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.
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.
