Russian designer Ulyana Sergeenko’s Debut collection Fall/Winter 2011/12.
I spent four and a half hours at my sewing machine today. I’m not pleased with my results and will be making a duplicate item tomorrow now that I’m a bit more learned in the ways of sewing from pieces but no pattern.
So I took tomorrow and the next day off of work so I’ll have a five-day stretch off. (Of course, in typical salaried employee fashion, I’ll still be going in for a half hour on Friday to submit my team’s manual commission reports…so dedicated.) As a sloth person I’ve decided to stay home for the majority of my vacation. I have plans that include stripping my 60 cm bid and putting her up for sale, sewing clothes for my Unoa, hemming a dress and two slips of mine, and possibly leaving the house to do a little fabric shopping and visiting my mom.
The last time I took a day off from work was literally in November. I’m really excited. I’m sorry this wasn’t pithy, entertaining, or funny in any way.
“Desperados Under the Eaves” by Warren Zevon
Warren Zevon Wednesday!
It’s been awhile since I did a WZW post, but today I took five classes of high school sophomores to see The Great Gatsby and when we returned my class asked me if people actually used to go into the city to just hang out in a hotel room.
It made me think of this song.
Also, the orchestration in this song is miles above what you usually find in a rock song.
Of course it is - it’s Warren Zevon.
I was sitting in the Hollywood Hawaiian Hotel
I was staring in my empty coffee cup
I was thinking that the gypsy wasn’t lyin’
All the salty margaritas in Los Angeles
I’m gonna drink ‘em up
