omg you guys. i won something! now i did technically win a pattern [and some notions!] in far's giveaway, but it was more of a i-got-to-pick-what-i-wanted situation. but last month, rachel held a swarovski giveway. i assumed i wouldnt win, but left a comment anyway. turns out, the winner she chose, never responded to her email, and i was next! so all the way from austria, [via dhl. they left me a note after attempted delivery on the downstairs foyer door and i said wtf is this??] the swarovski elements swag bag!

etsy. the vast majority of my postings expired last month and i was tempted just to dump everything back at goodwill and call it a day. then my frugal/cheapskate ways said no way in hell. i also briefly considered going to more consignment shops and trying to sell stuff, but my lazy ways said no way in hell.

sewing board] i figured out what to do with the quintessential "vintage" dress. it has all the qualifications of the 70's-80's - heavy polyester fabric, pleated tea-length skirt, bubble top with weird lining, awkward shoulder pads and sleeve length. oh yea. and the pattern. stripey variegated floral. yuss.

well 90% finished atleast. the [aptly named] blanket stitch isnt quite done, but the front is completed and attached to the back. in my book thats a freaking miracle.
