Want A Peek?




This is where I left off yesterday with "The Dress". Currently, it's all just pinned to the dress form because I was anxious to see it coming together. Sadly half way through making the skirt I ran out of tulle and I had to run back out to JA last night to get 12 more yards! Yes, and that's after I had already added 12 yards of the stuff. That's 24 yards of tulle on this one!!! I have to say for those of you are anxious to make this dress. You have been warned. This one does require a lot of patience and time. You will certainly not whip this one up in 2 hours, but the end result is looking like it may be worth the extra time and effort. What do you think???

Oh, btw when Abby saw this one on the dress form she was almost rendered speechless...and for Abby, that's HUGE!!!! When she finally did say something this is what came out of her mouth. "Mommy, this is the most beautiful dress you have ever made me and I LOVE it! When can we go and take pictures?" Keep in mind not ten minutes earlier she was outside digging in the dirt with Henry and came inside with a baby slug announcing that it was just the cutest thing she had ever seen. That child do not discriminate and truly loves ALL, and I do mean ALL living things! I have a great story to share with you about that, but I will save that for another day.
