And because there's nothing sadder than a Tropical Goth...

... I have decided to sink into the very depths of despair by crocheting a gigantic wool blanket during the most hellish time of the year. There is no sign of rain and you can fry an egg on the sidewalk.

Also stopped all sewing because I remembered it was Mother's Day in a couple of weeks. So this blanket will be hers. Happy Mother's Day, Mommy! <3

Quick Update!

Summer is really here and the heat is depressing me, so I decided to make something summery without resorting to floral prints and bright colors. I got bored last night and made this dress:

Black and white striped stretch and a wide wide black garter. The total time it took to make this dress is about three hours. That includes drafting, cutting and sewing. It's so easy! I'm kinda thinking about making it a downloadable pattern. What do you think?
