Some of the jewelry I made recently.
This is the dress I bought at GROUP USA.
This is the dress that I decided not to wear.
As I mentioned on my last post, I have been sick. Last Tuesday I had to go to ER because my coughing was unstoppable. The diagnoses was bronchitis. Since I am taking a little vacation retreat at home, I took my time to update my blog. I have not been sewing that much lately either. I have not finish the blue skirt from my last post because I need to buy a blue zipper. I also spent my free time doing some jewelry. Yes, this can be call procrastinating.
Two weeks ago, me and my husband went to an Army Ball and I did not wear the dress that me and my mom spent time working at. The dress turned out to be to simple for my taste and I took a picture of me wearing the dress and there was a flash reflection on my belly that was not very flattering. So the day before the ball I had to go on a mission to the mall and I ended up buying a black dress at Group USA. I think it was a better choice for me to buy the dress than to wear the pink dress we made. So, after another failed project I have been asking myself if I should continue sewing difficult projects or just stick to the easy ones like fashion shirts, handbags and aprons. LOL! TO SEW OR NOT TO SEW THAT IS THE QUESTION!
I will continue sewing and posting my projects. Sewing is to me not just a passion but my scape, so I won't stop. I think that we all learn from our mistakes and practice is crucial to achieve success. Also, Christmas is coming so I will be posting some projects that I will be sewing for Christmas presents.
I am going to make two handbags with this Simplicity Pattern. One for me and one for my best friend.
