Moving to New York was certainly the toughest move ever. While I flew out here and have been here for almost 4 weeks, my stuff from Portland that was shipped freight, never decided to show up until this week. It's a long, frustrating story.
Alas, I've been without tools, machines, specific fabrics and needless to say, I have lost a lot of time. I've decided to do a static presentation during fashion week and it is about 3 weeks away. I have 2.5 things done at this moment. I want 12 looks. It's going to be hellish these next few weeks, but I'm going to do whatever it takes. And I want it to be good. This is the challenge of challenges and I'm going to try to document it as much as possible.
To add on top of that, I'm having to work out of our apt for the time being, which I've done for years, so no biggie. The catch is Monkey, Nathan's cat. Well, Monkey has impeccable taste when it comes to choosing a spot to sleep on. Monkey prefers to lie on the most expensive of silks, and scratch her claws on only the finest of wools. Monkey has now been banned from this room, but she always tries to go where she's not allowed. I love Monkey, but she is mischievous!
This is going to be tough, but I'm excited to be back to work again and I'm excited for the task at hand. I am not well when I'm not creating, and I fall into a bad rut. It's exhilarating to sit down and sew and drape after having not. It's also reassuring to know that I haven't forgotten a thing, despite silly doubts that enter my mind sometimes. I made some really great boobie-cups yesterday! :)
