All of the clothes are out of my teeny tiny closet and in my new wardrobe. Final reveal of that will be soon – but I need to get the doors put on. For now, my shoes have a nice rack at the bottom of the closet, and my best fabrics have a new home. The hanging fabric shelves are a temporary solution – hope one day to get real shelves put in.

What I should be posting is a picture of the Mardi Gras dress I made, but I want to write up a whole post about how I made it, so I’ll save it. Instead, I’ll post a pic of my friend Jenn’s cousin who was the king of Morpheus!

The best part about Mondays. I walk the boys to the bus stop, then walk around the neighborhood to get to the coffee shop where I get, well, tea. And then admire my sparkly nails and the Mardi Gras decorations people have up on the way home. (Okay, that might only be this Monday.)

I heard there was a Mardi Gras store that sold fabric. After I got over my disappointment in ALL OF MY FRIENDS who didn’t tell me this anytime in the past two years, I drove across town to behold the wonder that is this sparkly stuff. I bought a few yards of it, and it is being transformed into a dress to wear to the parades as we speak. It is not, however, meant to be apparel fabric, probably more suited for decorations, but who cares?! It’s Mardi Gras! So I also got green satin to line it, and sometime in the coming days, you’ll see what I’m making with it. It’s definitely fun!

PS While writing this, I realized I sewed my first clothing item two years ago today! That’s nuts! What a fantastic two years it has been. 🙂
