun post that goes live on May 3.  Just wait.  I have entered myself into Crafting Con this year, with a Star Wars theme.  And I am so so so so excited to show the look I’ve created for Louis.  

Scheduling. Some time for myself to get some selfish sewing done.  Normally I don’t call it that.  But damnit this time it is selfish.  I  just want to create something without pressure of it needing to be for something particular.  I realized the other day that most of the shirts in my closet are long sleeves and we are coming into the warmer months (kinda…it was hella cold last night!) and I need short sleeves and tanks to get me through.  A date with my sewing machines would be just the thing I need.
