Interesting Things

So, I have not sewn anything for a couple of weeks, and it may be a couple more before I make anything new.  I've been sick for awhile, and it's not going to change anytime soon.  (My visit to the endocrinologist is not for awhile.)  I am very slowly working on a Vogue skirt, but I am at the fitting stage (my least favorite stage of all) and finding it hard to get up any motivation.  I may switch to a pattern I've made before, but then again, I may not.  Ah well.

Anyway, since there is no sewing going on, I thought I would get a little personal and let you know somethings about me that I have maybe not shared.

1)  I am a film writer for the MacGuffin website.  If you are interested, my stuff can be found here.

2)  I do not make etchings very often, but my degree is in printmaking and painting, so when I ask you to come look at my etchings, I mean it.

3) My favorite cake flavor is peanut butter.  I am gluten intolerant, but I can make most any cake/cookie/quickbread type item by substituting gluten-free flour for wheat flour by weight.

4) I read a lot.  I am a big fan of mysteries and Victorian sensation novels.  I am not particularly fond of modern literary fiction or Charles Dickens.  The best book I read last year was A Hazard of New Fortunes by William Dean Howells.  I don't think he is a particularly fashionable person to read anymore, but this was a lovely book about life in New York City at the end of the 19th Century.

1)  I love to travel.  This year's trips will include Austin, Hawaii, Taiwan, and probably Korea (again).  I could never afford to travel when I was younger, so I am taking full advantage of it now.

Well, that's enough for today.  Have a great week!

Feel better soon!

Get better soon! I love travelling vicariously by reading stories placed in London on New York, and I downloaded the book to my Kindle right away!

I like the etching--I cannot draw or paint anything to save my life. Hope you can get your health sorted.
