What Have I Been Doing...?

  You might think that I have been wallowing in anguish that my 'big dance' is over. Okay, maybe I am, but I have been busily wallowing in anguish. So I've been sewing and crafting in despair.

Some of the guys had BETTER show up wearing WWII uniforms. Giggle.

Oh, and here's all the other stuff I want to do: 

Yup. That really is a bunch of patterns and fabric in a JoAnn's bag. 

Oh, I love it. *smirk*
