The framing store called and my piece was ready for pickup!
I could not wait to get it home and hang it. The frame is custom made, and the matting is a shimmery linen. I love the look, though, it looks rather underwhelming in this picture :)
The plus is the framing turned out great, the bad side is that is was waaaaaay too expensive, so I won't be going back there for the rest of the things I need framed. I had this done at ArronBrothers only because it was the closest framing shop to me, but what they charged was nearly half of what it took to frame my poster size Anatomy of a murder film poster.
Sometimes you put up with stuff when you want what you want when you want it. But I love the way it looks and it's the perfect addition to my sewing area.
Speaking of sewing, I've decided to make this the weekend of pants.
Look at this.
All of my old jeans that I made are way too big. Now, before people start saying it's all the dancing, I don't think so. They were kinda big before I was dancing so much. They were especially large in the seat but now they make me look silly. At first I thought it was the 40s cut, but now I realize the legs are just too large.
So, I'm making new pants. I trimmed down the leg, waist and seat and the fit is a lot better. I'm also going the quick route and adding zippers up the side instead of buttons.
I still have to hem these, but I think they will be the new fit for me. Thoughts?
Me trying to be cool, or constipated I can't decide which.
Yay, I'm back to sewing! This weekend it's sewing, freelance, and possibly a bit of cleaning. I still have to finish up the bedroom. It's strange, some of my friends think I have too many jobs. I seem to think I don't work hard enough. I have my full time gig, freelance, my etsy store, sewing for other people, then for myself. I could do more, I'm sure of it.
How many jobs/hobbies do you all have?
Okay, I'm off to bed. I'll talk to you all tomorrow.
