Working

I've finally gotten myself a nice, bright and big workspace that I've been in for a couple of weeks, which has enabled me to be so much more productive than trying to work from the apartment. Mainly, it may be that my computer isn't there, and I'm not as distracted by emails and internet surfing. All I want to do is work when I'm there, and then I can call it a day and go home and leave my work behind. 

The space is great, and in an amazing location right on the water in DUMBO, but my view is of the building adjacent. The view from the other side (and bathroom as pictured) is AMAZING. Maybe after awhile, I'll promote myself and move to the other side and get that Manhattan skyline and river view. I must say, that river certainly stinks, though! Or maybe it's the nuclear energy plant that's across the street. I don't know what it is.  For now, I'm happy peeking into the windows of the people across the way, and catching a tiny glimpse of the Manhattan and Brooklyn bridges.

I've been hard at work on the Bluefly collection, and have been doing a gown here and there to satisfy my creative itches. I dropped a big box of pins yesterday, and kind of loved the pattern it made. I didn't even pick them up either. They always end up on the floor anyway!
 
Still no camera. I need to get it fixed. These were taken by my phone.

Well your phone takes way better pics than mine for what it's worth.

HOORAY for dedicated work spaces! I can't wait for the day when I can have mine (maybe this summer). Congratulations on yours, and here's to the upgrade with better views. I have no doubt that it's in your near future!

Congratulations on the workspace! I'm totally jealous - that skyline looks lovely, even if you can't see it normally.

Can't wait to see your collection for Bluefly. :) I know I can't afford any of it but I'm dying to see!

Love the red/pinkish design!! Interesting pattern of pins. We should all take in small things like that and enjoy them just as much! Good luck with the collection! Not that you need it, your work is gorgeous!!

We are currently in the midst of the last Project Runway (we are very behind here in NZ) and I suddenly recognised you from Etsy. At that stage I didn't know who had won, but had my bets that it was you. And I was right! Fabulous talent and personality; you were great to watch as was Jerell. All the best for Bluefly.

Hooray for the new space and for the upcoming BlueFly collection! Hope you're less homesick and that NYC is treating you well!

Impressive phone pictures. Why get the real camera fixed?
The red top you're working on is beautiful.
