I want to take a few minutes to thank everyone that took a minute to reassure my insecure self that you are indeed out there and still reading what I write.
You made my heart glad!
I would mention that probably around half of those that commented did not have a way for me to contact them in return!
That made me sad.
I did reply to your comments on the post if you are interested.
If you are only commenting via Google + I can't seem to figure out how to find your email address. It is not linked to your comment and when I click through to your account I don't see it there either. In case you were wondering why you are not getting emails back when you comment
that may be why.
I have no intention of leaving blogging.
I was just wondering what folks thought and if anyone was out there.
My comments had dwindled to maybe 2 or 3 of the same people commenting (thank you)
so I was wondering if maybe they were the only ones reading!
Obviously you all proved that theory to be incorrect.
I always seem to have a lot to say and need a way to express it so
no plans to stop blogging for awhile anyway.
I did finish the "muslin" (which I actually made using Peacock Kona instead of muslin) last night. Now I have to pack it for the trip to NC on Friday and have my DD try it on.
I have to remember to pack pins and marking pencils too so I can get a good fit.
When we return home from Florida,
I will be able to make the adjustments and cut out the "real" dress.
What a lot of work!
I think when you factor in my time this was a really pricey endeavor!!!
Here is what it looked like when I got it to the try on point.
Sorry for the bad lighting but it was night time.
Yes, all the seams are on the outside.
It was so weird to do that but will make it easier to work on.
They had me sew it all together with basting stitches, so I think I will make the adjustments
and then take it all apart and
re-sew it together (or in this case adjust the pattern, cut out the real dress and then re-make this one). Probably the last time I want to do this.
Maybe if I make anything again it will be for me and probably just a skirt!
LOL good thing I love that kid!
I miss quilting though.
I now officially have WAY too many things floating around in my head and
this dress business needs to end so I can get them all out of my head and made up!
Blogging may be intermittent while I am on vacation so please bear with me.
We leave for NC on Friday and stay with our daughter for a few days.
We will leave her place on Sunday morning and head to Sarasota.
If anyone lives in the area and wants to meet up, please email me and I can give you my cell phone number so we can do that!
I love to meet new people!
I am going to link up to WIP Wednesday over on the Freshly Pieced blog.
Have a great rest of the week and thanks again for the sweet comments!
