Been off line all week,no tatting to show, but I did want
to tell Fox thank you, I got my package
and it is beautiful!!! I have to take pictures and
post pictures of the beautiful little piece of tatting
she sent me! It really is very very pretty. I am
actually putting it in one of 3 frames I have
and putting it on the wall with 2 of my pieces :)
The reason I have not been here all week is I have been
busy busy busy sewing, I have so far made 3 new dresses,
well, 1 from scratch and altered 2 others, and I
have fabric to make 2 more from scratch, and plans of
altering 3 others. I am shortening some hems, taking in seams
updating some... going through closets, taking out winter
clothes, clothes that don't fit, I don't wear, etc.
It is just too expensive to buy a whole new wardrobe, so
I am making one, lol
I got the lace attached to my new blouse and finished
that project, and am so tickled with it, and
making my clothes to fit, they look so much better
on me than just hanging or bunching up too.
I always have to alter the patterns though, lol
I have to make a size 16 for the (boobage) area, and
then take the rest of the pattern in back down to
a size 8-10 . Which, anyone who wears dresses
knows, you just don't get that sort of custom fit buying
off the rack in the store :D
Now I don't look like I am always wearing a skirt and a
tucked in shirt, or the top is super tight and I am
squishing myself or duct-taped myself to fit in....
hate that. Yet, I really like dresses.
So, there we have it, no tatting, but busy sewing.
and just so we don't leave without a picture today,
I will share one from my stash :D
A picture of my husband and I, I look chunky, please don't be too harsh :)
