No Pants Day 7


Well can't see my tights as well but at least I didn't cut off my head in this one. ;)
Dress made by my friend Pinky No one wanted it so I got it :) She also made yesterday's dress. I found the fabric and commissioned her to make it for me. Perhaps one day I'll get my sewing machine working and I'll make my own? I still have memories of making the rounded duffel bag in 8th grade :p

Today is the full moon so here's my WIPocalypse

Rivalry by Dimensions wow it looks like I lucked out. I went and found the site link figuring that was easier than trying to track down the picture I took of the front, it's no longer made. Considering I've been stitching on it for 2 Christmases now and I got it on clearance? I'm not surprised. Let see I know I bought it in FL when I was down for Christmas and I had finished what I was working on. Oh I think it has been 3 Xmas because last year I was watching Dr. Who Christmas special and remembering that I had bought it the one before :p It will get done one day. I seem to stitch it during hockey season and when Penguins got knocked out of the playoffs I stopped stitching on it.

Next is Dolly Mama Best Stressed

I stitched her arm, sign and hair while in the car today.  We went out to Franklin for the Gun Show and found a grip for my Kahr CW9 so hopefully next time I take it to the range it doesn't give me a callous.   Then we went to Archivers.  Well I went to Archivers my husband and BiL stayed in the car watching TV or playing games on their tablets while I went in and tried not to buy all the Tim Holt's stuff!  I did well there.  I only got black foam dots and a quilling comb. Now I can learn spruer. I think that's what it is called I found this blog if you scroll down and look at the butterfly I think the tool can help with that. I couldn't find a picture of the angel wings I had seen and you can do other stuff with the comb too.   I do too many crafty things, why do I want to sew again?  It'll probably be like when I tried to learn crochet again and decided that was one too many hobbies.

Of course my saving money didn't work when we went to Whole Foods.  I saw a CD on check out and had to get it.  (Darn marketers putting stuff like that up at the registers) But can't blame the marketers I think I would have been mad if I had been told Hugh Laurie put out a CD of New Orleans Blues called Let Them Talk and I didn't have a place to get it.  Of course I just saw it came out in May, I could have had it as a b-day present.  Ah well better late than never.  OH crap I think I see my next B-day present.  I was looking over the website and there's a special edition with 4 more songs and a DVD. ;)

Dolly Mamas are awesome. :) I stitched Big Girl Panties onto a long-sleeved t-shirt a couple of years ago and it always draws positive responses!

Well done on your progress, it'll be great to see how your Dimensions piece comes out.

Great progress in your WIPs. Can't wait to see what the first piece turns out to look like! I love Archivers and Tim Holtz too. Now you've got me wanting to work a bit on some scrapbooking!

Lynn said...

Good work on your WIP! The ladies I stitch with each week gave me a Dolly Mama kit this year. They're so cute!

Cathy said...

Nice progress! Love the idea of no pants days. Do you live somewhere warm?

Melissa said...

Love both you projects! Like the idea of the no pants days too.

The dress is beautiful ... I wish I could sew ... but is one craft my mum never got around to teaching me when I was a child. She was scared I'd brake her sewing machine ... she had a word for me 'disaster'.

So sweet your dress.
I admire the people who can make their cloths
Love your Xmas project.

Your WIPs are coming on nicely. Just couldn't manage the No Pants thing - though I have just bought a new going out dress in the sales.

Your WIPS looks fantastic, great progress! Your dress is very pretty! I also like the Dolly Mamas patterns and sayings, they fit my sarcastic sense of humor pretty well :)

Great progress on the WIPs! I'm sorry I'm late in checking in on your blog (and thank you for the lovely comments you've made on my posts).

You're much more daring than me with the no pants. Perhaps it's because winters here in New England are just a bit too painful for me (and I don't react well to stockings normally).

Happy stitching!
