Sewing · Weight Loss


Hi there,

It’s been a whirlwind of a month.

As of today, I have a new job, my company was bought out by Morningstar and we are all moving over there. It’s super exciting but it is a big change. I will have to learn about all the new systems and meet some new people. Other than that it’s still the same product we are working on so at least that doesn’t change.

The other big change is, of course, the pandemic. It’s the end of week 3 WFH and oh man it’s tough. I like working from home on occasion but doing it for weeks on end is hard. I am very fortunate in that my job can function pretty much as normal in this situation. I really feel for all the people who have lost their employment in these trying times.

Because I have been under so much stress my eating plan has kinda gone out the window. I have been binging and I feel awful about it. I know emotional eating is normal at a time like this but it feels like false comfort. I know my weight is up and I just don’t want to think about it.

In sewing, I have got 2 things done at the beginning of the pandemic.


This Burdastyle top from the March 2020 issue. It’s really fun.


Also a Blackwood cardigan from Helen’s Closet. Such a comfy sweater, really snuggly.

Right now I am working on a skirt from the most recent issue of Ottobre. I’ve been doing a lot of hand sewing on that. On all the gathered tiers I am hand felling the seam so it’s taking some time. It’s been hard to work up the energy to sew with all this stress, today I am going to sew up some masks with my Mom.

Stay safe everyone.
