I made this necklace for a friend who is on Team Edward. I'm a HUGE Twilight fan (the books, so far NOT the movies) but I’m a Team Jacob girl. Sure, Edward and Bella are perfect for each other blah, blah, blah but he left and I automatically joined Team Jacob. I have finally completed my flannel dress! Yeah! I was so nervous to use the material and end up with a finished product that I hated. Then I thought to myself, "Self, you can always go buy more, duh!" So I made a pattern from another dress that I had that looked simple (WRONG! I was so confused when I tried to sew the liner to the neck and armholes. There was a lot of seam ripping going on) Eventually, spatial relations clicked in my head and I was able to work it out. The pattern wasn’t perfect and I ended up with some wonky pouching on the sides, so I made these nifty little button on strips and voila! Awesomeness! It’s my new favorite dress and I made it! Gotta love it when a plan comes together :)
I think I'm going through a quarter life crisis. Things just feel off. I do realize that it could be partly because I am unemployed. I’m having a great time hanging out at home with my boys and making stuff but all of a sudden I’ve been hit with a surge of surreal strangeness. It’s hard to put in words. I think maybe I’m ready for a change, or many changes. So to start things off I dyed my hair black. Ha! I’m not kidding… it’s really, really, really black.
