exorcism


"Never again", you promised me on 04/29/07. You turned 40 that day, remember?

I believed you, and then I married you.

And now look where and how you left me.

I still love you and I probably always will, no matter what, but I cannot forgive what you did to me. It was cruel, it was heartless, it was humiliating. But you've shown those tendencies before. I swallowed the bitter pill and loved you anyway.

I didn't know myself anymore and left him for you. For the last six years I've known that my punishment would come. Now it's here.

I wish you luck and that no one will ever do to you what you did to me.

And nevermind, Adele's "Someone like you" will help me exorcise you.

You can and did break my heart, but you cannot break me.

messenger bag


A few days ago I bought The Uptown Messenger Tote pattern from Yards and Yards, and after getting a pile of fabrics at Ikea yesterday, I immediately had to make one. The instructions are very clear and easy to understand, even for a bag sewing newbie like me. It sews up very quickly, I think I finished it in a little more than an hour (not counting the cutting). Anna even includes a commercial license when you purchase the pattern.
