Block 737: July 31, 2015

It’s almost 1pm and I’m still at work. This dental work isn’t gonna stop me! (The Vicodin helps. Really.) It’s also Friday, the last Friday before my shop goes back on contract for next season. Has it really been 10 weeks of summer? Date: July 31, 2015 Crane: 737 Days Spent on Project: 892 Location: … Continue reading

Block 733: July 27, 2015

In one week, the costume shop goes back on contract for the season. I’m simultaneously glad (people in the shop again!) and sad (goodbye easy, low-key summer hours). Back to work. I’m more glad than anything. Date: July 27, 2015 Crane: 733 Days Spent on Project: 888 Location: NW Portland, OR Person I would have … Continue reading

Block 732: July 26, 2015

Getting a late start today since I met some friends for an early brunch this morning. We talked about boys the entire time. We’re all in our mid-30s, with a range of opinions and experiences. Things never seem to change. I realize we were an incredibly obvious Sex and The City cliche. Date: July 26, … Continue reading

Block 731: July 25, 2015

Three cups of coffee into the morning and I think I’ve made the conclusion that I need to buy different coffee next time. Maybe a fourth?

Block 727: July 21, 2015

I didn’t bring The Dog to work today and I’m starting to feel kinda guilty about it. I’m the only one on the second floor here, and I could use some company. Even if it is a snoring Bulldog. Date: July 21, 2015 Crane: 727 Days Spent on Project: 882 Location: NW Portland, OR Person … Continue reading

Block 726: July 20, 2015

I’d like to go back to the beach. Date: July 20, 2015 Crane: 726 Days Spent on Project: 881 Location: NW Portland, OR Person I would have sent it to: TBD Music I listened to while sewing: More of the Shangri-Las. I guess I never realized they were the group who sang “Leader of the … Continue reading

Block 724: July 18, 2015

A little better today; it’s a quarter until 8pm.

Block 723: July 17, 2015

8:30pm and finally doing this. Way to stay on schedule… Date: July 17, 2015 Crane: 723 Days Spent on Project: 878 Location: NW Portland, OR Person I would have sent it to: Well, here we find ourselves at the juncture I knew would happen before I hit 1000 people. After Arkansas, on June 12th, I … Continue reading

Block 721: July 15, 2015

My one year anniversary of moving to Portland, Oregon. Today is an important day. Date: July 15, 2015 Crane: 721 Days Spent on Project: 876 Location: NW Portland, OR Person I would have sent it to: Even though today has a warm place in my heart and I’m feeling incredibly thankful and also introspective about … Continue reading

Block 690: June 14, 2015

Lest you think that, after almost 700 of these Cranes, I can sew them in my sleep, today’s Crane fought me every stitch of the way. Don’t know what was or wasn’t going through my head, but my seam ripper and I became good friends today. Date: June 14, 2015 Crane: 690 Days Spent on … Continue reading
