It Has Been A Stretch or Two.

Standard

It’s definitely been quite a while since our last adventure. I should probably apologize for that. But I simply didn’t… feel like it.
Anyways for the majority of October and November I was on a little ‘stay-cation’. Sassy had come to Disney for three weeks and it was probably the best time of the last few years!
I had forgotten what it was like to be in the presence of a real friend.
Normally even sharing seen entire house with just a couple of people I will go crazy after a few days and last a week at most. But three weeks were nothing and I wish everyday that she didn’t have to leave.  I have my fingers crossed that she gets the lottery for her green card this’d time. I will find some other way to get her here!
It took her a week to get over her jet lag, and the second week was mostly spent with me starting to get sick. And rage quitting UNO. I still say it was more than luck. 😛
But the last week was filled with endless photos. We did Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, and it was the best night. We sat our butts on the second floor of the Main Street Train Station for over an hour and a half waiting for the fireworks and Christmas parade!

And I whooped her on Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin!

We would spend a bit of time almost every day going for walks around Pop Century and Art of Animation. I also took a lot of walks around by myself as well. Time to myself where I could listen to music and just walk. I never do well just sitting down for too long.
And with that last night at Hollywood Studios for the Osbourne Lights, her great visit came to an end and it was time for me to take her back to the airport. We stalled as much as we could. I even parked and checked into her flight with her. We walked around looking at the different shops till we could stall no more and I had to leave her to go through the security check.
I’ve been worried about her since she left.
I know how I have been going crazy myself going back to this house and way of living. 
I took my sewing machine back and made a craft room.  My mom had it set up to the side of the living room and there was no way I could work there. I’ve never worked well in open areas.

Simplicity 1687 is my latest project. After wearing the Dragon Dress when meeting my boyfriend’s parents (that’s… a story for another post, okay?), and receiving so many comments – I decided to get back on the horse.

I chosen to use a purple silk brocade for this particular design. I’ve never worked with silk before or installed a lining. So…. it is definitely taking some time.

But I’m getting there! It will just take some time. Wish me luck guys.
And let’s hope my 22nd year goes better than my 21st.
