Sewing a bit and getting it done.

Happy February lovely people!


The weather in Los Angeles is so nice and it's set to hit over 80 degrees today. I'm taking Mr. Handsome man to the vet for a bacterial infection, drawing, and then washing my hair, a lot to do for my Monday off.

This weekend I actually decided to get some of the sewing things out of my head. I organized some of my patterns, I organized the printed NewVintageLady repros I have in stock, I worked on another Frankenstein suit for Workshop 77, and I finally, finally started on the draping of a dress I've had in my head for weeks!
