2012: That's a wrap folks...

It's that time of year, the time when I admit that I did not finish my goals.  It's okay though since there were several other non-sewing victories.

"walk away" dress in pink taffeta with black polka dot organza overlay
pink silk dress

reproduction of Princess Margaret's 1960 wedding dress

1850s homespun work dress

2013 goals:
obtain a more correct silhouette for work that is functional and doesn't knock things off the shelves.
- short hoopskirt "mini crini"
- 1860s brown dress after Mrs. Lewis William Tappar's dress

Charlie Christmas prep

We call this Hobo kitty.  Catcher is not amused by the rain and flooding lately.
I helped wrap that bag behind me.

Charlie is being so patient waiting for his own presents this year.

"Mom, is it Christmas yet?"
