Still no Internet

Hi everyone,
After 2 months I still don't have a connection at home... My service provider keeps messing up in various ways. This was supposed to take a week. I keep postponing posting because every day they are telling me it is just a matter of hours before I get a connection... I need the Internet for my work, too, so it's been a nightmare.

Now on the upside, being shut up from the online world means I've been sewing a lot. A lot!
I have a backlog of projects to share... Hopefully soon. I just don't feel like spending hours in a noisy café and on an unsecure Wifi connection to update my blog, but I've written up a few articles offline so they'll be going up as soon as I'm hooked up at home.

Things are good here and I am very excited with my new job. As for my new hometown - I am simply enamoured with it.

I hope this finds you all well and cheerful, and that the start of fall has been inspiring you in your creation. I miss you all!

A friend of mine had to first get a France Telecom line put in, then establish her free onnection, then cancel the FT. A nightmare. But she didn't have the previous phone number, and it took months with no result.
But hey, a plug and a sewing machine plugged into it is very good :-).

It's wonderful to hear an update! I'm so happy for you, that the new town is so wonderful! I hope P'tite Mignonne finds it so, too!

Isabelle, I just discovered your blog yesterday. I've had great joy reading and scanning through it. Your love of needlework is heartwarming. I've never owned a sewing machine,therefore I've had to learn to do many projects by hand. (I've never tried clothing...only crafts.) You inspire me to follow through with one of my dreams, to buy and learn to use a sewing machine. Hopefully I'll get down to doing that this coming year. I've longed to make clothing, and draperies.
Oh...I'm a cat lover too! We have a tuxedo (long hair/black and white) and a brown/gray tabby in our family. There's also a yellow Lab in the house. :) Sorry if I have rambled. I feel as if I know you after reading your blog.
Wishing you the very best.

Dear Isabelle,
This must be real telepathy or you might think I am just saying it but oh my goodness I was thinking of you last weekend as one of my friend went to your hometown for a conference and here you post. So you know my friend I miss your posts and am so glad to hear some news from you. I also am happy to hear that upbeat tone in your post and that you are enjoying your new job very much and the lovely town as well. Hope you get your internet soon and we are able to communicate more often.

Heureuse d'avoir de tes nouvelles, tu verras Montpellier est une ville formidable (j'y ai été pendant le lycée et la prépa)

la plage n'est pas loin, tu peux y aller en bus et septembre est l'une des meilleures périodes (moins de touristes et une eau encore chaude)

Bon courage pour la suite :) j'ai hâte de voir ce que tu as pu coudre

Je t'envie car je n'ai plus le temps de me mettre devant la machine.. je suis dans les cartons je déménage dans 2 semaines pour Toulouse.

I really liked seeing your is really attractive. Lovely work. I think I would be afraid of all those curves.

Hi Isabelle,
Pacific Fabrics linked your blog. I work in sustainable fashion and wondered if you ever considered applying your talent to a recyCouture (refashion with handwork etc.) project.
I started the fashionRIP Project here in Seattle WA USA and am interested in growing awareness one stitch, one note, one line one chapter at a time!
or check out "Species on the Verge" video on youtube all feature recycouture garments.
thanks and hope you get your internet soon.

I saw the movie The September Issue on Friday and Anna Wintour wears a lot of dresses that look like the New Look 6643 pattern with a slim belt tied around her waist. I know you love that pattern, so tell us what you think if you see the movie.

Hope everything is going well with you.
