sewing like it's going out of fashion :-P

Hello People,

Your girl's been a lil under the weather :(
Since the photo shoot on Thursday (which went very well, thank God) I've been sewing like it's going out of fashion (pardon the pun) :-) One of my tailors called in sick on Friday and with so many last minute dresses to deliver, I've had to work extra hard.
I must have overworked myself cos I woke up this morning with a severe headache and a bad cold, my body's way of telling me to slow down. I spent the entire morning in bed and I'm glad to report that I'm feeling a lot better. Still a little woozy from all the medication though...

I'm glad I was able to join Sunday service online at :-D
My church is one of the things I'm going to miss about Lagos. I love how the word is served in such practical and easy to apply terms. I've been a member for quite a few years, I even met my husband and got married here. I love the people, I love the music, I love the children's church, I really love the pastors too. Rev. Sam and his wife, Pastor Nike are loving and warm. I've made some dresses for Pastor Nike over the years. Here's a pic I found in my archive

It's made out of black and white lace and black taffeta..
Thanks to facebook, I found these

I remember when Rev. Sam came to Houston last year! I had been away from Nigeria for about 5 months and was homesick. I had just dropped Nathan off at daycare that Monday morning and was driving past Dominion International Center on Beechnut when I saw the billboard advertising the conference my pastor was speaking at. I was ecstatic!!! It was in my neck of the woods and I was able to attend two of the sessions. Thank God I can join the services online...

I'm waiting on the amazing photographer, Babasola for the pics of the photo shoot.
Here are a couple of pics I took on my phone. I'll post the official ones as soon as I get them.

Here's me with a LOT of make up :)
Thanks for coming by again and again.
