It's about time I finally finished this skirt! I'd say it's been about two years since I started it. I am glad it's finally done. It has made me feel very short, though. The pattern said the shorter length skirt was supposed to be calf length. I shortened it from that length so that it would be at my ankles and wouldn't trip on it, that there ended up not being enough room to add the last button at the hem. So there is currently an unused button hole visible. Oh well.
I have decided to join The Historical Sew Fortnightly. I missed the first two challenges. I thought I didn't have any UFO's at all, since I haven't done much historical sewing. It took quite a few days of thinking to realize I hadn't finish this skirt yet.
I unfortunately did not finish by the deadline, I had a problem in the hem that I had to fix today. It didn't take long though.
I haven't done much sewing lately, and I am so looking forward to the rest of the challenges!
The Challenge: #2, UFO
Fabric: 100% cotton, I think it was actually meant for quilting, but I was able to buy for under $2 a yard.
My Grandfather had asked me if I would crochet christmas stockings for his cats. He adores those cats!
Anyway, I had no idea where to even begin. So I searched Pinterest. My Mother even suggested a pattern, which was really cute, but a little too small. I decided on this one. Pinned here. I had pinned it previously, but the link wasn't direct. Anyway...
My Grandfather loved them! He said they were the perfect size. He especially loved the one on the far left, with the stripes. It's also my favorite.
Les Miserables is one of my favorite movies. It's up there with Fiddler on the Roof, The Phantom of the Opera, Pride and Prejudice, and all other works of Jane Austen, the works of Charles Dickens, etcetera, etcetera. I can't get enough of it. And if it's a musical? Die hard fan right here.
This cover for On My Own is pretty good. The woman is so funny, you must watch at least the beginning, okay?
Sarah Barks has an amazing voice. I love her as Eponine. The emotion she puts into her performance is stunning. I can hardly wait to see how she does in the movie. I'm sure it will be epic.
On a side note...
I have come to a conclusion recently. Nick Jonas is a terrible singer. Just listen to him. Okay, well, you may not want to do that. And his acting? Don't even get me started. But anyway. Moving on.
I am incredibly excited for the movie in general. I can't even attempt to describe it. Not because I have a hard time conveying my emotions, which I do, it's just that this movie is going to be so amazingly epic. I don't believe there will ever be another version made that can compare. Watch this video.
This isn't the first blog I've had, this is the fourth one I've started.. The others weren't really 'me', if you know what I mean. Hopefully this one will be.
I am still in the process of getting the look how I want it to be. The layout is how I like it, but I'm not sure about the background and the colors. I'm still trying to figure those out. And I'm not sure If I should change the name, or if my name will work...we'll see.
