Life is busy and it seems I've been at some level of "sick" since November. My hair and I were not speaking to each other until about a week ago. Hence, the one month (argh!) absence.

First of all: too short? too young? both? belt? no belt? I made this because I wanted something other than a sweatshirt to wear in a cold, old house. It's not very flattering with my jeans so I thought I'd put it together with some black lycra pants. I like it much better than the jeans but... not sure if I'll actually wear it out of the house!

Okay, in an attempt to get a post done in less than two hours I decided to try a blog-video. It's rough, has bad lighting, you can't see the garments very well, probably can't understand what I'm saying, and well, my list goes on. But it's a NEW POST so just keep this in mind as you watch :) I had some techno problems that turned it into two videos so, of course, it took more than two hours to put together, way more than two hours!




I'm sure this will eventually be the inspiration for one of those "I can't believe I put that on my blog" posts!

Thanks to Diana and Alexandra for the Kreativ Blogger Award! Rather than nominate the seven, I've updated my Daily Visitation by adding at least that many more to the list.

Your blog e o is great, it's always interesting to see more of the people we visit on blogs! I really like the top and personally prefer it without the belt. You should definitely wear it out!

Not too short, not too young, I like it without the belt, too! I really enjoyed your video post, I think it's so neat to "meet" the people I read about. To see you in your sewing room being yourself is neat, and I applaud you for putting yourself in front of the video camera (do any of us enjoy that?)! It was well worth the 2+ hours!

Cool! I've been thinking I want to try a video on my blog one of these days but my technology isn't that great. Nice job.

Enjoyed the blog video.

I like the top best without the belt, but maybe because that's how I would wear it :-) Loved the video post - it's so fun to see and hear soemone you've only met through their photos and writing. But of course, if you ever make it back to the frozen tundra I'll want to meet you on Grand Ave for coffee and a visit to Treadle .

Your video was really nice. Thanks for commenting about my pants.

That was fun! I could understand everything you said. Nice to meet you:). As for the top - I like it without the belt. But I don't like the lycra pants. I would have thought jeans but you say you don't like that. How about a knee length skirt and tights?

Dana, stop by my blog when you get a chance - I left you an award.

BTW, Treadle Yard Goods now has a website...
