I'm on a mission. I made a to-do list for today last night, breaking up categories into "early morning," "mid-morning," "early afternoon," and "early evening." So far, so good.

Last night I went over Dave's and he helped me with a movie that will go on the LCD screen of my graduate exhibition at FIT. One of the files worked beautifully, the other is corrupt in the original file, so that one isn't working as well. Yikes.

Then we watched the end of Taledega Nights, which we have already seen.

This morning I finished working on the one shouldered dress. The fabric is from Mood Fabrics, the store that is featured on Project Runway. Fabulous place.

Bear in mind, these pictures were taken early this morning with no make-up and my hair is rather frightful.

I'm pleased with the way it turned out and am looking forward to wearing it to one of the bajillion weddings/showers/grad events/formals I have coming up in the next few months.

I'm now going to tackle the rest of my to-do list. I'm determined, and I don't want to get off track.

That dress is so cute! Nice job! Do you have your own sewing room, or just a section of a room for sewing? If it's your own, .. totally jealous! Our second bedroom turned into more of a PHOTOGRAPHY studio than a SEWING area! I guess I can't complain much yet, since I haven't bought my new machine. But, when I do!! I am reclaiming some of that space.

I'm pretty much spoiled. I still live at home most of the time (long story) but the area of the house I live in has a bedroom with a walk in closet, a storage room, a full bath and an extra 'living' room - which has a two seater couch, bookshelves, a table, a sewing table, and my mannequins with two closets. I use that extra room as my sewing room, but also use it for scrapbooking, knitting and holding my art books.

It's a pretty sweet set up and basically means that I will never move out. Ha.
