Teenagers are moody. Teenagers are fickle. Teenagers do not always see the intrinsic value in what their mothers make ESPECIALLY if its not for them! Are you following me here? So I have learned that after a day spent at the sewing machine nurturing my latest creation to life, that the wisest course of action is not to ask the teenage photographer to rain on my parade. That is why I have so many flat shots right after a garment is made...so if you've been bearing with me, please bear with me just a little longer...okay!
I have finally figured out a way to get some feet on Lulu...for those of you who've just started reading my blog...Lulu is my dressform. And Lulu lost her legs approximately 3 years ago when I moved to this new place...the movers said that they didn't lose them but since Lulu perplexed them when they placed her in the moving van, I was not surprised her legs went missing....but I digress. I think I have watched enough HGTV to get Lulu legs and during my vacay I am headed off to Home Depot to make this happen...then no more flat pictures against the wall! (Y'all thought I was never gonna tie that one up didn't you! hahahahaha!)
Okay finally to what y'all really wanted to see...
Shoes.....hahahahaha ~ as an aside I am really in a strange mood tonight. Seriously though these are the shoes that I wore with the outfit today.
And finally me:
and again ~ my pensive, reflective side....
last one (a full view with the shoes)...
Ohhhhhh and this is what came on the big brown truck today:
5 yards of black/white plaid wool boucle
6 yards of black wool crepe
4 yards of a beige/black houndstooth linen cotten blend
2 yards of black sandwashed silk
All from the mighty giant
of internet fabric retailers - Fabric Mart!
One last thing and I'm done for the evening...Julie, owner of Timmel Fabrics sponsored a 6 week Summer Contest. Click on the link and you can see the entrants. I think you have to receive her weekly newsletter to vote for a winner, so if you do vote!
More sewing chatter later...
