it was another crafty weekend:

a sewing kit on the go. i thought it would be better than having them in a pencil case:



(i still have to master the art of bias binding)

yeeeesh...they all look like they're tucked in for sleep in a humongous, communal sleeping bag.









i went to the workroom for the snap coin purse class.
mine turned out really good...i think i will enlarge the pattern and turn it into a clutch.



Melissa's Snap Coin Purse, originally uploaded by the workroom.



i love colorful things and the workroom is a total feast for the eyes.
against one wall are bolts and bolts of the most beautiful fabric.
there are jars of embroidery thread.
and the most "dangerous" of all, the shelvings of fat quarters.
i couldn't leave without purchasing anything:






they're so juicy!



i also bought a much needed embroidery hoop.
i used to cross stitch and embroider a lot when i was young.
my mom used to take me to this store called stitches n' things and was fascinated by walls of jp coats and dmc skeins.
i cross stitched bears, frogs, cars...and flower carts.

my dad finally put up the shelf and audrey hepburn frames!

it's september and fall is in the aiiirrr.
but it doesn't mean you can start wearing uggs.
queen street was bustling with ugg footed grrls.
it's like wearing sunglasses when there's no sun.

*
speaking of fall.
i can't wait for:
- the TRENDS kickoff event!
- a night at the opera with the girlies to see don giovanni
- johnny
- thanksgiving/turkey+mashed potatoes day

*
i have an appointment with career counseling on tuesday at glendon.
the last time i set foot on that place was when i graduated.
i'm being counseled for my lack of a career. related to my undergrad, that is.

Hi again! Thank you so much for another lovely comment. I was trying to grow my hair out too. Didn't work! haha. I was watching too many Jean Seberg movies. I love watching french films, its so wonderful you studied them. I was reading your list of favorite films and I have to say 95% of them are films I've seen and enjoyed very much! I hope it's ok I keep leaving these long comments. :o) Oh and that dress I bought online at a place called Chinatowner.

Oh My! Sorry about the two comments. My old blog was qwest85 and I forgot to sign in to q's daydream. Didn't want you to be confused and not know who was leaving a comment. Couldn't trash the first one because I couldn't remember the password. Lol
Take Care
