My co-worker introduced me to the Tudors a series that was on HBO. She loaned me the first and 2nd second season DVDs of the Tudors. On December 23 while I was preparing for Christmas Eve dinner I decided to watch the first season. I was hook and before New Year Eve I watched the 2nd season. I went to the library and found the 3rd season and I bought season 4. The story of Henry VIII was not unfamiliar because I saw the Boleyn Girls at the movie last year, and that was related to the life of Henry the VIII. After watching the DVD I wanted to know about Henry VIII. It gets better I found this book at Barnes & Noble bookstore
on January 17 and it took me 4-days to read it. Since then I read another book regarding the Dark Story of the King and Queens of England and I have one more book to read on the same subject, however I am taking a break.
So far February started off with a bang. I made a reversible quilt for the little member of the family, I am going to make a few pillow cases to match and I bought a Roxy dress form for a great price $225.00. I went to the showroom located in East Brunswick, NJ. The dress form I wanted cost around $1500.00, I can't remember the name at the moment, but the dress form is made to your specific body measurement. And as luck will have it, the company is located in the same town where I live.
I will post pictures of my new dressform when I put it together.
