CC's dress turned out so nice, and it looks amazing on her! I can't post pictures yet because she hasn't worn it, but as soon as I can, I'll show some. I just didn't want to steal her thunder!

I have another sewing job lined's going to be an ongoing thing. Little nervous about that one, but I think it's going to be ok. Not mention all the little sewing things for the store that I have to do! I have to hem (for a customer) this huge 50s Mexican circle skirt that won't be hard, just time-consuming. I need to send out eBay invoices too. Get that stuff packed up and gone. I want to spend a little of what I made recently on a new/new to me sewing machine that does buttonholes by itself...I love my old machine and it works fine, but it doesn't do buttonholes. I have the attachment to do them but it is clumsy and weird and doesn't work that well. I just don't know if I want to go the electronic route because I have heard they are harder to fix. I see a trip to 35th Avenue Sew and Vac in my future to look at machines....and oh, that's right, they have a fabric section in the back, gee, I'll just have to mosey on back there and take a wee peek at fabric. :-D

I also need a new iron. I want a really good Rowenta or the Oreck steam iron. I want the burlesque girl fabric at, and I want a whole week where I don't have to do anything but sew. I am feeling the need to create on a large scale!

But, I have the rest of the April weekends all worked out with Dan so on the 24th we can go see the Jump Back Brothers and the 25th to see Bad News Blues. That will be a great weekend! I am so happy that my Daddy is free to do things again. I didn't realize until this weekend in Jerome truly how much I have missed that the last 8 months.

I have plans for a Chippie Reunion lunch and the Hotel San Carlos Slumber Party. This WILL happen this year. I am determined!

  1. I was contemplating getting that burlesque fabric, as well (the blonde one)... but I have a feeling I might be seeing it everywhere!
    I need to find some proper rayon blend Hawaiian fabric... so hard to find!
