State of Project Minima II

artwork by Louise Tidd
6-month status report on Project Minima:    Approximately 65 pieces completed.  Joined Refashion Coop, contributing twice a month since October.  Starting Sewing Rebellion Chicago Chapter in January, to meet monthly.  Re-organized work space.  Received 2 sewing/ design books:  I Am Cute Dresses by Sato Watanabe and Design-It-Yourself Clothes by Cal Patch, pouring over them constantly. 

Started wearing my jewelry again (unearthed it from storage) as part of my ensembles.  Also mixing it up by wearing shoes and boots from the back of the closet to go with different "outfits."  Having fun dressing up!  Enjoying the unexpected, going for what works, not blanketly taking what is, as is...

I love not buying anything.  I'm psyched about sewing, repairing, re-making, re-fitting & re-designing.  Sew be it, in deed.
