Okay, guys. I'm so nervous about writing this that I'm all shaky, but here we go.
I said a little about Rich in my last entry, and about how sweet it was that he'd looked up how to take Jackson to the UK just-in-case things got serious. Well, they're getting serious. Of course, the thing is...we've never met. We've talked over IM and video chatted on Skype, but we've never been in the same room together.
But it's serious enough that the next thing that needs to be done is that I need to go to England. (We've discussed; the best option is for me to go, even though I know a lot of people are saying 'screw that! make him come here!') I'm already arranging my time off requests, but the next thing is to buy a ticket. Right now, I can't afford that.
I'm not going to ask for donations, because if things don't work out long-term essentially I'd be asking for people to pay me to go on a week-long vacation to England to do nothing but hang out with some friends. However, I have a few historical garments I'd be happy to sell at a fair price, and a LOT of fabric I can put up for grabs, too. I'm going to start here because you guys are my besties, but in the next week this'll all go up on Etsy:
This one didn't go in the last round, so I'm asking $120 OBO. Silk chiffon/charmeuse/dupioni, hand & machine sewing, non-ick synthetic lace, two pieces. Closes with zippers and skirt hooks/bars. Worn once.( More under the cut. )
