It does not pay to wait until the last minute.

Yesterday I decided that I needed a dress to wear, today. I did make the dress but I was not happy with it.

I designed a shift dress with ruffles around the collar.




I hated the ruffle. It did not lay the way I wanted it to. Because the fabric was really too thick for the type of soft ruffle effect that I wanted. So I removed the ruffle that I put on. I searched through my stash of fabric and of course I did not have the right type of fabric in the right color.

When I removed the ruffle I stretched the neckline in the front of the dress so I need to make some more adjustments to it.





When you wear a jacket with it no one can see the mistakes or the dress. So once I have fixed it to look the way it really should I will post it correctly.

It does not pay to wait until the last minute.

In the evening I have been crocheting Tri-Color squares for the guest bedroom. Two shades of blue the other color is white. I have so much yarn its time for me to start creating afghans to use it all up.

I starting connecting the squares as I go along. There will be 10 squares in each row. This row is almost done. 2 more squares to go.



After I complete this row I will start sizing my Motif for the Motif Afghan features in the Crochet Along on the Lion Brand Notebook blog. This time I will start and finish it. and not wait until the last minute.

My sister does not have a computer. I kept telling her that the Little Designers are going to need it for school work. But she did not get the computer dispite several great sales last Christmas time.

One of the Little Designers is now enrolled in a performing arts school. I was teasing my sister and told her that soon she will be bringing home a note saying she needs a laptop computer. She laugh it off.

Friday the Little Designer brought home the note, She needs a laptop for school starting monday. I thought it was funny. My sister was not so amused. So all the Aunts are pitching in to get her a laptop. I still think it funny. It does not pay to wait until the last minute. If anything it cost more!

It *is* amusing, though she won't admit it. Thanks for sharing that.

I like the granny squares you are making, too. :)

S Sew Together Session  May 27, 28!
It's great when you are with friends of like mind who love the same things you do.  Well this weekend time to capitalize on that idea.
Time to Sew Together!!
I sent out the invites actually it was a series of text and phone calls and created a buzz for myself that is very uplifting!  I am so excited. 
The way I have envision this;  everyone will come over about 6 to 7 people and bring what ever project they are working on and sew in the same room together.  I just love this idea!   
JN is going to make a apron for her make up job.  She was asked to do the make for the  brothers who will be on screen at our Regional Convention!  I am so happy for her.   AA will be making curtains she is getting things ready  for her redecorating month. She said for us not to look for her in June because that is the time she set aside to redecorate her house and curtains are a big part of it.

The Sewing Machine were in place and supplies are available just waiting for the people to arrive. 

I am very happy to have ventured out of my comfort zone it was very empowering to accomplish this!  

Our Mentors were working on sewing project while helping others ! 


Some who are learning were happy and frustrated.  Lining the top of the dress can be a challenge but she conquered it! 

I cannot wait to see the finish projects of all those who took advantage of the event to start a project.  

First time at a sewing machine and so eager to see the finish result!

Life in a Scheduling Room

It has been some time since I felt it necessary to say anything about my job.  However this is something that i need to address at this time.  My work associates range in ages and this diversity helps our department funtion in an ackward yet somewhat effective way.  One coworker who is very verbal about everything that goes wrong.  You know when she is not well because she is quiet and there are times when she is very focus on what she is doing and if that concentration is broken so is her silence.  For the most part this does not bother me except when she takes me out of my zone and then my work rhythm is interrupted.   I am sure i am guilty of doing the same to her i think everyone does.  Then there is next coworker a beautiful young lady that gives the impression of being younger than she actually is and so I have a tendency to feel like  need  to protect her.  That is something I had to stop doing it was not needed and i hope I did not offend her.  Her method working is not as pr…
