Sorry about the bad quality of the scan...I couldn't get it to scan any better. I won't bother posting a picture of the finished product, because the detail is mostly in the back and I was too lazy to take a picture, but it was quite a success! It actually looks kind of like a prom dress someone would buy at a formal-wear store. The fabric I used was a shiny dark green stretchy fabric...it's really pretty. :)
I am so, so, SO excited about our "weekend!" It start tomorrow and runs through Saturday night (he starts on the "dogwatch" shift on Saturday). Tomorrow night we're going to use our Restaurants.com gift certificate I got for $2 to try Canyon Cafe at the Quarry Market. I can't wait!! I feel like we haven't been out as a family in nearly two weeks!
Shiphrah is learning SO much every single day! She's adding words and phrases to her vocabulary constantly and is continually developing her quirky personality. It's adorable. :)
And I would write more to that effect but Kirk is being a little toot. Adios!
