So, what does a girl do on her birthday? Anything she wants! LOL
I spent the evening sewing up a muslin for Taylor’s costume.
Even though I have a few more projects that I would like to squeeze in, I decided that it’s time I get to work on Taylor’s Halloween costume.
Arr scallywags, September 19th is International Talk Like A Pirate Day (oddly enough, one of the creators of Talk Like a Pirate Day was the featured family on ABC’s Wife Swap). Every year, we try to get Taylor to go along with this, but she refuses. Blimey! So, if you’re looking for a quick costume to celebrate the date, here’s some freebies (sewing and kitting patterns) for you:
The weekend really flew by – my mother-in-law visited and attended Taylor’s Grandparent’s Day luncheon, we took Taylor to see Raven Symone in concert (she loved the concert and has barely taken off her concert t-shirt), we went suit shopping for Bret, cleaned the house and did yard work.
Suprises in the mail are wonderful – and yesterday, my mailbox was chock full of suprises!
For those of you who are fans of Bravo’s reality series, Project Runway, the designer’s, final four designer’s collections at New York magazine online. Since some of you that visit this site from other countries that haven’t started running season 3 yet, I’m omitting the names so I don’t give away any spoilers:
Wow, it’s hard to believe, but I have been ‘collecting’ fabrics for Taylor’s costume for a little over a month. Last night, I picked up the final piece – some white satin for the contrast inset (that will lay under the off white lace that I already purchased).
Inspired by Project Runway’s late night sewing (they get until midnight to complete their garments), I decided give myself the challenge to finish (or at least get close to it) my Kwik Sew batwing top. Little did I know how fast this baby would sew up!
The countdown to Halloween sewing has begun and I’m attempting to cram a few more projects in before I get started.
