A few random topics

Ýesterday's empty post was about an e-mail I got from BurdaStyle with a survey link which irritated me enormously and I wanted to vent. An hour after publishing I thought it wasn't worth your time reading my venting and removed the text of  the post. In Google Reader (how I still miss it) that was the way to delete the text of a post, as deleting the post made the original still show up in the reader. I was not aware of people reading through RSS feeds still getting the original post and ending up on my blog with an empty post.
That's the reason behind the empty post.

Further I've been sewing the second undie for my daughter, decreased the foot pressure, put something under the end of the foot making the foot not tilt backward at the beginning of a seam and it seemed to help. The fabric didn't get stuck that badly any more. Thank you for all suggestions. It did help a lot. She has worn the set and is very happy with it. Bonnie D: the preformed cups are from Kantje Boord.

What's next? I'm not sure yet. I've been working on lingerie (again, it might get boring) and want to make plans for early fall. Very hot weather is predicted again for the end of the week, so sewing will be on the backburner for a few days, as there is also quite a bit of work to be done.

Till next time, a post with photos probably.

  1. Ha! I just deleted the entire survey in the two places I got it. They aren't listening to me :-/

  3. I'm sorry you pulled the post. I think it was valuable. Melissa at Fehrtrade brought up Burda's insistence that we pay attention to their Webinars. Makes me again consider breaking off my "relationship" with Burda. We do need varying outlooks to help us navigate this stuff. So thanks.

  4. Gee, I had looked forward to a Sigrid rant. Everyone has their own style, you know, and I was wondering what your rant style was. LOL

    I have kept those Burda emails in my inbox, they are tempting me to become very sarcastic and snarky. However, it's hardly worth the time, as you say.

  5. I would have liked to read the rant too. I got the survey, read it over and deleted it. I wasn't impressed.

  6. I missed out on both the rant and the survey. What made it so bad?

  7. Sorry I missed the rant. Your lingerie posts are some of my favorites, they are never boring. In fact, I love all your posts. Never doubt it!

  8. Lingerie is not boring. I'm looking forward to seeing what you're working on.

  9. Lingerie is not boring - I am amazed at how pretty and perfect your projects look! As for the surveys and email from BS, I have a great junk filter on my email account that catches everything I don't want in my inbox. Once a week I scroll through the junk and keep what I need to read!

  10. I was pretty surprised to get several emails from Burda since I asked to be removed from their lists several years ago. So, I understand the desire to rant!

  11. Your lingerie projects are never boring! Looking forward to seeing what you come up with next :)

  12. Lingerie not boring it all! It may be old hat to you, but I am just embarking on the lingerie-learning curve. The more detail the better - vicarious learning has saved me lots of time so far ( hasn't stopped me swing the cups on upside down a few times, though, hmmmmm)

  13. I thought your 'rant' was rather tame and non-insulting. I haven't gotten the email yet, but Burda can be irritating.

    When you sew what you love, and what you want ot wear, it shows through. Its your blog sew and write what you want.
