We took so many pictures of Socs that we kind of forgot about "Us" photos. And we took so many photos, that it is really hard to choose which to post. Here are a few to start!
I could run out of here right now without a moment's hesitation!
And hopefully no one would notice!
Yet, alas, I shall be here until I am old...
Then there is the homework, the housework, the gardening, the tired dog we ran rampant all weekend, and my loving darling.

Here is the overall effect of the new decals. Sure click the picture and view the details of the dragonflies and leaves! Also, just put up some new inspo. I'm digging the bright colors with animal prints and white dresses.

I decided to cut the tabs off the Walmart curtains to make tie backs. I still need to find two good limbs to use as rods, but there is still much time. Especially since I still have a load of ironing and botanical leaf printing to complete.
The ends need to be hemmed, but that is for a much later time. Might use a catchstitch.
This is the dress I am working on for AC. I finished basting the lining to the fashion tonight. I will work on gathering and attaching the skirt to the bodice tomorrow. This dress will have five small buttons on as a closure and shoulder straps that tie at the top of the shoulder. I am thinking about adding lining and netting to the straps, for better wear & tear, draping, and thickness. I'm doing the size four, since it's the largest on the pattern. I have found that I really enjoy basting and sewing by hand. I cannot wait to try a hand picked zipper. Soon.
The picture above shows more true colors of the fabric I am using.
I love being in here.
I still need to take a picture of my antique French Renaissance style chair I grabbed at Goodwill.
Socs decided to run off Friday afternoon. Thank goodness he is back home with us! I'm not really sure what I would have done if we never found him again. A million worries have left my shoulders and I haven't let him out of my sight all weekend!
