Free Comic Book Day and the Two Hour Dress

Have you guys heard about Free Comic Book Day?

It’s as awesome as it sounds, a day for free comics.  Click this link to find a participating shop near you!  I found a place here in UAE that is involved, so give it a try.

Now, about the two hour dress.

I should have finished this dress in about 20 minutes.  Seriously, max – 20 minutes.

But, I think my machines are PMSing.  My sewing machine kept skipping stitches and my serger kept breaking threads.  I rethreaded, adjusted tensions, spilled some tears…nothing helped.  I’m guessing I need to get online and buy some ballpoint needles.

I’m not happy with this dress, at all.  It puckers, it pulls, the yellow fabric shifted out of place while I was *trying* to sew.  Luckily, Alana doesn’t really care, and it is kid approved.

Considering the first comic book we ever bought was Ms Marvel, I think it’s quite fitting for Free Comic Book Day…even though it makes my eye twitch.  This view isn’t so bad:

***No one paid, coerced, or bribed me to talk about Free Comic Book Day, I just think it is an amazing idea .***
