Shorts and Shops...

Hi Everyone,

David is back and it is good :)

29th Oct 09

And because David is back, I get presents! Most of the time I can be rather vague when asked what I might want in terms of presents from people, but this time, all I wanted was strange sugary things from afar, and that is exactly what I got:


Yum. That meant yesterday I spent the better half of the day eating sugar, which is completely fine with me by the way.

Tomorrow night is date night which means dinner and a movie, yay. And because I chose last time, he gets to choose this time, so we are going to see
The Surrogates and I'm looking forward to it. A good bit of action never hurt anyone...

Also, I got sent a lovely message via Etsy today saying congratulations for having my red skirt featured on Etsy Finds. I had no idea, so started searching but never found anything - can you find it? I'd love to link it because its pretty darn exciting being featured in an Etsy finds post. I was searching in their blog, but perhaps its somewhere else?


Edited to add - David just found it for me, Thanks hun, its HERE!


And speaking of shops, I will have an update next week and I wanted to show you the dress I just finished making for a lovely lady. She emailed me with a photo, asked if I could do it, I said yes and away we went.

Dress

I won't lie and tell you that the pleats didn't kill me a little, but I love the way they turned out and am thinking of adding a pleated style skirt to the shop some time soon, so keep your eyes peeled.

  10. Ooo, all that candy looks delicious. It's so fun to get candy from other places that isn't available where you live! Enjoy the sweets. Cute outfit, I love those shorts.

  11. I'm always so jealous of those girls that can wear shorts. I'm a skirt and dress person myself...but you look oh-so-cute!

  14. You are too cute! :D Sugary souvenirs are always my favorite sort... I'm sadly addicted to several foreign goodies that I can't easily get here. ;) Every time we go to Epcot, I always hit up the big store in Japan to stock up on Japanese candy! Thankfully, though, the commissary (grocery store) on base has a goodly assortment of European chocolate and candies; although they still don't seem to have my beloved Flake bars... *sigh*

    That dress is far too, too lovely!!! I adore the pleated skirt--it is quite a feat to wrangle pleats (I tend to *ahem* avoid them myself), so bravo on tackling them! :)

  22. Congratulations on the Etsy feature - that is wonderful! The dress you made is gorgeous - the pleats look like they will be worth all the effort. I hope that the woman who receives the dress will send you a picture so you can see how it looks on her, too!
