I've been sorta avoiding this post ... because I just don't know what to say. Well I guess there's one thing to say ...
I finished sewing in the lining two weeks ago right after I wrote my last update
. Since then, my sweet purse has been sitting on the ironing board (in the bedroom) where I occasionally pick it up and cuddle it. I'd like to go to the park with Andrew and do a little fashion photo shoot with it, but I'll have to wait until it's no longer parka weather.
But now that I'm done with it, all the interest in writing about it is gone. Don't get me wrong, I love this purse more than I can say. Everything about it is perfect. If I saw it at the store I would buy it and love it forever.
I find it strange that when I finish a project, no matter how well executed or how wonderfully it turns out, it just drops out of my head. Gone. I don't even miss it. While I was working on it, I thought about it all the time, but now I only remember it when I see it on the ironing board.
Are any of you like that, too?
In spite of my post-project amnesia, I love-love-loved having you follow along as I showed you every tiny stitch I made along the way. Even though I'd be crafting regardless, having you here makes it 100 times more fun to make stuff. I definitely want to do the weekly updates for my next big project!
