I'm back

Hello everyone, hope all is well with you and yours'!  I haven't had time to post a message in weeks, but I've been checking you out here and there.  As usual I've been working on various projects.  Didn't do a lot of prom dresses this year, just two.  I have pics of the first one...I'll post the second gown later this week.  In between making the dresses, I travelled to Dallas, Texas, for work. The orginal plan was to go to Dallas in early April---but the snow changed all that.  While there,  I spent my free time visiting my uncle who has been sick for a year----but I got visit a few fabric stores down on Harry Hines Blvd. Golden D'Or was the best! They had every fabric imaginable! I purchased a beautiful piece of burgundy cotton organza and silk charmuese. No idea what I'll make with it.  I stayed in Dallas until Sunday, so I got to check out the Martha Pullen Sewing Market at the Arlington Convention Center.  I had fun browsing the vendors and chatting with other sewers.  I even sat down and sewed some labels in pillow cases for a community service project.  It wet my appetite for Sewing Expo in Chantilly, VA.  My hotel room is already booked! 

When I returned to Baltimore, I literally sewed day and night.  Ms. Jazzy chose a black taffeta with an embroidered pink organza overlay (fabrics from JoAnns) for her prom dress.  Isn't she lovely! 

I'm working on a few things for myself to take on my cruise.  I'll post pics soon!  Happy sewing

Very pretty dress. I am sorry I missed you at the ASG Sewing event. I really enjoyed meeting Blondell, Melodye, Alison and others from the Guild.
