I made a comment on Friday about not posting so much about my wedding. Apparently you all are actually interested in the wedding! Cool. So, while I'll be trying to tone down the wedding posts a little (this is supposed to be a vintage sewing blog after all) I will continue to update you on our wedding goings ons.
The tentative date for the event is October 8, 2011. We're praying that this date does not fall on a UGA home game. If it does I'll have to find a way to stream football coverage into the reception. We don't want to be inconsiderate to our guests of course.
I also purchased two cake toppers over the weekend. I say I, but it was actually my Fiance who footed the bill. We couldn't decide which one we liked better so he bought me both. These are officially our first wedding purchases! Oh. Em. Gee.
A few weeks ago I was tagged by Ali at The Wardrobe, Reimagined to answer 8 questions. Ali, I'm sorry I didn't get around to them until now, but here goes.
And eight questions.
1. What song never fails to move you?
While I don't think there is only one song that never fails to move me, one that I can think of right off the top of my head is Nancy Wilson's "Never Let me Go". Amy Adam's rendition of "If I Didn't Care"from Mrs. Pettigrew gets me choked up as well.
2. What's your sewing threshold? As in, what will you let go, what must you absolutely fix?
This is pretty fluid and flexible for me. Depends on how I'm feeling that day. If I want to finish something and the garment is for myself I'll let a lot of things slide. I'm much more likely to jury rig something for myself. As long as the overall look is polished I don't mind a few mistakes. If the garment is for someone else you can be sure I'll be ripping out seams left and right to make sure everything is perfect.
3. What's your "desert island" book/movie and why could you read/watch it over and over?
Why the Pride and Prejudice Movie of course. The costumes! The camera work! The locations! They did such a fantastic job on that film. Plus the story is Jane Austin so it's not something I could get tired of easily!
4. What garment/accessory do you wear the most?
Currently it's my engagement ring! Love my round cut solitaire!
5. What wouldn't you be caught dead in?
No, maybe I changed my mind. This actually looks like a lot of fun to wear, plus you could really freak out the neighbors.
6. Your motto/mantra?
It'll all work out. I always try to tell myself that. Things may look ugly now, but it'll all work out in the end.
7. A designer you consistently like and why?
I know it's not sewing, but I love Robyn Chachula. I love to crochet, but you have to be careful when looking for crochet patterns. There are so many patterns that are just stuck in the 1970s and not in a good way. Robyn is somehow always able to make crocheted garments that are modern, functional and so so cute.
8. Something about you we wouldn't expect from reading your blog?
I'm a huge Western fan. Yes, I'll admit it. I have a western film collection larger than any woman should own. I've seen more western's than my Father and Fiance combined. Can't reasonably see making myself any outfits from those movies though. The 1880s just aren't my style I suppose.
