A friend picked up her ballgown from the dressmaker yesterday (it looks wonderful), and told me that the fabric for my dress had just arrived and she and the dressmaker were oohing and aahing over it.
I'm meeting with my new dressmaker for the first time tomorrow. I can't wait to show her my fabrics, and discuss my ideas with her.
I'm now able to get my head back into a hairdresser's sink, so after about 6 inches or so of outgrowth, I FINALLY had my hair colored again today. And my hairdresser confirmed that, after my hair-thinning episode, there is new growth coming in again, particularly on the crown of my head. I'm not one who typically gets vain about my appearance, but even I've got to admit to myself that IS a pick-me-up to look in the mirror and know that I don't look drab.
Finally tamed my sewing machine.
For a while there it was jamming up underneath the fabric and getting stuck. It's still bending/breaking needles occasionally and skipping stitches like crazy, but it's functional. It may have been the elastic I was using bc I had no issues with just plain fabric.
Either way, I've pretty much finished latin dress for friend! Just gotta do the stoning :-D
Nice! I still need to sew up my whole costume for a dance comp at the end of September....this is about to be interesting.
Cat came home after being missing for three days, and I got accepted to a Masters of Social Work degree at my first preferenced uni! Today's been a good day.
My man made me breakfast this morning
Have a job interview today for a pub near work. The staff kept coming through and saying I should apply, so I did, and yay.
Hopefully I can manage both jobs, and then I can afford to take dance lessons again.
Got the job! Hopefully I start next week. Keen for extra money.
Friday! Lake! Bye!
Did you know that if you leave a banana in a really hot car, it turns black?
Must remember to leave a batch of cookie dough in my car.
Cocktail onions. A revelation. I could skip the cocktails and just eat the onions!
That is all.
I didn't realize that I have an "account" with my car dealership and that there was a credit in it - so my oil change today was at no charge.
New practice dress
A couple for my last photo project as a college student. This will be an awesome semester.
My gym has a yoga studio with a floating floor. They're letting me and my amateur partner have our practice sessions on it whenever there isn't something scheduled, as long as we do it in advance.
It's less than a 2 mile drive from my house and a 1 mile drive from my partner's, so it's beyond convenient.
