the time has come. i always knew that april was going to be a doozy of a month for me. and now that its here.... well. its a doozy!
and so the time has come, my friends, for me to take a short blog break. alas! do not fret over my absence! for i only leave for to doeth the thingseth that needeth to get done. eth.
cough. see what being strung out does to me?? it makes me talk in bad made up 15th century melodramatic speak!! and it also makes me write sentences like that last one! (get a grip sallie! get a grip!!)
okay but for realz here. april is a busy month for me at work (and i haven't done my taxes yet!!!!!!!!!!! h&r block please stop emailing me because its making me stress ooouuuutttttt!!!!) and while i really like to pretend i'm one of those superwomen who get extra motivated by a full schedule and can do things like get to the gym at 5am (gym??! who's that?) in reality i just shut down and become a mushy slushy thing with two eyeballs peeping bewilderingly around me. yes. that is an accurate description. no i'm not exaggerating.
so things will be pretty quiet around here for the next week or two. my usual mode of operation is to just go all m.i.a. on you and then reappear and be all like "sorry!!!" but this time i decided to give you fair warning and be proactive about it. (see, self, i can be proactive about something!)
in the meantime, i am actually working on some sewing. i just started my final rachel comey pattern, v1170, which is a tricksy little pattern, but i'll give full details on that when i finish it!
and in other sewing world news... i've decided to participate in me-made-may 2012! i think may will be a much quieter month than april and i think i can handle the challenge.
i, sallie of sallieoh.blogspot.com, sign up as a participant of me-made-may '12. i endeavor to wear one self-made article of clothing, and to mix and match said articles of clothing to the best of my ability, each day for the duration of may 2012.
i'll be outlining my goals for the challenge closer to may.
also! did you guys see all the new colette patterns?!? i'm sure you did. and did you see that they're hosting a spring/summer palette challenge!!? i loved the fall challenge and since spring here has seriously been a blip on the ol' radar i've already been turning my thoughts to summer sewing. i think this will help me focus and edit my plans which have been a bit erratic.
well, lets close out this post and get this blog break started. final questions:
what do you do when you feel like your life is out of balance?
will you be participating in me-made-may? and if so, what are your reasons?
whats your favorite new colette pattern? mine's hazel.
and from the department of random - what do you think of hats? i've been really craving some hats lately...
well friends, i'll see you on the flip side...
