I have been sewing some clothes over the last couple of weeks. We are going out next Saturday night, and I have made a dress for my s/daughter to wear. It's a halter neck, and comes to the knee. She has not seen it yet and I think she will like it very much. I stitched some lace around the bottom of the bodice, and then beaded around the lace with red glass seed beads. I am making her a wine red shall to go with it.
Now I need to get on with my dress. I have cut one out, and sewn most of it, but it looks too casual. I have started another one, but didn't look at the pattern well, and I would not be able to wear a bra with it, I don't think that will work at all. I will keep going, and see if I can add a piece in the back, but not likely...........Bugger! Posted by Picasa

Pre-occupied, or over-occupied

Hi All

Where have I been, well really, where haven't I been, not too far from home, but tooo busy. In a great way.

I have been quilting for some clients, also doing some sewing of clothes. I was never very good at this, in my opinion, though others said otherwise, but I am very happy with what I have done so far.

I bought I great pattern, which I have made out of calico, so I could work out adjustments, which are always ALOT! But funny thing, only a slight change in the side seams, and it fits! SHOCK HORROR!

I will posts pics soon, it's dark outside, and the camera is in the studio. I am not a fan of the dark, my friends.

So I will head into the city to look at fabrics for my dress, and then get sewing some more. I am very excited. The dress is for the closing night of Dusty, the musical, in two weeks.

School holidays start next week. I have lots planned, you see I am also in training, for what you ask, well wait for it, A TRIATHLON! WHAT! Yepp. My daughter has chosen that sport for school, and so I figured, I am getting quite fit now, and so I am going to do the triathlon with her, I am very excited, and looking forward to it. I went to Craig's personal trainer today, and he has set up a program for me to work on for the next eight weeks and beyond, until the first race, so lookout Melbourne. It could be very scary! I am going to set up a blog, with my daily training on it, eekkkk.
