I just wanted to pop in and say hello before I disappear again for a few weeks. I’m currently taking a break from attempting to pack everything I own into my tiny Camry, which I’m going to be driving up to northern California tomorrow. Then next Tuesday I’m hopping on a plane to fly to London and then Montpeller, France! I’ll be over there until about a week after the New Year so don’t think I’ve died if I don’t write for another month.

Sadly, this means my latest bout of costume inspiration has to be put on hold, but do expect a lot of Deathly Hallows costumes to be popping up on here soon. Moving back into a cold-weather-zone (yes, I realize that 40 F is nothing to complain about but I’ve been living in San Diego for five years!) has caused a sort of obsession to own Hermione’s entire wardrobe. I’m even dying to teach myself how to knit a Fair Isle sweater so I can make that gorgeous gray hoodie cardigan she wears. And don’t even get me started on the red dress.

Yup, movies are dangerous.

Anyway, I haven’t done much sewing lately because I started packing, which meant all of my sewing supplies were put in boxes, which for some reason makes it difficult to sew.

And now, back to packing..
