Thank you so much everyone on your sweet comments Friday for my dress! I learned a painful lesson, which is, late nights don't agree with me anymore. Luckily, I won't have to do this again for a while. Next year mr.louwho (not so luckily) will be deployed - so I won't have to go to the ball. And in 2 years, no one will remember that I wore that dress so I can wear it again. Hopefully by then I'll need to take it in. I'll feel much better about altering something that I made myself. So that means I won't have to make a new dress for 3 years! Whew. Glad I did it. And now I'm ready to do something a little less taxing without a deadline.
Like some little girl's skirts. Or finish up a quilt.
Have you heard about Amy's Challenge she has once a month?
today) she posts the challenge - to focus on one project for the week and link up your finish the following Monday. Make a comment on today's post with your goal and then link up your finish the next Monday! I'm going to figure out what I'm going to do this week and participate! I encourage all of you sew & tellers to join in too. Sew & Tell is going to be on Thanksgiving break this week and will return on December 3. So this is a good challenge to do in the meantime!
About sew & tell and December - I've decided that I really want to enjoy the holidays this year and simplify my commitments. December 3rd will be our last sew & tell until January. I figure most of you will be busy sewing gifts you can't reveal yet or busy with parties, decorating and the other business of the season. Let's all take a little breather and enjoy it. Remembering to step away from our digital tethers and enjoy our families and our friends.
On December 3rd there will be a sponsored giveaway from Randi (a fellow sew & teller) of Fresh Squeezed Fabrics. She's still deciding what to give away but the things she's mentioned already make me wish I could enter. Two words: FABRIC BUNDLE. Two more: NEW LINE. Be sure to comment that day for one entry and link up for another!
And you should know she has a sale that ends today on all Christmas prints! I just ordered Happy Zombies Holiday Happy for some cute Christmas stockings and buntings!
On January 7 we'll resume sew & tell with a Christmas/Holiday gift reveal linky party! You will be able to show off all the sewing you did in December! It will be our normal sew & tell on STEROIDS. Get ready! It will be a good way to pass a dreary January day.
Sew & Tell Schedule:
November 26 (THIS Friday) - No sew & tell
November 30 - Amy's One Thing, One Week Challenge
December 3 - Last sew & tell for 2010 + fabric giveaway
January 7 - December gift sewing sew & tell
I forgot to show you the note I found after pinksuedeshoe, Pink - as I like to call her, posted that lovely and hilarious cartoon rendition of my week. I think it explains my internet 'outage'.
You all are amazing! Thanks for being such loyal, fun bloggy friends! I'm thankful for you all.
