Yep, I'm still alive and kicking ;) I have lots of excuses for not posting, way too long of a vacation(I know, sounds impossible), laptop problems, over extending myself with volunteering(soccer coach, school, church), a lot going on in my own mind, and I just really haven't had the time. And I'm really trying to connect to the real world and not just the online one. But I do miss it, so I'm going to try to slowly work on posting again, if nothing else than for a history of life for me.
Speaking of history, what do you think of my first ever historical dress? I made it last week from Past Patterns #803 for our annual church craft fair. I made a chemise and petticote too, but I bought the corset and cheated with a bridal crinoline. It didn't turn out perfectly, but I'm happy with it for my first shot at such a thing.
I'm wishing you and your loved ones a very wonderful Thanksgiving. And if you have never made your own cranberry sauce, you MUST!! It is so easy and tastes heavenly.
