Warm Weather Wear

It has been HOT HOT HOT this week! So, I whipped up a little something to wear in this scorching weather. It is McCall's 5317. I actually snagged this pattern st Goodwill for 29 cents!...29 cents! What costs 29 cents anymore? The fabric is some slinky stuff from the dollar table at Wal-Mart. I've had it for about 3 years and am just now cutting into it.

So here is my $2.29 dress.

Fluff Fridays

A Naptime Miracle

For the first time ever, we have both boys sleeping in their own beds, in their own room, at the same time!

Look Who's One!

Here's a quick photo roundup of Kyle's first birthday party.



Extra festive.

I didn't get a picture of the food before it got attacked. We did tons of Filipino food: Pork BBQ, Pancit, Lechon Kawali, Ukoy, Fried Rice, Lumpia Shanghai, Fresh Lumpia, Siomai, Ube-Coconut Cupcakes, and Halo-Halo.

Kyle gets help from the present opening experts.

Wee Woolies

I finished Kyle's woolies. By the way, short rows and stripes don't mix.

Ye Olde Ren Faire Update

The basic construction of my dress is done...You'll notice that I opted for a front instead of side lacing dress, as shown in a previous post. After looking at many more paintings, it just seemed more historically correct.

Extra foufy sleeves...check.

I still need to dye the over dress, and apply the trim. And of course I will get some more appropriate lacings. The following image is simulated. Badly.

Overall, I'd say its not too bad for a sofa slipcover from Goodwill...I didn't even use a pattern...totally winged it. Wo0t!

Why is laundry never this much fun for me?

Choli Moley, Batman!

For those of you who don't know, I have a secret identity as a belly dancer. I also LOVE to make belly dance wear. This is a choli I whipped up for a fellow dancer. And yes, the awful photography was done in my bathroom mirror, MySpace style.
