Ok, I'm taking this off [ profile] vayleen's journal, but I'm not requesting something as I'm in a position to enjoy her cooking periodically anyway (and, trust me, that's a really really excellent position to be in... there was this chocolate tart at girl's night on saturday...).

The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me!

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

- There is no guarantee you will like what I make.
- What I create will be specifically for you.
- It will be done sometime within the next year.
- You have no clue what it's going to be. I get to choose.
- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.

The catch? Oh, the catch is that you have to repost this, and repost right away. We can all make stuff and make someone's day a little bit brighter!

So! Said dress is mostly finished after a two hours late-evening sewing bender (that's not a very long sewing bender, for those of you who don't sew). It went together perfectly... I have one little thing to fix at the bottom of the zipper (which looked a little nicer when it was just basted for some reason and not stitched properly but that's a minor woe and might be fixed by a good pressing). But, it fits fabulously for a one-off, cut it out and stitch it right together kind of thing. I'm not lining it; I finished the top with bias tape (which yielded a nice firm feeling to that edge which I think will give me more security that it's not going to ride down which is always, if irrationally so, a fear in a strapless dress). I also bought the material for the bolero jacket last night; it cost more than all the material for the dress itself but it's -gorgeous- and I -love it-. So tonight, I need to go find some nice trim for it, press it, and hem it. I'm very pleased; from my initial try-on yesterday it looks really nice. The project is so I have something nice to wear for [ profile] alaskanmermaid's wedding. I didn't really bring any formalwear back from LA (I need shoes... I think I have shoes. I wore heels at Julie's wedding...) and I'm pleased that this has gone together so nicely because I don't have a lot of time on my hands between now and then.

Oh, boy...

To shop on Etsy is to realize how clever I wish I was >.>...

Travel plans for New York are made for next month.

I can't keep my hands out of anything. I've sewing I'm at, knitting, guitar, the usual singing, and more writing than I can hold in my head at any given moment...

Not to mention a thousand more ephemeral things, which I relish even more. It is good, it is good, it is good. It is...

I hate having so much to say and then realizing I don't, as soon as I open my mouth. The most interesting new development is, however, that I seem to find myself falling back into the fold of a smile behind my teeth, every time I go silent.

I have three names to play with:
Kestral Gaim
Adler Mourne
Yaeli Brokov

No relation.
