Evening in the Country...

Evening in the Country...
...a gorgeous view of the WV mountains I get to enjoy everyday. Also the place Bri proposed earlier this year! [Not taken on that day.]

I cannot believe the weekend is almost over! And I wish I had not slept my Saturday away! I also messed up some of my assignments for class - whoops! We did pick-up a coffee maker by Mr. Coffee at Lowe's. It is real snazzy in stainless steel with a delay, brew strength, immediately brewing and all kinds of nice things. So now I've been running around the house hyped-up and ready to clean...so I have accomplished quite a bit!

I also received my teflon shoe Saturday. Susan Veblen (teacher for patternreview.com) recommended the thing for ironing everything without ever worrying about messing up the fabrics. I haven't tried yet - or completed the curtains or dress or skirt and on on on on...

Don't mind the clutter upon clutter upon needless clutter. The polka dot pattern jersey is the dress-in-the-ever-so-slowly-making..of course I started my skirt months before.

The photo above is of my inspiration board for projects I have in mind for the present. My inspiration notebook is growing rapidly everyday.

Below is a picture from Vanity Fair of Reese Witherspoon in one of my most favorite dresses of ALL TIME!!! I love the way the bustier is split at the top and the vertical opposite black and white draped beautifully over her curves with the over-sized Texan style earrings.

I'll have to post pictures of the Sew Sassy order I received along with the great strech lace from Denver Fabrics and some sari panels I received from the classifieds on Pattern Review.
