i never really believe the weather report.
so when i heard that we were getting a massive snowstorm on Friday, i put on my turquoise cowboy boots thinking nothing of it.
next time i will not underestimate the power of the [force] weather.
my balcony yesterday after gigantic storm. i was actually walking around in it on Friday evening. this is after all my good neighbors shoveled and chopped up the ice. see, it wasn't so much snow, as ice. pelting my face so i had to raise my mittened hands to block the ice chips. i've heard it's the same sensation as riding a motorcycle in the rain. that's comforting.
my doc martens are sufficient for such weather, but i think next year i'll invest in some nice lovely warm snow boots. good investment. maybe even napolean dynamite style.
in other news.
i sold a sweater! to the same lovely woman who bought the bracelet [aka my first sale].
detail of applique and embroidery on back. before sending, i added a button in the center [where you see the swirl] to finish it off. and a hand-embroidered label w/ pinkgraffiti logo.
of course inspired, i started another sweater yesterday, a small one for all you petite women! it fits me, but is a bit small for my taste. similar design to this one sold, but w/ different fabric and on a red sweater. here's a peek.
it's a bit altered from this photo since i started sewing it. 2 different fabrics, one layered on top of the other. the first layer [underneath] is a sparkly silver, while the fabric on top is pink and purple striped. i've been waiting to use that fabric. i had very little of it, so thought this would be perfect. it will also come with a pin on the front of the sweater, which will match the design in back. for a finishing touch, a red anchor button on back, and on pin. this will be finished today [more pink stitching to do], and hopefully listed tonight!
happy sacred sunday!
