The Weekend... going out and hoops

We had a fabulous weekend... even though I am bruised up a bit! I'll get to that later...


First we started Friday night off with going out to dinner and then stopping by Mirage... It was nice to see our friends. I've not really been in the mood to go there since I got SO burnt out on dancing there... But... I wanted to see 2 things at Mirage! First... here on the right is Sonja doing her Bellydance/Hoop fusion number... It was SO cute!! I loved it! (I don't know why I can't make this pic bigger!!!)

Here below is me n' my Bald Man. I am wearing a pair of copied Jeans I made a couple of months ago...




Next thing I wanted to see at Mirage was a costume I made a few years ago that Sonja bought last week from me.
It looks great on her and I'm very happy to see it "dance on"!






Now lets talk hoops! I went to a hooping workshop Saturday and Sunday taught by the amazing Jewels !!! Make sure to check out her site and her videos.. she's an awesome hoop dancer! Her workshop was so fun, informative... and a workout!!!! Each day was two hours... hooping is a great workout!! But after 4 hours of hooping I am left very sore and a little bruised!!!!


Here's Sonja getting her 'hoopbliss' going...








Here's Kim... me and Kim had a little trouble getting our 'hoopbliss' going! lol!!
But we'll get there!!!
I can honestly say I have never had so much fun doing something that I am not good at!!!

Sewing!!!! I plan to finish up my shirt today!! I have to work tomorrow... but for the rest of the week I have a pair of jeans all cut out and ready to sew! They are copied from a pair of my RTW jeans. They have a very unique detail.... no waist band.. they have facings instead. I can't wait to start them! More later....

I'm SOOO jealous about this weekend! L~ started getting sick Sat late morning and I really thought she'd be over it! Not so... she had to stay home from school today and had to visit her pediatrician. This was not how I had this weekend planned! And I've been working on hooping all week! Ah, well... Sonja promised to teach me... *Sigh*
