That’s my Ryan for you. He really is the best for so many reasons…. here are just a few…..He does all the undesirables I don’t want to do (changing light bulbs, smoke alarm batteries, unclogging drains) as well as the things I don’t want to learn how to do (all things computer related even as silly as loading songs on the ipod), he does all the manly stuff-- anything car related, home improvement, yard etc…. I rely on him for so many things and am so glad I don’t even have to think about doing them myself or making sure they’re done. I love it. One of the things I love about him is he’s so conscientious and doesn’t trust anyone more than himself so if he doesn’t know how to do something he’ll learn how. Another thing he does that I appreciate so much is he always gets really thoughtful gifts. He gave me one of the best most thoughtful early Christmas presents this year. My very own dress form! It’s beautiful isn’t it? Once this belly is gone I can adjust it to all of my own dimensions to make it a perfect fit for making clothes. How awesome is that!
Ryan you rock!
A few years ago my sister Annie and I made a form out of duct tape that was a mold of my torso. A literal mold of my body. She wrapped me in duct tape then cut me out of it and taped it back to together then stuffed it with stuffing……I threw it out last week as soon as I got my fancy new one, I wish I’d gotten a picture of it for memories sake.
Here’s how my sewing room stands for now. There is still a bit to do, but right now it’s functional and all the hard stuff is complete so I am more than happy.
The white table with my sewing machine is temporary, we want to do two tables on either side of the white hutch one for the sewing machine one for the serger. We still need to cut down at least two of the tall chairs so they’re regular height and can be used at my sewing tables and then I need to find fabric to recover the seats. The lighting is pretty bad so we also need to have a ceiling light installed. Then it’s just more decorating and such.
