This past year has been a whirlwind of action packed frills...well...maybe not so much, but action packed.
I've received some pretty wonderful things this past year, not simply for Christmas, but I feel blessed.
For this past Halloween I was given some money to buy fabric for the Halloween meetup my friend Sweet Okashi and I have been hosting for the past two years. It's a lot of work and a ton of fun and I would like to keep this tradition going with her, we've been the dynamic duo since we met.
Sadly, I have not finished the jsk for that said meet...
Working on it!
I have it mostly together and the top and bottom halves are nearly ready to put together but I feel as though something is missing. I'll figure it out, I'm on a roll right now, which I'll blog more in a moment.
This Christmas I received my mother's old singer serger machine. She bought me new thread and made a doughnut pincushion that even has bead "sprinkles," it's super cute.
I did also receive Innocent World's Rose and Playing Cards jsk with the matching headbow and socks....head will explode in 3...2...1...
Obligatory stock pics.

Back on the sewing front; I'm working on a few new projects that should be finished within a day. I started this past week on the Angelic Pretty pattern in GLB 45 and even made a post for that and a pair of wristcuffs on sew_loli. (Sadly, the lace used in the making of these said wristcuffs were forgotten about. The lace is perfect for wristcuffs and it has been sitting in my sewing cupboard for....oh say 3 years.)

Next on the list after the wristcuffs and blouse is to finish my sailor onepiece, make two more blouses in black and cream, and finish the Halloween meet~up jsk before summer. One other thing I wish to do is to jump into the blog carnival, or at least use it as a template to get back into the
swing of things.
That's it for now, I have several bazillion things that I'd like to get done today and I've got my tea to go!
