On that note, here are my goals for the rest of the year:
- Finish that stinking embroidered pocket I started 2 years ago! Yes, yes, I know. It's a pocket how much time can it possibly take. Answer: 2 years! The good news is, its almost done. I just need to decide on a color combination for the center motif.
Progress so far.
- Finish the 1883 Bustle. I've conquered the sleevil on the blouse, but need to move the side seam forward a little. I think the easiest way to accomplish this is to add a bit to the center back. I don't want to mess with the armscye. Then it's on to the bodice, which is patterned but that's it.
- Put the finishing touches on the 3 ren-faire outfits I made for E, her bff, and a friend. All 3 were made in less than 2 weeks last September, so many shortcuts were employed.
The 3 matching dresses are the ones in need of help.
Despite all the ick that has been the last couple of years, a few good things did happen. God thing # 1, we got a new kitty! She and our original kitty became fast friends in just a couple of days. (Gratuitous Kitty photos)
Sebastian, AKA Mr. Fluffy Pants.
Awe....they love each other.
Another good thing, I finally have my own sewing room! It's a shame I haven't had much time to use it though. I'm still in the process of decorating it. I'd like to paint the desk white, it needs drapes something fierce and a new wall color would not be amiss. I'm thinking pink.
