Life is too short to wear boring clothes so I interpret fashion and create my own

Here's me wearing the new jacket over my ten year old knit boucle dress from the Textile Studio Basic Dress pattern. I designed the cross-over petal collar on this dress that is still stylish after a decade! I got my hair done yesterday for first time since getting sick. It looks so much better, but what you can't see is that I am leaning against that post behind me because my knees and ankles don't function correctly and my leg muscles are so weak from not being able to use them properly over these past months. That combined with the numbness in my legs and feet seriously affects my balance.

The blog count says lots of people are looking at my blog. I got an e-mail from Linda Lee, the owner of the Sewing Workshop who said she loved this Ikina and that she can't wait to see the Tosca Dress. I highly recommend their auto-ship program for new patterns at a great discount and free shipping. If one of the styles doesn't suit you, you can opt out of that one. I've known Linda for several years, and she is a very busy lady, so it was so nice of her to take the time to e-mail me about this special project.
