We've come a long way, baby. You were like one of those poor girls on What not to Wear, with your vintage 80's faux impressionist chintz and worn spots. Stacy, contorting her face with a grimace, and Clinton, rolling his eyes at the folks off-camera. You've got great curves, you're just not wearing the right clothes...
But you were a diamond in the rough. A $32 diamond. On sale. And I wasn't sure if there was room for you in my house, but I needed you. You were my little project. And girlfriend, we did ok.
Are you going to keep this up? Can you? Now that you know about hemlines and flattering your figure, playing up your assets? You will? OK, good. Because sister here isn't making you a new dress for a while. [roll credits]

I made the monogram pillow for my sister months ago. She keeps forgetting to take it home with her, so maybe I should starting spelling my name with a K and claim it as my own. Because I'm liking it with the blue AB print. There's another project, I suppose.
I'm excited to move on to new projects. Dresses for Fidget? For me? Should I tackle my growing stack of vintage linens?
Maybe a few poolside cocktails in Arizona will help me decide. Oh, yes.
T-minus two days. Yeeehaw!
