The world’s worst move continues and tales from LA
Yes, the world’s worst move continues in all its awful glory:
- AT&T cable/internet/phone service for the home sucks
- The hvac at the new house is haunted or doesn’t work. I’m going with haunted.
- My closet still smells like a body is decaying in some hidden drawer (this after countless deodorizing methods and two weeks of airing out)
- My new iPhone is completely inoperable after two days of trying to activate it. Apple says it’s Verizon’s fault, and Verizon says it’s Apple’s fault. I give up. I guess I will never have a cell phone again.
- I haven’t had time to unpack my sewing room yet.
At least we have hot showers and cooking gas. Maybe I should just move back to NYC and just leave all my belongings behind in San Diego, save for the sewing room and fabric. *sigh*
All this move crap has completely derailed my mojo, even to the point where I have no motivation to set up my sewing room. I’m just feeling too flat to even care. It doesn’t help that I have a tv in my room for the first time ever. I got ensnared in a movie (The American with George Clooney) this morning when I was supposed to be writing this post or unpacking my sewing room.
In other news, I did make it to LA earlier this week. It was a fun, quick trip. I enjoyed seeing my friends Jeanette and Hashi. The LA Textile Show was very cool. Lots of fabric and trim vendors, a couple of notions vendors, and fabric designers. I saw tons of beautiful fabric. I wish I could have bought some, but they only brought samples. So so beautiful. I even saw Matthew from Elliott Berman! So funny. And how fortuitous that I was wearing one of my wrap dresses made from one of his fabrics. It was good to see a bit of NYC after so many months.
Right off the lobby where the show was held, the Korean government secured an exclusive exhibiting space for their textile/trim businesses. They had some great booths.
Alexander Henry had a booth too on the main floor. This fabric caught my eye. 😉
Of course, I couldn’t go to LA without a little bit of fabric shopping, now could I? Hashi, Jeanette and I headed over the Michael Levine Loft and the main store. I picked up this pretty piece from the bins at the loft. It’s a knit, just enough for a peasant top maybe.
I totally copied Hashi buying this cotton floral. How could I not? It’s PURPLE!!!
Just writing about my fabric finds soothes my move-savaged soul. Ahhh.
I hope to get something accomplished in the sewing room this weekend. But I’m not holding my breath. Don’t hold yours either.
