Progress Update

Hey hey! Life continues to be busy, but this summer will go down in history as being one of the most productive and memorable!

We went camping (finally) on the west side of Michigan (Muskegon) and enjoyed some amusement park roller coasters...

I surprised Little Miss with tickets to the Selena Gomez concert. She was shocked, screamed, and then cried "tears of joy", and we were at the venue an hour later enjoying the show from the packed "cheap seats"! It was a great first concert for her, and I enjoyed it, too!


In the sewing room, I have been busy with paying jobs, mending a dress, embroidering some hats, and making a dress! More on this later...

The chiffon dress is coming along, although I made a mistake by using carbon paper to transfer the markings for the front tucks. You can see the blue marks at the base of each tuck below.


I used some coordinating thread to stitch a tight zig-zag over the lines, and I am happy with the outcome.


Meanwhile, Little Miss has made some "back to school" selections from the pattern and fabric stash, so I am obviously trying to do way more than is humanly possible. I had better get moving...

Ooo, that skirt is so cute. That concert sounded like the perfect introduction. I know someone who made the mistake of taking her 12 year to her first concert, Brittany Spears. Big, big mistake!

Cute skirt. I've not heard of Selena Gomez but your dd looks pretty chuffed.

What blue marks? Unless you directly point to the area, the marks are not visible. =)
