Live Creatively

PR Weekend and more…

I am notorious for not updating my blog. Its not that I don’t want to. It’s just that I don’t give it the priority I should. May was really busy too with the PR Weekend, and then the PatternReview book and now that summer’s here (sort of), I am busy working in my garden. So I’ll try to make this short. I really don’t want to go into the newsletter mode I generally do when I write the PatternReview newsletter 🙂

So this is what I’ve been up to in the last month or so.

May 15th – 17th
PR Weekend Portland

Highlights for ME
Meeting so many of you, I spend hours every day with.

Chatting with old friends from previous PR Weekends

Getting hooked on to NAIL POLISH!

making a lot of new friends

And having a blast in the school bus.

Seriously, one shouldn’t be allowed to have this much fun. I’ve written a more detailed report on PatternReview, so you can read it here.

Fun with my Niece
May 17th – 20th I was in San Jose, CA to spend some time with my cousin and my favorite (only) niece. Anusha, my 5 yo niece reminds me so much of myself when I was little. Not that I remember my childhood but I do remember being full of energy, vivacious and a handful and she is just like that. Whenever I go there, we have a ball. I shared my love of nail polish with her. She is only FIVE but she loved it. Cidell gave me this really cool blue nail polish.

So that’s May for ya. In June, I got busy with my garden. And it doesn’t look half bad, if I may say so myself. I’d better drop my gym membership. Its been months since I went and I’d rather spend time gardening than go to the gym. Actually I’d rather do anything than go to the gym 😦

My Garden Photos

On the sewing front, I haven’t made much progress since the skirt I sewed for PR Weekend which was worth every second I spent on it. I SIMPLY LOVE IT. This is also my May garment for One a Month Sew Along.

My Review Burda 8407 on PatternReview.com

On the sewing machine is another quick skirt from Kwik Sew 3032 and I am planning to make the Jalie Pants after that.

I must now go back to browsing more nail polish colors. I just can’t get enough of it. Thanks to Cidell!
