What other dungeon is so dark as one's own heart!

Where have I been?
What am I doing?
I've been in my sewing dungeon, trying to finish this coat for the past 3 months...

Life has been hard in the dungeon...
eating whatever morsels I can find (Mice mostly)
Lack of sunlight for my brittle bones
 looking (And smelling I might add) like a raggedy pirate woman...

But its all over now, I can start to live again.

The coat amongst the apocalypric ruins that once was my sewing room...

More photos to come... after I shower...

What other dungeon is so dark as one's own heart! What jailer so inexorable as one's self! - Nathaniel Hawthorne


  1. Oh, but it's gorgeous! And you emerged from your dungeon, with a warm coat, just in time for the coldest part of winter! I can't wait to see it on. Lovely job.

  2. If you had to spend a year more in the dungeon, it is worth the beauty of this coat. I hope you'll post a picture of you wearing it. Simply gorgeous!

  3. It is amazing. I'd love to see it on you.

  4. Look really great! I would like to see more pictures

  5. Beautiful. Such a great sillouette. It looks really professional too.

  6. Beautiful, I sewed a coat last year that made me feel like I had been working for months in a dungeon. I can tell you a year later, IT WAS TOTALLY WORTH IT! I love my coat and wear it all the time, and looking at the beauty of yours I think you will too.

  7. Can't wait to read more!

    Your "in progress" self-portrait made me laugh. :)

  8. Sooooooooo..... what ELSE have you been doing ???!!!??? HMMMMMMM!!!????

  9. That's a beautiful coat! Gorgeous work there! :D Hehe raggedy pirate woman looks like a great Halloween get up though!

  10. Amazing! And I love that quote at the end. Truly no place is so dark, no torturer so cruel, as one's own self.
