I'm not dead nor sick. I'm just having a very busy and very hard time. I haven't sewn a single stitch since October last year. Please bear with me, I'm really not in the right shape for blogging/writing right now and the lack of time is also killing me.
Thank you so much for thinking of me, writing me emails and giving me awards, that does help a lot and it touches me deeply.
I'll do my best and try to post next week. I miss you all.

see, my dear, how many people care about you, and worry about you, from all over the world.
I hope this will give you encouragement in your daily life, because you are a very special lady.
People (and I) have gotten to know you as a very beautiful and special person who makes extraordinary clothes and has been a sewing inspiration to us (me) for such a long time..

Sewing will always be there, it is the thread that holds it all together and never leaves the soul completely. So, I know you'll get back to it when you can. Selfishly, I hope it is sooner rather than later

Hope things are improving for you and that your return is imminent. Yours is my favorite sewing blog, but I know how it is when life intervenes. Your pics remind me so much of the actress, Marisa Tomei (just thought I'd throw that in).
Looking forward to your return.

I keep checking back to see if you have returned to making your incredible creations--sometimes life makes you go another way, however! I have also wondered about your sister who made the gorgeous coat by hand! I hope all is well and that you are enjoying whatever you are doing!
