Life has a way of getting crazy and getting away from me, but I finally feel a little more on top of things after a few weeks of nothing short of total insanity. I finished a paper for one of my classes and that leaves two more to write and one final to take. Not terribly bad, all things considered.

The first hard frost of winter hit the corn fields, and my car today. So, I guess I should be tracking down my wool socks and getting ready for the long cold winter. Personally, I would rather it stayed fall a little longer, but I doubt its going too. I think winter is actually here.

Since the winter is coming, I decided to go pastel for these vintage inspired dresses. I wanted to make the sorts of things I imagine a Southern woman wearing to church… of course, being neither Southern or having ever gone to church more then twice in my life, I have no idea if anyone would actually wear it to church. Still, I like them, but the black wig might not fit under the pastel green hat.

    So glad you are back! Hope the “insanity” calms down for you.
    And yes, southern women still do wear those sorts of outfits to church – at least the older ladies! Although some of them would never go without sleeves.

    Thank you Dee, Boots and Beth for your kind welcome back wishes.

    You’re probably right Beth about the sleeveless dress not being proper for church. I don’t even like to wear sleeveless things to work since I feel like my shoulders should be covered. Is that old fashioned? Probably, but it makes me feel better.
