So you’ve all seen this #sewingdares nonsense swooping around the internets, yes? Blame Gillian– it’s alllllll her fault. Well, in my hubris, I dared Oona to finally sew a shirt for Ruggy, which naturally led to me accepting a dare from her. THIS MADWOMAN DARED ME TO LET HER CHOOSE THE FABRIC FOR MY NEXT MOOD SEWING NETWORK PROJECT. Obviously, I don’t back down from a dare, so we set a date and headed to Mood this weekend to decide my fate. But shopping is WAY more fun in a group, so the ridiculously cool Suzanne, Wanett, and Peter joined in on the madness.
As you can see, we had a great time!
We tore through the store laughing, shrieking, and petting bolt after bolt of fabric. I think we terrified all the poor Mood employees! (Thanks for all your help, Kendrell and Eric!)
Oh, and we took LOTS of pictures. After much deliberation, a fabric selection was made (and I’m only a little terrified). I’ll reveal the project next month– hold your breath and WAIT ANXIOUSLY.
After Mood, we popped a squat, had a bite to eat, and chatted for AGES. Friends, I don’t want to make you even more jealous, but these folks are smart, cool, interesting, and FUNNY. I’m so grateful to have met such a great group of peeps.
To summarize: A) it was the best day EVER. B) I’m a little scared to make the Oona Dress of Doom And/Or Destiny. PRAY FOR ME. C) If you’re ever in NYC, for the love of all that’s holy, schedule a meetup, dood!
