      Aw thank you that really means a lot to me! I’m in boston visiting my sister right now so I have a lot of photo shoot ideas! :D I packed so many clothes just for photo shoots I hardly had room for my regular clothes. ;) So hopefully I’ll have a post soon!

    Hi! i was wondering if you’d mind sharing the pattern for your sailor dress with me. It’s absolutely beautiful, and i’m trying to start a new project using something that would really give me incentive to keep working on it. you’re a very good seamstress and designer, and i really hope you can achieve your dream of being a fashion designer (as the box on the right-hand side tells me). anyway, even if you’d prefer to keep the pattern to yourself (which would be perfectly alright by me), i just thought i’d let you know that i’m a teenage sewer (not yet good enough to be a seamstress), and i find your pieces to be really inspiring, knowing that someone in my own age range could create such beautiful pieces (and photographs). Thanks!

      Hi threadbear! Aw thank you that’s really nice of you. I’d absolutely love to share it with you, but the only problem is I don’t think I kept the pattern. :( A lot of it was just free hand. It’s basically just a gathered dress with a waist band, a yoke around the neck and trimming at the bottom. I don’t know if that helped, but if you have anymore questions I’d be glad to answer. I’m so sorry I wish I still had the pattern for you. It’s so great meeting another teenager that sews! I wish you all the best luck on all your projects! :)

It’s called Dining Room Studios, but it’s on hold for the time being as I am starting a new shop. Live and Conquer. I wish you a ton and tons of luck!

So after people started asking me about it I thought I would. :) My summer mowing job isn’t the best in pay. Haha. I’ll definitely add you as a friend. I’ll probably have to ask you for help…I’m not the best when it comes to technolgoy, hope that’s ok? I wihs you luck too with your new shop, I like the name of it :D

    Hi Melonhead, I thought I would write to you as I haven’t in ages. Your new picture is really cool! I like it! My sister is an amazing face painter. I love getting full face butterflies. Thanks for praying for my headaches. I seem to have gotten to the bottom of them and it may have been because I wasn’t drinking enough water. So now I drink SOOOO much and now I don’t wake up with them. So thanks heaps! I hope your sewing is going well! Im checking out your latest now! Cya!

      Oh you shouldnt have felt like an idiot. People do it all the time here in the Summer. its interesting and cool.
      I havn’t fully gotten rid of them my headaches yet. I get them in the afternoon now, but Im still pleased I dont get them when I wake up because that is terrible! I find the more water I drink, my headache wouldn’t be as bad……but sometimes when Im working my brain really hard I can’t help it. But I’m feeling a lot better.
      No I dont need glasses. I’m a little far sighted which I got from my mother who has that too. But that only means when I read things up close the edges of the letters aren’t as clear as they could be. So thats not a big problem at all for me. So its all good. But it would have been cool to wear glasses. hahaha. :]

      My brother is a ventriloquist, and he makes his own puppets, but somehow he seems to need me to sew the hands for him.
      I also am making a dress for one of his puppets.
      I’m costuming a show at my local library too, so my life is pretty full/ good right now.

      Have you gotten your sewing machine back yet ?

      I went to Joannes yesterday(with no money, so I didn’t get anything) but I saw this red PVC vinyl and the first thing I saw was Seth Arron’s red pants from the circus episode! of Project Runway
      haha, I think in tv shows now.
      God bless, =)

      The tension is all messed up so it’s getting fixed. :( But I just found my moms old one so I can still sew. :)

      hurrray! thank goodness for that! 2 weeks without machine is just wrong. I am really tempted to buy myself a nice new swanky one with all the extra money I am getting from doing my horrid London work… but my Nan has spares she wants me to have… what do I do?? Go for the free machine and keep my Nan happy or buy myself a suuuper doooper new whizz bang machine!!??

      I know, I’m so happy! Ooo that’s a tough one. Well… you could always buy a new one later. I would see if you like your nans machine first. Some machines are a pain to sew with, I’d see which one is better to sew with. But then again big and shinny….

