I just made up this fabulous pattern in a lovely, soft, rich brown corduroy.  I omitted the front panel, and added extra fulness to the skirt.
 
I love the way it drapes.  Long.  Warm.  And 100% Cowgirl!
 
You can just see a little pink boot sticking out...
 
Too cute=)
 
Happy Trails y'all!

Oh, that is absolutely darling, dear!  It looks so cozy and warm.  Definitely cowgirl;)
 
I need to make a winter riding skirt for myself - maybe I can borrow the pattern you made?  Please?=)  And would it be too much to ask where you found such pretty brown corduroy?  Brown goes with pretty much everything:)
 
Love,

P.S. You know, we have Scottish nicknames, but we don't have cowgirl nicknames...:)
 
P.S.S. The little pink boot is simply darling:)

Thanks:)  Yes, very cozy and warm.  I'm thankful for that on these cold days!
 
I actually borrowed the pattern from Mrs. Rayburn, but I'm thinking of getting the pattern myself, it's so nice:)  Somebody gave us the fabric, so I have no idea where it came from before that;)  It has a print, though you can't see in the picture, that looks like tweed or something.  I really like it.
 
HTSYS!

I'll chip in with you to buy the pattern, if you'd like:)  I really like the way it looks. 
There are so many neat patterns on that website - I wouldn't mind having a really full split skirt, like the Clara's Skirt style they have=)
 
Hmm, I guess I'll  have to seek out some soft, cozy, brown corduroy on my own then...or an equally nice color:)  I do have some very pretty soft gray corduroy, but I'm set on making that into a skirt like the one I made and gave to Ellen.  Actually, I think I'll work on that today...
 
HTSYVS!

P.S. Really, I don't!  I remember Wildcat Kellie, of course, but...is mine Dale, or something?  Please refresh my poor memory:)

Alright, or maybe one of us might get the Wyoming Ranch skirt and the other the Clara's skirt pattern.  I love the Clara's skirt, too!
 
How did your sewing go?  We had a nice, restful day today.  I've been working on a project in Garage Band - The Foggy Dew.  I'm also doing some sewing for Ma's and Ellen's trip...  oh, and while I was playing my accordion this afternoon, I sneezed and my chin smacked onto the top of the accordion.  It hurts. :(  ;)
 
Ta ta,

P.S. Remember, when we were making up the rules for the B.G.C. and we all had to have aliases?  You were Dale Evans, and I was Wendolene Roundsbottom, only I decided that was too strange an alias and so opted for Wildcat.  Anyway...;)

Sounds like a plan=)
 
Have you ever been on Sense & Sensibility Patterns?  They have a lot of really neat historical patterns!  I can't view all of them because silly Net Nanny won't let me:{  It blocks the dumbest things...  Anyway, the patterns I have seen look beautiful!  I would really like to get this one:)
We might want to order something from them at some point, too=)
 
My afternoon was very pleasant, and restful, although I didn't end up working on my skirt.  I'm still working on finishing Clara's present - it is absolutely darling, if I do say so myself!  I wish I could keep it:)
After I worked on sewing for a bit, I sat on my bed, crocheted, and watched movies for a while;) 
I can hardly wait to here what you've come up with on Garage Band!  We should work on recording a CD for our Grandpas soon...
Ouch.  Sorry about your chin:(  Aren't chins ridiculously sensitive?
 
Alright, my dear.  I think I should be getting to bed now...
 
Goodnight:)
 
~Miss-now-I-remember~
 
P.S. Yep, I remember now:)  Wendolene Roundsbottom was, admittedly, rather strange...I like Wildcat much better:)   Tilda's nickname was the best, though;)

Yes, I have!  I really like to look through the "show and tell" page for ideas and inspiration.  
 
Hmm, that would be just the thing to wear to our lawn party, wouldn't it?  (You know, the Epistemologically Self-conscious Independence Day Celebration Lawn Party;)  The one we never had.  Oh, well, there's always next year!)  
 
I can hardly wait to see Clara's present!  I'm sure it will be worth the suspense:)
Oh, that would be great fun to make a CD!  We should do that.  
 
Your loving friend who longs for the unparalleled joy of seeing you shortly,

Wouldn't it, though?!  Oh, yes, that lawn party...;)  We'll have to plan it for next year:)
 
It's not too late to have our Scottish party, though =D 
 
Hehe, I think we both enjoy secrets and surprises;)
 
We really should!  I was thinking we could try and make two - one with hymns and other songs, and maybe a Christmas one.  They don't have to be professional, so long as  they don't sound too bad:)
 
HTSYVVVVS;)
 
Your devoted and loving friend,

I have a few sewing projects like that...
"It'll be nice...when it's done";)
 
No, I'm not.  I don't remember seeing that, but I'd like to hear more=)
Are you a member?

Hehe. Yeah.
The forum is also run by Mrs. Chancey, and it a lot of fun, and very helpful as well! The sweet ladies and firls on there are always so willing to give advice, or ideas! And...its a great place to meet like-minded girls! :) You can share some of your projects (Or products!) on there as well.

http://forums.sensibility.com/

I've not actually been on there in a while, being rather consumed with school during the months leading up to my graduation, but I am Orangeblossomhoney on there. ;)

Y'all would probably enjoy at least reading the threads on there.

I have not been on the Sensibility forum, but I do think I'll go visit there some time.  It sounds like a lovely place to find inspiration and encouragement!
 
Yes, one would not be a true seamstress without having a half-dozen unfinished projects laying about.  It gives the joy of anticipation to see them finally finished;)  
I'd love to see your suede split skirts someday.  They sound gorgeous!  Yep, nothing like western for true style. :)
 
Have you graduated, then?  I remember you mentioning it as a rather daunting task, and I now know what you mean. =)  It is very exciting, though, to be preparing for a whole new phase in life, equipped with the Godly worldview given to us through our parents.

Hehehe. yes...half-finished projects are certainly a necessity. Someday, when I finish mine, I'll send you a picture of it. :)
Yes...I graduated last Sunday. It was such a fun day (After my speech was over with!) ;) Yes--We've been so blessed to have parents that took the time and made the sacrifice to give us an education that truly equips us for the years ahead. You don't realize how different your understanding is until you get a glimpse of what others have been taught...We have truly been blessed.

I will definitely have to check the forum out!  It sounds so pleasant - sewing advice, and like-minded girls.  What could be better?  Thank you so much for sharing the link:)
Your user name is cute;)
