Sunday, September 10th, 2006
I saw my mom off back home, safely on the train. She later called me to tell me that she found all these great coupons for attractions for not St. Louis, but for Jeffereson City, and that she is going to send them to me. Funny, she never mentioned she got home, I just noticed the caller ID on my phone.....
ACCKKKKKK!!!!! A dress that I have had less and less time to work on, Elizabeth called and said she wanted to get together today around noon. YIKES!!! So I have spent most of last night stitching like a madwoman to make it wearable. I did play hookie and went out to watch Andrew spin fire at the local beer and art festival last night when I should have been working. I ended up making up the difference at two in the morning until my quality of work was more ripping out stitches than putting them in.
I got up extra early to do the last bits of handsewing so that I was sure they would be neat and even.
I am cursing the fabric since it just is a magnentic field for all the dirt in my home. I feel like I am constantly finding a new spot. argggg.
I feel really aweful about not having the train done, but today is a fitting not a full assemble of dress....

On the other hand I am dying to start my new bustle patternhttp://www.agelesspatterns.com/LM112.gif the really neat one that sweeps out to hold a train. AND the dress that will go over it!!!!

But first I need to make Andrew a new pair of pants now that I have the pattern in the right size. I also want to make the Dore corset http://www.lafnmoon.com/victunder.htm the red one, in a brocade/tapestry to wear to fair in a couple of weeks.... I may or may not add straps......

current mood: exhausted
