    The Fancy Pants

    I have finally uploaded some pictures of Tim's slops to Flickr, and also a short update to his journal, Tim's Fancy Pants.  Now, I am off to bed, to see if I can't sleep out some of this sick.  -bleh-


    More Wedding Pictures and a Contest

    I've been a busy girl lately.  There is much sewing, of course, but I also had time to go to the opening of a play my husband directed, and participate in Your Wardrobe Unlock'd's Double Period Pattern Project.  A week ago I won my category, of Best Experienced Naturalform Dress, with my wedding dress, and tomorrow we find out who won the over best of show!  There are only five of us, and everything is really fabulous.  I am so excited.

    Today, Clay got up some of the "Official Wedding" pictures!  The color is really spectacular, and he says I should have the rest by next weekend! Yea!  I can't wait to see them.  Then I can finally have some copies made and sent off to relatives who couldn't come.  It is already a great week, and it is only Monday. 

    There is about to be a lot of activity on the Tim's Fancy Pants project.  Have to have that done before I leave for GA at the end of the month.

    What am I typing for, back to sewing.




    I should have been working on any number of other things, but I decided to play with reproducing some passementerie appliques I had seen online. originals I think thise are lovely, bt they really inspired me to try it on my own.  I went and picked up some braided cord, nylon thread, and some beads.  Then I went about wasting utilizing a couple of hours in creative inspiration.  Yea, that's it!

    If you are interested in more how-to or just more pictures, there you go.





    Some New Additions

    Winter Wraps for Tea

    Hi there!  Been working on so many projects, and not really taking the time to update.  Tomorrow is all about updating more entrys.  I need to finish the Wedding so I can enter it in the YWU contest, and I really should update my personal blog sometime this new decade.

    In this picture is everything I need to sew, including tea.  This one happens to be a cardamom spiced chai.  This is me hand-sewing the trim to the collar of Denise's Talma. 

    For your perusal pleasure are the winter wraps I made for the Victorian tea we are going to Milwaukee for.  With the Giesens and 16 other friends.  Hehe, they will be surprised.  You can read all about them in this journal Winter Wraps for Tea.
