The T-mobile commercial just cheeses me off. How on earth could you possibly have 11 bulldogs all named Steve in 38 years. I did the math, it's either not possible or extraordinarily cruel. Ugh, TV, That's just what I get.
O.K. I've been a bad friend and a bad blogger. I've been incommunicado for quite some time. I have all kinds of excuses, I've been on ritalin, my blood sugar is highish, I've been sleeping a bunch and eating really weirdly. That said, I hate excuses. I'm off Ritalin and feeling normal again and ready to blather on about whatever I find.
MaryBeth of The Stitchery made a whole bunch of cool pants just recently, you really should see her work, she's one talented lady, and she's a super awesome person to boot. Anyway, she not only made all these cool things but she nominated me for the Kreativ Blogger Award. She's so sweet to do such a a thing. I don't know if I deserve it but I'll try to live up to it. Once it's out, you've got to live up to it, right??? Right!! Love to you MaryBeth, MWAH!
On the sewing front, I've made myself a fabu little dress from this great fabric. The funny thing is, I made all these pattern alterations based on what I thought I needed to do and of course, I made horrible alterations and the dress was way, way too big. I wore it out to dinner already and of course, I spilled food on it. I decided to take it apart and re-engineer the whole thing. It's still a little too big and I don't really like the neckline (it's too wide) but I used fold over elastic. OMG!!!! I love FOE, it's the best thing ever (that and hyperbole)!!!!
I think the first version looks a little too matronly, and it's tied so tight due to the fact that it was much too big. On the second version I shortened the waist so that it is much higher as it is supposed to be. I cut off at what I wanted to be the finished length because I'm still too punk rock to hem. I like the dress it's a Butterick pattern, I do not like the neckline on this pattern which is why I lowered it a bit but it was also too wide and I didn't realize that when cutting out. I think I'm going to make this same style again but I intend to use this Vogue pattern, I'll be raising the neckline on that but I think that style may work well, or not, whatever. Currently, I am working on this dress right now from the Lost City of Atantis jersey and I think it's pretty good, I'm going to have to get extra creative with the neckline because if I show that much cleaveage, I'll get arrested. So far, I think it's really pretty. I hoping to finish it to wear to dinner with my girls Friday night. Wish me luck!
On the store front, I got in a whole bunch of new knits. They've been up for a while and we're in the middle of a sale. I want to go back fairly soon and get more knits and cottons. I'm going to have to make nicey with Louie so he'll let me stay with him and of course I'm waiting for the snow to melt. The worst is slogging around Manhattan in a snowstorm.
Anyway, that's what's up with me, what's up with you?
