Monday - ahh, yeah, late
Late this week. Suprise there ah?
Last week was my anniversary so we were on our 4th honeymoon (as dh likes to call our anniversary trips, lol). However, I did record the 'first look' into my second stitch fix box for your review. I will spend the week editing it and post it for ya on this upcoming Monday.
Below is a picture of the cool serger box bag from the review I did 2 weeks ago. Since I didn't have any takers for the freebies I decided to make one for a WAHM swap I participated in. Actually, I did three of them trying to get it just perfect. It was not perfect but I sent it anyway. The teenager even took one to the earlier attempts on the bag. This was an awesome zippered box bag. Who knew you could install a zipper with a serger and it actually stands up like a box. Loving it!! The theme for the swap was 'the beach'. Wellllllllll, that made things a bit harder, being in a city with limited fabric options. But I finally found something at Hobby Lobby. So I went with it. Whadyathink (Translation: what do you think, lol)? The little square in the middle is a matching business card holder I also made for the person I received. I even had a greenish seahorse button for it, teehee. I thought it was too cute!
I am finally taking another belly dance class. This will hopefully help to get me started again sooooo... I found this cool wine colored fabric with these thin shiny gold lines. I think these are gonna rock as a sweet pair of tribal pants. I self drafted a pattern and made a mock up pair (that I actually wore to class). My classes for a 6 week session will start on Thursday so I will let you know how the tribal pants work and then I'll post a tut for them. Since I also have a workshop on Saturday I may make two pairs. I am so excited to get these rusty hips and broken shimmy back into action. Although I have never taken any classes on tribal style of belly dance I am looking forward to it. I love the fluidity of their movement. I will learn as much as I can about all styles and take what I like and leave the rest, this will help me to create my own sense of interpretation of music with the dance. The more moves I have in my database the more choices I have to create to be free!
Well, that's about it for this week. My anniversary trip was great, I even found some fabric, of course, lol. Oh and I am cooking the luncheon this weekend so I'll have a new recipe to report on and share with you. So that's three things I know I'll be posting for the next three Mondays, woohoo, no excuses because these have to be done. :-)
Ok, off to editing now, that is such an involved and slow process, sigh.
Love and shimmies,
