Hm. Yeah. Sewing Stars is pretty much on permanent hiatus. Sewing burn out, life disappointments, and then a general shift in interests has led me here.
After 6 years in my current little apartment in Providence, I am moving a town away into a small house with the boyfriend and kitty. The first room to pack up is my studio. I have been working my way through my belongings, remembering the joy and pain sewing has brought me. All of my fabric is now stowed away for a 'someday' when the pain part is finally gone from my heart.
On the bright side, the house we are moving to is the house my boyfriend's father and uncle grew up in. His grandmother has gotten too frail to remain living there alone, and they have moved her to a nice place where she is around people all the time. We have cracked open cans of paint and wood polisher, packed up knick-knacks and much more as we prepare for another shift in our lives.
To all the people who have bought or loved my creations, thank you.
Maybe someday I'll figure out where I belong...
