I’m back! Did you miss me? (tumbleweeds…).
I had the BEST holiday. I totally failed at updating this blog, or even documenting outfits for the Self-Stitched-September Flickr group, but I was too busy trying out different American snacks, cruising mountain roads while giving unwanted driving tips to my boyfriend, and taking 700 photos (which seem to be mainly of fried food and the camouflage aisle at Walmart).
Coming home was not so fun. I have an intense case of post-holiday blues and unemployment woes. The charity I work for is shutting down due to a lack of funding, so this time next week I’ll be back knocking on the door of Dalston Jobcentre.
At least I’ll have lots of time for sewing. Last summer I was unemployed and so stressed that I spent the whole time chewing my nails, googling unlikely jobs, and eating whole packets of chocolate digestives. This time I plan on being extremely zen about the whole thing and using it as a chance to sew and get stuff done around the house (this may or not actually happen).
Anyway here are some photos of our holiday, which has left me considerably poorer, fatter and more sunburnt. It was definitely worth it though.
