Hey! I totally kept visiting the forum to see if it got reopened and then noticed that whoooops, it was. I just missed the notice.
Back on the old forum I was MissElisabeth. But since the forum closed down I got engaged, so I figured that I should probably change my username to indicate that I'm not single any more! Not that I'm married yet but…*checks* 194 days!
I'm from Poulsbo, Washington. I just graduated from Corban University with a degree in Secondary Social Studies Education. I'm currently living at home and working on getting my teaching license so I can substitute teach in the school districts here. I'm spending a lot of time sewing, working on teaching stuff for homeschool related classes and just enjoying being done with school. Oh, and planning a wedding. And altering my future sister in law's wedding dress. And enjoying the fact that I no longer live 4 hours away from my fiance, and that thanks to Congress and budget issues (stressful as they may be) he's not across the country on a Department of Defense work rotation!
I'm getting excited to plug back into the sewing committee. I'm enjoying actually sewing for fun again! I spent three years as a theatre costumer for my college. It was a fast paced, high paced setting which was really good and fantastically fun. I'm definitely in withdrawal from that (and just volunteered to do some other theater sewing) but it's good to have a break and realize how much I've grown from that situation but how much I still have to grow as a seamstress and a person!
It's good to be back.

I remember you Miss Elizabeth. I changed my username too. I really relate to what you said about working professionally you can get "burnt out" . The joy of wnet out of making things and I am more in design end now.
So I decided to make things for me this year, for fun. Keep sharing like you used to! I look forward to seeing your posts

Welcome back, Elisabeth! I'm so glad you're here! Congratulations on your engagement and forthcoming wedding – I can't wait to see what your wedding dress looks like. You will be sewing it yourself, I hope?
Looking forward to seeing your projects!

Thank you, ladies!
Katrina – I was never going to make my own wedding dress until I did theatre sewing for a few years, then did some alterations jobs on formals – I decided that mass made dresses didn't fit my quality standards, and that I could very easily make my own, and it'd be awesome. Currently, I've draped the pattern and just need to work on my first mock up – in the middle of working on a bunch of other projects! My sewing room is currently overwhelmed by my future-sister in law's wedding dress, which is a wonderfully fun project – making a 1980s wedding dress look…not 1980s. =)
