when I had came across the Jane Austen read  along, telling myself  ohhh I’ve got to get to the library, then  there’s getting busy with one thing & another then there’s going out of down then I began to wonder, do you ever wonder? lol! well I wondered are there free online books out there, I know there’s kindles but I don’t have one  don’t’ want one as I like my books but this was a reading emergency lol! & lo & behold  I came across this site

http://www.readcentral.com/chapters/Jane-Austen/Pride-and-Prejudice/003

just look to the right & click switch on smart reader & all the chapters  comes up, you an read as much or as little at time as you want, so I put the link in my favorites  so’s not to lose it, I’m still planning to go to the Library as I’d like to find the books Sherry posted on her blog which can be found & purchased on Amazon.com

detoxing my skirt, cutting it down has helped me see that  I am losing weight slowly but surely, still a ways to go but not where I use to be

I undid the wait band, & both sides , ironed  & folded each piece  (front/back)on the fold ,cut out a smaller pattern,see all the fabric to the side of the pattern, that’s how much I cut off, that’s how wide my skirt was & I filled it up lol!

challenge26

so today with lots of time spent with the seam ripper, I know you’re thinking I could of  ripped or cut those seams lol but not knowing  just how much  I needed for my new size I thought it best to play it safe & do it the hard way lol!

10433142_4477691595970_4377061458701522325_n[1]

too late to turn back now! it’s all cut out! I pinned it together & it fits my dress form, so that’s a good sign, right? lol!I’m hoping to get it finished up tomorrow & do some photo shots of dressy & casual
