I recall seeing this dress a year or so ago and screaming that I NEEDED it. And then I promptly forgot ALL about it. Then perusing a ‘show us your dream dress’ thread at offbeatbride.com, I stumbled across it again. O_O;;
I’d commented to Q last night that I wasn’t such a peacock fan. But CLEARLY I WAS WRONG, because DO WANT THIS DRESS! But in different colours… MUHAHAHA! Teal/turqoise and red, anyone? :D DELICIOUS!
Really do need to make that paper-tape dress form I’ve been talking about making with a bunch of my friends for about, what, three years? Guys? GAWDS!

We’re out Vogue Patterns hunting! And I’m sorry, but I find this dress completely RIDICULOUS and I am totally drafting myself a similar pattern for the dress on the right. V8359
Misses’/Misses’ Petite Coat Dress? YOU AR DUMB! I LOVE YOU! xD xD
*will insist on rocking out that collar asap*

I am making myself this dress. For no reason. I will wear it in the house baking bread.
That is all.

No, I’m serious, what IS up with all of it!? xD Largely my favourites at Whirlingturban are all variations on the same theme, but what delicious variations they are! I mean come on the red and blue-teal details on this skirt and playsuit style!? Yes, you heard me PLAY. SUIT! xD xD LAWLS THE LITTLE SHORTS :D DELICIOUS!! SO WANT!
Other seriously serious wants include the Emerald & Peacock Sharkskin (do want to just potter about in O_O), Jumbo Polka Dot Wing Bust Dress, Emerald & Peacock Wing Bust Dress (OOOM NOM NOM NOM NOM!!). Plus, I’m a big fan of three of their off-the-rack bridal options: Woven by Hand, Ivory Kissed with Gold, & Posies on Cream with Palest Pink Lining. Scrumptious!

Greg’s flu has managed to mutate itself while holidaying in his person. Consequently, it has now found the great magnanimity to settle into me in an attempt at repeat custom. Thanks very much, influenza. Enjoy your stay, please, DON’T come again…
At any rate its left me lying flat in bed, with the novel feeling at least that today I am unable to stand and my muscles are screaming for completely out of the ordinary reasons. Its almost pleasant, conceptually speaking. Unfortunately, the reality is that even my shins hurt. WHAT KIND OF FLU EFFECTS ONE’S SHINS?! Preposterous!
So I’m attempting to battle on as always, get some work done and in the meantime I get to read up on surprisingly enlightening articles on typographic maturation: “Phaeton” – A classic Bearskinrug Article. When DOES one use those extra characters save for flights of fancy when designing visual elements?

APPARENTLY, Greg is too much of a sweet as hell modern guy to buy me chauvinistic overtone gifts and so asked me to post yet another wishlist of goods. OMG SO HARD! *laughs* WHAT DO I WANT THAT’S NOT YARN, FABRIC OR KITCHENGOODS?! xD
The answer? Well OBVIOUSLY its clothes *laughs* I am so lacking in new/wearable dresses and tights that haven’t been rendered crotchless from being worn more than once in their lives >_<;;
Then I remembered I had the Vivien of Holloway website open since January, so I could randomly click back to those tabs and fawn over the mountains of skirt and deliciously constructed boned bodices…
Not just in red, but turquoise too! And of course I’m dying to have a trucktonne of hugely huge petticoats (RED! WHITE! PIIIINK!!) to go with them and to go under other clothes I already have/plan to make. MmMMmmmmm..! Petticoats aren’t hard to make but they’re SO TIME CONSUMING! *laughs*
Unfortunately these aren’t exactly what Greg was asking for, I do believe he wanted me to list things that you could buy locally in a shop. DARN IT! *laughs more* But still, nothing can stop me from fawning over these a little longer. ^_^

I’m pretty sure that Essie warned me that this set was going to be released soon, and warning is so totally the correct word here. The fabrics and patterns in Heather Ross’s Far Far Away II set conjure up SO MANY awesome project ideas I am full to bursting.
I somehow think, however, that Greg wont let me purchase a mess of smiley moons and wistful cats to make new quilt covers/pillow cases for our shared bed however… ^_^;; xD Though I DO really need to find some awesome fabric combinations that we both like (YES! My man does actually have an opinion on fabric *outs him*) to make us more. Our totally mismatched bedding is starting to urk me, even though the reason we went that way was because of lack of funds and that together it became ‘OURS.’ <3
Confession time? I used to HATE the Owl & the Pussycat when I was a kid. Used to drive me batty that the cat didn’t just eat the owl. DID IT HAVE NO SENSE OF PRESERVATION!? But now it just fills me with such a feeling of whimsical nostalgia that I adore any reference to it when I stumble upon it.
Old age hypocrisy, apparently I cherish it.

EEE! Ma friend Essie has created another gorgeous x-stich pattern for her etsy store. This time based on her adoration of pretty tea cups.
Though I have ZERO patience for cross-stich on this kind of scale myself (I can’t ever get the backs to look as neat as I’d like! xD Yes, that’s right, I don’t do it because I don’t like the part you CAN’T SEE xD) I’d SO LOVE this whole set in reality. EEEE! The really fat stripey teacup is totally my favourite. So paunchy! xD
