And in other news, I'm still looking for the "perfect dress". Once I find it, I'll be able to make a couple of them from the dress so that I'll have more then just one for my wardrobe. I'm excited to start using my sewing machine again.
And John. My sweet, sweet, loving John. I love him. I DO. I wish I were already in Texas with him. He filled out an application for an apartment. I hope he gets it. He said it sounds like it's a done deal, but really.. It's never DONE until the contract is signed. I haven't read the best online reviews of the place, but it's better then a cardboard box (although I'd live in a box with him if it meant I'm able to be near him always). I'm currently in the process of making him a secret present for his birthday. It'll be around his birthday when he comes up to get me for the BIG MOVE. I want to use what I'm making to wrap up a much larger, more expensive present. I hope he likes it. Hell, he better, after all the work I'm putting into it.
Swap-Bot has some pretty great swaps. I signed up for a Mug! Mug! Mug! swap and ended up with a very cute mug, home-made chai tea, hazelnut coffee and tons of Japanese candy (because it IS my favorite kind of candy). I'm so veryvery excited. Almost all the candy is gone already. Oops. I'll have pictures when I get the time to re-size and upload them. =]
I'm a semi-content person right now. And this makes me happy.
Ok, and seriously, this fabric store
completely rocks my socks. The 60s & 70s, Japanese Import and the traditional japanese fabrics are my favs so far.
I really need to do something exciting with my life. All I do is work, crochet, sleep, work, crochet, work, work, work, sleep. So, I decided it was time to change it up a bit. I enrolled in a seamstress/dressmaking course online. I got my package of study materials the other day. I can't wait to dig in, but I need to finish two bags I have that are being sold to a friend of mine/co-worker. I've also come up with this great crocheted top. I'm sketching out details even though I can't draw worth crap. Also, seeing as it's been decided by the fiber gods that I can't spin yarn, I'm using my very beautiful roving to make felt fabric. It's easy. And it's be fun to embellish and sell as a "Private Collection".
