Some of the loverly behind-the-scenes folks here in the PoliNation garden chipped in to get me a “thank you for blogging” present, some beautiful fabric that I actually tolerate to make myself a much-needed dress. I have a hard time sewing for myself, so I made “scrap” dresses to get the pattern worked out. I ended up with some much needed nighties from the not-quite-right efforts LOL and a couple not-too-bad every-day dresses. Finally, I had the courage to cut into the beautiful fabric and I made this!
Corporal K was able to fly through town recently, on the way to and from a doctor’s appointment. Actually, we are an hour beyond the doctor, but they’re too poor to afford gas to come for Thanksgiving or Christmas this year, so she got up at the crack and drove straight through to our house, we had a speed date style visit … talk as fast and possible, watching the clock, then shoo her out the door so she made it to the doctor on time.
The reason I mention this is that I finished my Beautiful Dress JUST in time for her arrival and the first thing she said on clapping eyes on me was, “Ohhh, you look so pretty in that!!!” 🙂
