And sadly, nightime does come quickly now. Stupid winter time. Anyway, I have LOADS of stuff to show. Like a whole truck. Well, almost.
My parents came for the weekend, with, if not a truck, a good load of stuff scavenged from my Grandma's place. AWESOME stuff. I need a new bookshelf. Oh wait, I'll get one, when they can fit it into the car. In the meantime, I got the books, and a bazillion other things loaded with family history. A blanket woven by my Grandpa, mirrors and a tiny cabinet made by my Grandma, and the "something beige and black" art I was looking for for our bedroom ? Fashion drawings my Grandma made in the 50s and set aside for me some years ago. Wow ! I'm a little bit overwhelmed every time I discover she'd set aside somethign especially for me. Just wow.
And Maryline also finished the jewelry for my wedding. I need a drooling icon here, folks. Pictures will come when I've mounted the big bead into a necklace. So that was the !!!! part of the weekend. I'm just amazed and admirative that this lady managed to move half a life's stuff out of the old house, pack it, put it into storage, and yet find the time, energy and space to finish the jewelry for a woman she barely knows. I'm incredibly grateful. If some of you ever bumps into art by Maryline Hernandez, here's shameless promotion for her, damned !
Did I mention my parents were here today ? Progress has been achieved on the jacket ! More than I thought, even. this morning, I just had a sleeveless vest without peplum. Now see how it looked by 8pm !
The jacket looks a little bit wonky because my Mom's did not really stay still
. I have a back shot
of the before. And this one is blurry, but I really love it.
The right side is not perfect, I know. I have to compensate for my Mom's "slight asymetry" here and did not shorten the right front enough. Pictures thanks to my parents digicam because mine turned everything either grey or orange. Stupid digicam, you'll get replaced for Christmas, you know ?
I'm sitting here in my short stays, I have pictures of them, too, and will post some... in another post, after I've had some sleep. Good night folks !
