I should not be so excited about having buttons made, but OMG I HAVE SOME BUTTONS AND THEY LOOK AWESOME. Even if they took far too long. XD There's definitely a learning curve to this widget.

Note to self: this does not mean you now should put self-fabric buttons on everything. Buttonholes suck. With love, from the rational part of your brain.

I think I'm going to be using fleece to make my friend's Gatomon tail, paws and ears. It's on sale now at Jo-Anns so that's even awesomer! Is it hard to work with? I'm so scared of messing up on this thing...

As for my Mozaik Role Gumi... why is it so hard to find a premade red pleated skirt? 0_o. I didn't want to have to make it but it looks like I'm going to have to. I really wish I figured out I was going to do this before so I could have used all those coupons Jo-Anns had before.

I caved and went and asked my supervisor who does the schedule to drop me to only 40 hours/week for the two weeks until Sakura-Con.

I love having overtime and good hours and big paychecks, but I need to finish Erza. Seriously. My group is counting on me. I have so much stuff I need to do it's not even funny.

I'm getting kind of nervous about my Dolorosa cosplay. I ordered the wig from Arda, but considering the backlog of orders, I don't know if it's sold out or not.

So along with a trip to the gym tomorrow, I need to do some dumping out and re-organizing of several drawers... and then get some more work done on the craft foam brooches. I got all the testing done, and the stencils cut out. Now to actually MAKE the things. I can probably have them done within a few days, spread out over three or four hours, in a rough guess.

Going to Jo-Anns tomorrow with my friend in order to get the supplies to make her Gatomon stuff and my Mozaik Role Gumi. *looks around online for coupons* I'm hoping they have all of the colors of fleece I'm going to need for this.

Have you ever tried to make a design, you look for ideas, and you find one that's perfect...but you don't want to steal it, but it's all you can think about >.<

I think I'm going to have my mom call that awesome, amazing sewing store that's like 40 minutes away and has really odd hours. Because I really don't want to pay shipping.....nor do I want to pay $25 for 12 hackle pads or like $35 for Swarovski rhinestones (but those are so pretty ahhh)
I also just kind of want to look at fabric, so.

I'm finally watching Howl's Moving Castle. I've never seen the whole thing before now. I can see why my friend loves it so much.

*eyes sunhat in my closet that I've had since I was 10* I finally have a use for you now...

Awww. Spring has sprung for everyone! I'm totally empathizing with c.com's backlogged wig shipping, even if it means my wig's arrival will be cutting it rather close (I did 7.5 hours of office work today. And I'm a lab assistant. Thanks spring rush x_x)

I want to get a new sewing machine. o:

Last month I went into a dealership store and I was really impressed with the Pfaff Ambition 1.0 they had. I was less impressed with the $800 on-sale price tag.

But, after reading all the reviews I could find on the Ambition 1.0, it seems like a solid machine. It also has a bunch of features I had never even considered looking for a sewing machine because I never knew they existed. And about 130 more stitches than I probably will ever use.

Next week I'm going to a third dealership to see more machines/the same machines for possibly different prices, and then I will most likely go back to the original store, look at the Ambition 1.0 again, and make my final decision on it.

My current Brother machine has trouble with 4 layers of broadcloth, it's time for an upgrade.

If anyone wants to tell me about what machines they have/machines they want/info about Pfaffs and/or the Ambition 1.0/anything about sewing machines, that would be pretty neat. o:
