Yesterday started off sort of slow. I tend to get a little blue during this time of year, and as beautiful and sunny as it was outside yesterday, I was feeling down. I decided to head out for a nice walk to get a little fresh air and send off some packages at the Post Office. After I'd finished that I wanted to keep going, so I thought of a couple of errands that I'd been wanting to do. I wanted to start seriously looking for a dress form, and look at fabrics and notions that I may need to make a dress.
I was in luck! I'd asked Karyn from the workroom if she knew of any places in the neighbourhood that were selling vintage dress forms. She mentioned that there were a couple of antique shops between Bathurst and Portland on Queen Street that usually had one or two in the window. I checked them, and found the prettiest old dress form in just my size! I didn't even have to get an adjustable one!
I ran some more errands and got more fresh air and exercise, and was feeling great by the time I got home. When I got there I opened up my email to find a wonderful surprise waiting for me in my inbox! The art director at New York Magazine was looking for a set of illustrations for their upcoming Weddings special edition issue! How perfect! I couldn't have been happier.
