ok, ok it's only a hello from a fellow blogger, but isn't that the best kind of comment anyway?
thank you 62cherry for stopping by and saying hello...and making me get all excited about this swap !
now, what to make, what to make...too many possibilities...
i'm also signing up for 6 months of re-fashioning, and i'm eagerly planning what my first outfit is going to be. i'm pretty sure it's going to be a dress, since i really don't wear enough of them. and they look so charmingly dressed up and just neat with rolls and curls.
i'm thinking of something similar to these pictures below, so i have some designing and
patternmaking to do until i can actually get to the making part, but isn't that half the fun?
and i must adjust my blocks to be according to my measurements again. my last job had a very tall block (172cm, yiiikes!) so the bust to waist mmt was 18cm!! i know i'm not tall (5'2"), but my bust to waist is 15cm, and Target's standard is 16cm, so i really need to fix that up before i even attempt the pattern. oh well, it's an incentive to actually getting my blocks established and ready so i can make things to sell-a-do.
and in other news...
i started my new job today...woohoo...no more snarky weasel head from having to deal with a couple of ..um...difficult people. the best thing about my new job is that it's more pay for less to actually do and be responsible for, so i can finally, finally, get cracking on making and sewing and crafting this year. (i have been procrastinating just too, too long now). And i really have to say that all you lovely aussie bloggy ladies are very inspiring. not just keeping me motivated to blog on a regular basis ('cause i don't want to be left out of all the fun), but because you are all so damn talented!!! every day i find someone new through link clicking on everyone's faves. my poor, poor overloaded bookmarks tab. oh well, once my laptop is all interneted up later this week, i can have my own bookmarks, all MINE!!!! mwah ha ha ahaaa.
