It looks much different now that it has carpet. I almost wish my carpet was grey because I really loved the color of the concrete floors. But they just weren't comfortable or warm and the carpet was free so brown it was and has to be.
Another options is my bedroom or my living room? Tell me what you think I should enter.

This is my dress I have been working on for the last two weeks. It was good for me to have a dead line, my friend Nick's wedding or it might have never got done. My mom and I worked on this dress that was suppose to be a "Fast and Easy" pattern from Butterick for many hours. All afternoon and evening Sunday, all afternoon Monday. I cut out the pattern for the top three times before I got it right and the skirt twice. Good thing I had purchased many yards of the fabric. I think I might be a pro at this pattern by now. Does anyone want the same dress in the same fabric? hehehe. The reason for having to cut it out so many times was first I forgot that I am not a standard body type any everything always has th be altered to really fit me, the second time was because I altered the pattern incorrectly, so the third time was a charm. I imagine it wouldn't have taken us so long if I got around to sewing more often but I rarely do. I still have a pair of dress pants hanging in my closet from last fall that I was suppose to take the hem out and lengthen. Hopefully I will get around to doing it this fall so I have another pair of pants to wear for work. The sewing machine is now dusted off and warmed up we will have to see what other projects I get finished.
