yeah... still haven't had time to upload those photos I promised. (^^);; I will get those up as soon as this quarter is over (about 2 more weeks).
I have fallen so far behind in my tailoring class that it's not even funny. Basically because the serger made my wool pieces a whole size smaller! (; n ;) So I had to re-cut everything.... plus I need to go buy a little bit more wool for my lining, unless the serged piece will work (haven't checked yet). Yesterday was a pretty exciting day. My class had a field trip to America's Mart in the apparel building. It has been about a year since I went downtown, so the scenery was quite nice. I was going to walk to Centennial Park, but decided against it since traffic was about to get worse. Anywyas, We got to talk to Michelle Harrison who is a very lovely person. Her show room is huge~ offering 40 different collections! Plus, I got a free book featuring Ugo Zaldi's sketches (nice)!! I would love to have an internship with her or even work for her. After talking with her, we were free to shop the mart (only with the stores with the huge signs saying "SAMPLES" because this is basically a whole sale place. =P I found many lovely samples I would have loved to take home (one was a $18,000 ring... yeah, no way I could afford it... but very lovely). I decided not to get anything though since food is my number one priority. Raising prices does not help me at all!
In other non-school related news. I will be moving to a different building in my complex. Why you my ask? Because I can no longer afford where I am at. We are upgrading to a 2 bedroom 2 bath apartment and adding a room mate. Hopefully everything will go well with that. =P Mostly because I stay up until 4 am in the morning sewing.
I also found out a few weeks ago that Shaye, my brother's dog that my parents took in after Bailey was born, has bone cancer. (; n ;) She has the worst kind and nothing can really be done for her. The vets assume that she only has a few more months left before she will die.
