Coming along...

Yeah, I got a dress done today! But that trip to the post office, let me tell ya! It nearly killed me. It's soooo hot outside! And then they wouldn't let me used the priority tape on my priority package!

Normally, I box it all up before I leave the house, but I didn't have a label, and I wrote the address on the a card that I intended to seal up in the box...and I suppose the moral of the story is, make my own label and just seal up the box before I leave the house. The post office label isn't worth the roll of tape they'll charge me when I get there...and I sure as heck wasn't going to go home for tape. Did I mention the kids weren't behaving very well?

So I don't feel ready to re-open my store to custom orders yet. But I suppose if folks pay via pay pal, and I can click and ship, and never have to step foot in the post office again, that's fine by me.

While I was away...

I came up with a special headband for this turquoise dress I'm making for someone who did me a hugh favor. This is the sort of thing you'll get if you say...safe my life. ;) While this knit in the round dress was an interesting experiment, I'm not sure I'm ready to switch over my methods. The sock cast off didn't work out as smoothly as I would have liked, and while it's fine for this dress, I think my old method is probably better. It just depends on what I'm going for.

And I finally procured some ABU (Air force Battle Uniform) fabric. So this first dress will be for my niece, whose daddy is in the Air force.

Though, I've been sort of sick so these dresses might take a while longer before they're totally complete.

Not for Sale

....but I wanted to show you what I've been working on over the last couple weeks. I've been working on improving my dress pictures so my customers could get more clear, dress focused images.
