So since i finished my hat i have crocheted pair of mittens, some small lace motifs and a pair of slippers, i have also finished one book and have been working on a few more. I am starting school on monday so i probably wont be able to keep up the pace of my crocheting, but hopefully i can do a project or to on the weekends. Oh, yes, i did crochet a hat for my boyfriend and a pair of socks for him as well. hopefully i can finish cleaning my room today before radio...:D

Ah, summer is almost over, but im excited for school to start. there shall be many exciting things to look forward to this year. And in almost a week it will be my two year anniversary with my boyfriend.

Happy Crafting.

I am hopefully planning to start a pair of mittens today. we'll see how far i get with really tired today after a wonderful show on the radio last night. I did also mangage to get my hands on a copy of civil War: a history. i am quite excited to read this, and then i will also try to finish "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" which is an incredible book.

Wish me luck.

So now that i have finished with my civil war day dress i can go back to my crocheting. Last thursday, me and my boyfriend went up to geneva for the day. we had a really raelly nice time and found two yarn shops which was a dream come true since the jo-ann near my house closed (nothing against you michaels, you just have a poor collection of yarns). So whilst in geneva i picked up a size 4 crochet hook and some beautiful cotton thread. i then procceded to crochet two doilys. then yesterday i picked up some smaller white thread and a size 10 steel hook. since then i have completed one small doily and i must say, i am proud of my lace.

so for now i return back to the world of hooks and yarns.

happy crafting :)

After slaving(not literally) over this dress for the past two and a half days i have finally finished it! The dress looks incredible and im so proud of it. the color is perfect, the style is just right! and it wasnt a total pain in the ass to make. i had so much fun sewing it together, and i can say i did it the old fashioned way :D

Its almost done!

After about five hours of sewing by hand today and four hours yesterday, i am almost finished with my shirt! today i tried it on with my skirt and was very surprised to find it looked incredible. For this being my first article of clothing i've sewn (well i did a pair of pajama pants for school), it is absolutely amazing. plus i was able to do this all without a pattern, i was too stingy to buy an actual pattern and probably would have goteen confused/frustrated by it so instead i just sketched out the design, drew it out on the sheets and cut it out. plus the shirt i purchased to be used for undersleeves it the perfect complement to the dress itself! the only thing missing is a brooch which i expect i can find in the town thrift shop or good will. if not there is always ebay and amazon. the brooch will be the only thing i pay for besides the shirt. the dress itself is free since i used old sheets <3

all i have left to do on the shirt is sew on buttons and hem one thing. it will be maybe an hour left of sewing tops, my next project is going to be an apron for the dress. i am quite excited to see the finished product.

in other news, i inquired about joining a reeacting unit today. hopefully i'll hear something about this in the next few days. that way all of my sewing wont have been in vain...haha either way it wasnt in vain, i finally have a beautiful, hand sewn creation to call my own. its my baby and i love it with all my heart!
