a surefire way to break my mysterious promise of a surprise is, indeed, to promise a post about a surprise! sorry to be late to my own party, but i've been racking my brain (still currently on strike) trying to come up with a proper tangible thank you, which is most definitely in order after all of the Ass Shaking Booty Stomping Project Sewn hollering going on around these parts.
my first thought was to share some of the prize booty with ya... but then, in a late night attempt to lure Brain back into creativity, my eyes wandered to the brocade section of mood fabrics online. those mischievous peepers, they like to linger there. this luscious lurex was hammered into the dress that got me through the pink challenge: an alien party frock that turned out to be a popular vote favorite.
(whoopsies, brain freeze, the fact that i just typed "popular vote favorite" made the introverted shy teenage girl in me bark i'msorryWHATdidyoujustsayYOUCAN'TJUSTTYPETHAT)
AHEM. PIPE DOWN GIRLIE. it made y'all giggle, and i likes gigglin', so i thought it only appropriate to share the shiny pink cackling! and, should my older, wiser, more extroverted kalkatroonaan ways terrify you, you could always go with the slightly more demure red & cobalt blue "right" side of this fabric.
now, i wish i could thank each and every one of you with some'a'this, but well. my million dollar check, she has not cleared just yet. something about proper identification. so, for one of you loverly peeps, i grabbed 2 yards of this extra wide 58" deliciousness (really this fabric is the bomb diggety) and i'll trace out the burda magazine zippered top pattern i used to make the dress (petite sizes 17-21) or this shawl top, which would show off the double sided nature ever so nicely (regular sizes 34-42). AND you'll probably get some other craziness too, because I LIKE YOU. a LOT. you guys make me happy.
(speaking of happy, may i just say i chortled, guffawed, giggled, and smiled big 'n wide over every single peep who peeped on my last post? THANK YOU. i haven't had the time to go OCD over the comments as i am wont to do, and truly i didn't want to seem disingenuous by typing thank ya repeatedly, but, for reals... thank ya. MOST REPEATEDLY.)
to enter just leave a comment on this post (oh let's say, about your favorite vice). and mais oui, you can be anywhere in the world!
