Thursday Portrait


Hello friends. I know I haven't been around blogland much. First I went to Seattle, then I had to do mountains of laundry, and catch up on my housework, then deal with the clothing thing. I have a lot of custom orders and so I have to step on it. Today I made this colonial style dress for an 11 year old girl. I have always wanted to make a dress like this, and it was really fun. It isn't quite finished yet, I still have to put all this lacy crap beautiful lace down the fronts. I couldn't resist trying it on stuffing my grown up self into it. So there you have it, me as an 11 year old colonial girl. BTW, in case you are wondering, that dress is NOT zipped up in the back!
And then just for fun, this bonus video of Black Sabbath live from Paris in 1970....check it out, it's pretty cool!

Have a lovely weekend everyone!

Your vids not showing.
Also, I have a washtub full of laundry you can take out and scrub, and make me some soap and candles too, oh, and I think you should make some corn pone cakes.

I think it's hot that you went outside with the dress not zipped. Nice job on the dress.

I think I remember Black Sabbath. The early 70s I was a hippie and things are a little foggy. I know I got married, but the rest?
