My hair is the only thing that's been cut this week. The picture was taken by photographer Per Hanstorp during a photo class he held at my job this week.I've been pretty swamped at work with long days to boot so this week I've only spent about 30 min sewing. And that time was wasted since I manged to attach a bib to a dress the wrong way. So much for starting sewing after 10 pm on a weekday. The dress I am working on is a black rayon/silk dress with a tuxedo bib. Apart from the above sewing error it looks pretty promising, so hopefully I'll be able to finish it this weekend.
Instead of sewing most late evenings has been spent watching season 2 of Heroes. The first season rocked. I loved the multilayered story telling, the unorthodox format and the clever suspense building.
However I've been pretty disappointed with season 2 so far. Characters that should have been put to rest after season 1 is reused in what feels like a concession to producer pressure and viewer popularities. Also the multilayered story telling is starting to spin a bit too far for my liking and I fear that Heroes will turn into nothing more than a high budget rendition of Days of our lives. I hope I'm wrong, I've only watched four (or five, can't remember) episodes, so maybe my harsh judgment is a bit premature?
As it's Halloween-times I'll end my ramblings with a parting shot of my daughters wearing their skull dresses.
The dresses is made in cotton/poly stretch velour. And the skulls are sew-on patches.
