at dinner last night, not only did we all order the same thing, but the waiter was forced to bring three extra glasses of wine to compensate for the two that ann spilled all over me.
that’s a pretty good night, right? (as peter said, “i guess we know who the gesticulators are at this table!”)
AND there was the biggest piece of chocolate cake i’ve ever seen in my life.
instigated by ann, clio, peter, ann, rosie, marina and i all met up at a cafe in the garment district. (where, i should mention, i stopped at mood on the way. so much for trying to buy less fabric in 2013!) and i come away once again amazed at how easy it is to spend half the night laughing with people i don’t necessarily “know” when we all share a common passion in sewing (and, to a lesser extent, blogging, styling, and being creative in general).
i have to admit that i’ve really come to treasure these chances to meet up with fellow enthusiasts and hope that 2013 has as many of them as possible. i’m fortunate to have a very robust local community of great bloggers (and great people) and look forward to more chances to spend time arguing over everything from project runway to the pros and cons of the new paron’s space, not to mention a shared love of white featherweights and a detailed commentary on the (awesome) aesthetics of clio’s stunning red slip photo shoot.
yesterday had one more milestone for me that i am super stoked about…
…a clean slate. more on that later.
