I hope those of you who celebrate Thanksgiving had a great one. I had several significant things happen this long (and completely sew-free) holiday weekend. I found my wedding dress! I’ve always heard that you immediately know that you’ve found Your Dress as soon as you try it on, but it wasn’t like that with me. I really loved five completely different dresses and had to think long and hard and discuss the pros and cons of each dress with my mom before deciding. I’m so happy with my decision, but I really feel like I couldn’t have gone wrong with any of them.
My future mother-in-law (MIL) met my whole family, and everyone got along famously. Thanksgiving Day was loud and crazy and everyone ate way too much, but it was wonderful. This weekend we also picked out and bought Alex’s wedding band. He’s been trying to wear it ever since we got it home, but I keep telling him he’s NOT ALLOWED! I’m just thrilled that he’s so enthusiastic about it.
I didn’t sew at all over the holiday because we were so busy, but I did sell four items — two aprons to my future MIL, one bag to my friend, and one bag on Etsy. Four items!! Just when I was starting to feel prepared for Atomic. Don’t get me wrong — I’m not complaining at all about the sales. I just need to sew a bunch this week to replace those four items.
Starting with a new applique design.
I’m also working on a new apron design with — gasp — pockets. More on that soon.
