Mmm. I love Etsy! It's a place that I can truly call me own. Yet, in the same way I do not on it, because it is a website, not a tangible thing. Oh, well. I still love using it!

As you can see, I just posted another dress :) These two (blue and black) were from the same pattern. I wore the black one to Homecoming in '08, and the blue one in '09.

I love this fitted-bodice-flared-skirt style. It flatters nearly every figure (I have yet to find one it did not flatter) and it's so stinkin' pretty! Especially on my dear friend Niki :)

These pictures are also from my grand photo shoot. Keep watching for more soon...

another great dress listing

Last weekend, some friends helped me with a photo shoot of my dresses. I now have good-quality pictures to post on Etsy :) Here is my latest listing:

Formal Gown w/ Double-Gathered Bodice

I am planning to post a new dress every few days now. Keep on the lookout!

In other news, I gave up facebook for Lent--mostly as a motivator for doing homework instead of wasting time. I will be sharing other information on my personal blog:

Happy Sewing!

the joy of knitting

Check it out, bloggers: Stitch Princess can knit!!!! This is a photo of a lace trim I am making for a crocheted purse of the same yarn.

My oldest sister came up to Indiana (from Texas) for Christmas. She knits frequently, and is part of a knitting club. And she taught me!

I am discovering that knitting is so much fun! But, I'm torn. Which is better: knitting or crocheting? I like both.

In my loads of spare time, I plan to do some of each, to decide which I prefer. Or, perhaps I will just keep up on both :)

I took a J-term class this year (2 weeks of one class before the semester began). I actually did have free time then. So, what did I do with my free time? I made scarves for my roommate and suitemates! Now, I'm making a trim for a purse, as pictured above.

I just love knitting!