      Yay! I’m so exciting and now really curious!! Yep, I think next time envelopes are called for… I think I got over excited!! :-D
      So what have you been up to? I am at Ben’s Dad’s house in the country this weekend cat sitting… Its so lovely and peaceful here… I might have to bump off Ben’s Dad and wife so we can have their house… ha ha.
      I started on Ben’s coat yesterday and got quite far.. he’s nagging me as to when it will be finished… soooo impatient!
      Hope your ok :-)

      Haha yeah me too. Nothing much. I need to start practicing my piano….I haven’t done it all week. I’m a big procrastinator when it comes to piano. That sounds like fun. Haha I’m sure they’d love to hear that. Men…what to do with them? I told my brother I’d knit him a hat and I’ve regreted it ever since. He bugs me about it all the time…mabye it’s because I said I’d make him one about 2 years ago. Haha.

      Awww… I’d love a piano!! I had a keyboard when I was younger – Infact we still have it – ben uses it (he’s really into his music and is making an album at the moment).. My Mum plays beautifully, she learnt when she was younger but her Mum sold her piano one day without telling her… she taught me on my keyboard! She really should get herself a piano. Are you doing grades?
      Men are silly… never promise them anything thats what I have learnt!! :-) Have you got a boyfriend / interested in having one? Thats when the real fun starts, although when I was your age it was more friend that are boys that you hold hands with and then split up in a week :-D
      I got my Nan’s machine… thats what I have been making Ben’s coat on!! Its good :-)

      Oh really, cool. What style of music does he play? Aw that stinks. No my piano teacher doesn’t give out grades. I’ve been playing for around 2 years now. Haha no I don’t. I not allowed to date until I’m 16. There’s a boy that I really like though….he’s blonde, has blue eyes and he’s hilarious! But I don’t think I’m ready to date right now anyway. Haha yeah that’s what most of my friends do. It’s pretty silly. I’d want one that would last a little more than a week. lol. How did you and Ben meet? Cool!! What did you do with your old machine?

      He plays the guitar and banjo, plus he records all the various parts and puts them into his computer and jiggles them about to make them sound like different instruments… so he’s a one man band of sorts!! He’s really good. I could probably put a few of his tracks on a CD and send it to you as I couldnt begin to describe what sort it is… kinda folky I guess!!
      Dating is kind of overrated when your younger… although I do think you learn a lot from silly relationships. For some reason I thought you were already 16!
      Ben and I met through friends, we’ve been together for 9-10 years now…. scary!! I was with someone else when we met, but he wasnt very nice and kind of messed me up a bit. Ben and I were friends for ages before we got together… I think all good relationships should start with a good friendship.. so if you like this boy just be friends with him??

      Yeah that sounds really cool, I’d love to hear it. Yeah I guess you learn what you like and don’t like in a person that way. Haha nope, I won’t be 16 till December. That’s feels so old when I think about it…pretty soon my childhood will be over. : ( Wow 10 years! Well good thing you dumped that other guy and went for Ben. Sounds like you too are good for each other. Yeah I’m happy with that. I doubt that it would amont to anything anyway, considering I’m 15. I’ll probably end up the weird cat lady on the 3rd floor. Haha. ; )

      Ha ha… I’m convinced I will be the wierd old cat lady when I’m old… Ben’ll trade me in for a younger version and I’ll be the creepy old lady with loads of cats who smells suspiciously of wee wee!! ha ha.. something to look forward to later on!
      Believe me… I am 27 and still feel like a big kid, unfortunately you just have to have more responsibility, do your own laundry and cooking and go to work, but other than that you can do what you like. Its all about offsetting good stuff with bad stuff, when your a kid you have to do what your told and follow rules, but you get to be a kid, when your older you make your own rules and do what you like, but then you get to be more responsible and have bills and stuff!! Justa trade off I guess.

      Hahaha life….what fun. I’m seriously thinking about pulling a Peter Pan. I’m going to find myself the nearest fairy and hitch a ride to Neverland Yep that’s what I’ll do! You want to come with me?

    • Me_2_large

      Apr 30, 2010, 08.02 AMby msgems

      Absolutely!!… do you think the fairy would knock a few years off for me?? Admitedly I do still look like I’m in my teens (I still get asked for ID in pubs and if I buy any alcohol.. I’m 27!!!) But yes… maybe they could bring me down to 16 again… that would be great! Let me know if you find one and I’ll jump on a plane. :-)
