Rushing? Maybe not...

So, it's just over a week until the end of the month, which means the end of the Third Dress and the start of the Fourth (wow!).  I know I can get it wrapped up in that time, but the kicker is....can I get it done by tomorrow?

Why tomorrow?  Tomorrow is a very awesome occasion.  I work for a small chocolate shop here is Madison called Gail Ambrosius Chocolatier.  Tomorrow! we will make our debut on Food Network as "America's Best Little Box of Chocolates"! (September 23rd, 8pm Central)  It's all very exciting!  I'm the general manager at the shop, so the following days and weeks will (hopefully) be a very busy blur.  We will hit the ground running, creating thousands upon thousands of tasty handmade treats each day.  But Thursday is our final respite.  We're having a viewing party with family and friends of the shop, we'll get to have fun and enjoy each other's company a bit before the chocolate deluge...maybe get to wear a new dress? 

I have a number of hurdles in my way to accomplish that though.  Namely I only have about three hours at home between now and then.  And I don't yet have the zipper to finish this dress off, the buying of which will shorten my time at home.  Ah well....we'll see......

I do have two big accomplishments under my belt since we last spoke though. Neck band on, sleeves attached:

Hoping for "better fitting though zippers".
So, I think I'll start sewing.  But don't be disappointed if I chose to relax tonight instead of finish the dress.  That is what a sane person would do.  I hear it's going to be a busy week.  Wish me luck on both accounts!


  1. Luck, luck, luck, luck, luck. Love the dress. Have the TV set to watch the show tomorrow night. SO EXCITING!
    Love, Mom

  2. Hey Girl,

    Love the dress pattern. We did not get to see the tv program as I don't get around to reading your blog on a regular basis. Please email me if you know it will be shown a second time as we feel bad about missing the airing. We know you worked hard on the show and wish we would have known it was airing.

    Love to you and Matt,

    Dad Mouras
