Hi! I've been busy this week. I worked a few extra days at my part time job, spent some time drying out my car, and I've been busy getting the next update for the vintage goodies ready (dressy dresses, black dresses and old photos)
I'm also finally getting around to posting a photo of my mermaid gal that I made during my crazed Summer of sewing. I used some fabric that I had bought a few years ago - a pretty blue and silver ocean waves for the tail, old muslin for her body and a seaweed type print for her top. The hair is made from a fabric that just reminded me of hair. I cut it in strips and stitched it to her head. I made the pattern for her body myself, which turned out pretty good. Just a little oddly shaped head that was hidden by all of the hair. I love mermaids and I had been wanting to make a mermaid doll for awhile. I embroidered the face too.
The Gilmore Girls is back with a new season too. Another show that I yell at the tv through most of the episode. The actual Gilmore Girls bug the hell out of me anymore. I've had just about enough of the two of them, but I love everyone else on the show. They are both too self centered and pouty. Lorelei is so stupid for blowing things with Luke. Yeah, he should have told her sooner about April, but the guy was in shock. Does she really think things are going to suddenly work out with Christopher after 20 some years? And Rory with Logan. He's such a bore. I can't find anything to like about him. So less of the Gilmore Girls and MORE of Luke, Sooki, Lane & Zak and their band, Paris, Mr. & Mrs. Gilmore and the rest of the town!
OK, gotta wash my face, put on my pajamas and get ready for Doctor Who! (yeah, it's another exciting Friday night) Tomorrow I'll be making an apple cake for my Dad, who'll be 64 on Sunday.
