May your salt flow freely...

Yellow -- My favorite color. Full circle skirts with pretty hems and layers. Pleats, darts, near-perfect zippers, fully lined in cotton. Lightweight denim- easy care, easy to work with, lots of colors, not too costly.

These are just a few of my favorite things. And all of them are involved in my latest dress!

Aside from the Red Riding Hood costume I whipped up for Josie, I rarely do the whole dress-thing. But, it IS Halloween time and everyone starts scramblin around this time of year looking for a costume no one else has. Josie's costume turned out so nice, and I actually enjoyed putting in the grommets and everything - shocker! So when Qball wanted to be the Morton Salt Girl, I just could not deny her. This was my chance! To make a yellow dress and have it actually be worn, not just look beautiful in my closet! So that's what I did yesterday. I have been staring at this dress on my dressform since last night. She is so beautiful and well made, I don't want her to leave me. Maybe Qball will just let me keep it for a week and stare at it longer. I am so weird. I sure hope I get to see her on Halloween! I wonder if she's planning to sprinkle salt behind her all night? I may cry if this dress meets the same demise as her Partly Cloudy with a Chance of Rain. Apparently people don't like getting sprayed with water by a stranger, even if it's Halloween and you're all dressed up like a cute lil cloud! Basically... heads are gonna roll if she ends up getting this dress covered in jungle juice.

AND look what I learned to make with my pics! Picasa 3 is infinetely better than Picasa 2. I can't figure out how to make it bigger without it getting fuzzy. I still think it's pretty fantastic.
