Meet Bella!

    I actually started this post the day of the tragic earthquake March 11, 2011 a day that will never be forgotten...I was so excited when I went to the post office to find my dress form waiting patiently for me to take home.....Little did I know that with that excitement a devastating tragedy would come and change the lives of some many forever...  I will be forever grateful! 

But on a lighter note my dress form arrived after only a week after purchasing...Did I say how excited I am  to finally have one.. I purchased the Singer dress form on Amazon for around 100.00 bucks, not bad at all! I also got a chance to finish my Vogue dress 1120 ,and I am  soooooo very proud of myself for slowing down... This dress  will definitely be in heavy rotation...It's so me...I am in love with this dress!

 So, I have to thank Toya from "Life happens be positive" I heart her blog! for also reiterating the importance of slowing down and taking your time...Thanks again Toya! Also, while we are on thank yous I have to have to thank Vanessa from "Sew filled to the brim" for posting about the $ .99 sale at Hobby Lobby this past week on Simplicity patterns..As you all know I am stationed in Japan....So no Hobby Lobby here :( So, I called my mom who lives in Florida to pick up a couple of patterns during the sale..And she was able to get all but one! So not bad! Thanks again ladies!

  I will be posting pictures of my new dress sometime this week, as it is ready and waiting for me to get Divafied(is that a word) Well, Divas continue to be fearlessly fierce!

  3. Congrautlations on acquiring a dressform. Are you going to pad it to mimic your own curves?

  4. Congratulations on getting bella into you sewing room. I had to laugh about you chasing patterns all the way from Japan. I'm a perpetual pattern chaser. I hit Hobby Lobby on Thursday and Hancock's today. Got all but one Simplicity and all but one McCalls. Enjoy your dress form!

  5. @knitmachinequeen I don't think I am going to pad the dressform( I don't know how lol) For now the measurements seem to be spot on so I just will go with that for now... @ Faye, thanks Lady! I am a pattern lover and Vanessa stated they were on sale..I had to get my mother to go get a few!

  6. Congrats on your dress form. It makes life sew much fun.

  7. Praying for you guys in Japan. Glad you got your dress form !

  9. Hey Candice! Haven't heard from you in a while, and just wanted to see how you were doing. I didn't see a place to contact you on your blog, so I am just leaving a comment.
