I sewed my first sleeved dress this weekend. This week I will attempt to sew this dress. The long sleeved one. I just love dresses like that. I am also going to sew some bloomers. I had a great time at Joanns on Friday. Browsing all the fabrics and patterns, it is so much fun. I have to really push myself through the learning curve though, as I can get discouraged that things are not turning out as perfect as I want them to.
Here is my sewing corner in the spare craft room, hopefully some day soon this will be a fully functioning sewing/craft room. As you can see we havent done anything to this room yet. It still has the unfinished wood floors and the 60 year old wallpaper. Ughh!
My birthday present is on the left of the table ;-) and the dress is hanging on the wall.
Super Grover was attacked last night by the 4 legged beast that roams the house in the late hours of the night searching for lonely stuffed animals and de-stuffing them. His insides are laying next to him. Devon said he's in the emergency room awaiting surgery. LOL
Here's Hog Dog enjoying the beautiful 80 degree weather and Devons freshly raked pile of leaves. He's such a sweet dog! And to clear his name he is not the de-stuffer of all things stuffed.
One last thing before I forget. I bought some OUT Pet Stain and odor remover from the pet section of the grocery store. It is supposed to be good for fabrics and such to get the "dog" smell out, naturally.
When this morning as I was cleaning the bathroom it struck me, its great on urine smells. So I sprayed it around and on the toilet as well as the floor and surrounding walls, let it set for about two minutes and wiped it clean. It works great! For those homes with little boys who sometimes just seem to miss the potty, this is a great solution.
