Another Princess

The first dress I made was too big.  When I saw it, in comparison to Penny in the flesh, I knew that it couldn't be cut down.  A new dress needed to be made from scratch.  Scratch away, on Mon/Tues, toss in a zipper on Wed, and ship!
It arrived today, so I am waiting to hear if it fits.  I hope so, because she needs to wear it tomorrow.  I'm plumb out of time to make it again!

I also made a card last week.  Or was it the week before?  I don't think I posted it yet, so here goes:
It made it to Arizona, and the sea horse didn't break.  I was impressed!  :)

Next on the agenda:  quilt retreat.  I got here 3 hours ago, and have finished one Komforter for Kids.  (guild project)  A second has been flipped, I just need to quilt it.  I'm probably speaking code.  I was given a "sandwich."  My job was to stitch it together and quilt it.  I should be done tonight.  Perhaps in the morning I will post some pictures.

I haven't a clue what my goals are, as I was up to my elbows in princess dresses.  I stuffed my car with projects, thought I might be ready to go...and realized I hadn't packed a suitcase or a sewing machine.  ackk!!

I still haven't found my rotary cutter - I KNOW I packed at least two! - or my pencils or my...yeah.  By the time I find my things and get organized, it will be time to leave.


Anyway, just wanted to let you know I was thinking about you, and that the bestest pinkest dress in CA has made it to its destination.  And that's all I have to say about that.  :)

Relax and enjoy your time sewing with friends. Borrow what you have forgotten!

Reminds me of a time a friend and I went to Glendale Quilt Guild's weekend long show/classes. Said friend carefully packed and toted all of her sewing supplies there but forgot to include her suitcase. Fortunately, I was arriving a day later so grabbed her suitcase from home and brought it with me. So much stuff we require!
