We’re Still Here!!

I need to apologize for my absence of late. I never meant for my presence in Sew Colette to suffer, but it definitely has and I feel terrible about it.

The past two months have been insane with working, moving, being a camp counselor, trying to get my small business going, battling sickness, AND making room for my brother who is newly employed in Vermont (so proud of him!!!). He’ll be staying with us for a few months until he can find his own place, so that means my craft room has been sacrficed. Yeah, I know. I love my family an awful lot!! I was going to post a photo of what my sewing space looks like now so you all can take pity on me, but honestly it’s just shameful. I have stuff EVERYWHERE between the spare room and the dining room which I have commandeered for the time being. It’s a disaster, you guys! I try to always keep a positive outlook on everything but lately the stress has gotten to me a little more than I like to admit.

BUT! The good news is I have my Macaron pattern cut out and the fabric ready to go so I will be finishing the sew along at least. I’ve been majorly behind with my share of the tutorials and guests posts, and again, I’m truly sorry for that. I’ll try to make up for it!

In the mean time I hope everyone has been checking in with Sarah and Erin for some excellent Macaron posts!


I WILL be back!

    I identify with losing sewing space! I just lost my sewing area in a new move, and am now going to have to make do with small space under our lofted bed. Maybe you need a rolling cart to put all your sewing stuff in, so you can move it from space to space:)

    • Hahah a rolling cart is a great idea! I’ve taken over my kitchen table for the time being. Who needs a kitchen table when you have a couch anyway? lol

  • Shoot, girl, sounds like it’s been manic in your neck of the woods! Hope you’re able to slow down and catch a breath soon! Things have been bonkers for me lately, too, so much so that I’m not sure I’ll have a Macaron done in time for the sewalong. 🙁

    • Seems like August has been a crazy month for everyone! Hopefully you can finish your Macaron, but don’t stress about it 🙂

  • Sarah

    We think you’re awesome no matter what! <3 I am proud and happy to be hosting Sew Colette 2.0 with you and Erin!

    Oh man! I’ve been bit by the busy-bug too, so I totally understand! I’ll be excited to catch up on your new work!

    • I know what is it with this month?! Craziness!! I’m definitely looking forward to fall. It seems to slow down then.

  • Julia Bobbin

    I’ve missed you and all your awesomeness! Can’t wait to see your newest creation xxx

    • I’ve missed YOU Miss Julia!! But you have a way better excuse to be away from blogging than I do 😉 Congrats again pretty lady!

    So glad to hear that you and Lucille are still here! What’s even more exciting is that your brother is employed! Big high five to him from me. Good luck with sorting life out. I know you can do it girl!

    • Thanks! Yeah I’m super excited for him. He’ll be making instructional manuals and 3D illustrations for military air craft parts! How cool is that?!

  • I’ve missed you! You sound really busy and I hope you’re having a great end-of-summer. Maybe it’s time for another package swap? 🙂

    • Another package swap would be awesome! …you know. When I have time to ship it lol.
