Peaceful moment

It's winter in Montreal and I couldn't be happier! I love every single minutes that I spend outside: new light, new smells, new noises and new details to photograph! Two days ago, I even enjoyed a walk at -30C but that was a little extreme.

When I'm not walking next to cars stuck in ice/snow, drinking warm cups of tea or listening to music I enjoy the company of my sewing machine. However, as I write these lines I just finished sewing BY HAND my new denim dress lining on the zipper. My teacher says that this is how real seamstresses do it...even if I told him that the sewing machine was fine according to my standards!

Yes, winter is peaceful...for the moment!

Beautiful photos! That dress looks fab from what I can see of it. How are you liking your class? You have made beautiful pieces from it so far! I feel like I should take one so that I can unlearn my bad habits.

The dress is great - the photos too. The -30 C temps remind me of home - though is hasn't gotten that cold in Northern Michigan yet this year.

Your dress is incredible! You want to hear something strange — I enjoy hand sewing. There is something about it I find meditating. Weird. I guess I must like repetitive tasks :).
