I went fabric shopping too! And I got some super cute material for a new friend of mine who is the most awesome seamstress I have ever seen to make me some preggo clothes. She is making me ALL of the ones I was asking about on the old thread and ALL from freehand, no patterns! Wow!
And you should SEE the work she does-the most gorgeous renanaissance stuff(hint, she makes bodices like the ones everyone was oogling from that other site I think Kat posted!). Every year they have a huge renaissance party and she makes ALL the costumes for her guests!!! I am aiming for an invite this year
And I am double super syked because not only do I have a local seamstress who is now going to make me a whole new wardobe but she is a crunchy mama like me, raises animals and even gave me grass fed eggs-3 dozen-today and said she will have more for me on SUNDAY when I go to pick up the 4 shirts she is making-in 4 DAYS!!!
I think I am in love..lol
And on other excellent news fronts, I responded to an ad about crochet magazines to list for the next swap and we got to talking about how I used to crochet and haven't been able to because the memory of my grandmother hurt too much but would love to take it up again now and she volunteered to not only give me yarn and needles, but to reteach me how to crochet!!
Can I tell you how super duper excited I am about today??? It's been great! I am making all kinds of new local crafty friends and I couldn't be happier(but I still
you all SO much!!! Now I will just have more cool things to offer in swaps!!)
