Jenny-Rose update
Jenny-Rose update:

Stressed.
Overwhelmed.
Tired.
Wrists hurt.
SO behind in CC sewing it isn't funny.

Yeah, that about covers it.

After working on it ALL day yesterday and all morning this am my slideshow, notes and handout for the 18th century panel I'm doing with Loren and Kendra is done. *whew* That took way more time than I thought it would.

So I started sewing at 4:30pm today. I hemmed the Queen of the Night skirt, working on the waist band. I'm *this* close to being done with black fuzz. Yay!!

On the agenda tonight:
QotN waist band
let out side seams in QotN bodice
sew together panels for blue print skirt and ruffle
unpick blue print sleeves (they need to be taken in a bit)

If the night goes amazingly well:
take in and re attach blue print sleeves
pleat blue print skirt

Be prepared for updates this evening. I'm in the mood to celebrate these little victories by spamming my friend's list. :P

You'll never be done with black fuzz! Years later it'll emerge from your sewing machine to tickle your nose...

I think it took three years for my machine to finally stop spitting up velvet after the first time I used it :)

Me again!

Office Depot held up my order because they didn't have the number on the back of the card--nice of them to tell me! Anyway, the posterboard will be there on Wednesday, and the stand Friday. Fortunately, the posterboard will stand on its own so I don't really need the stand--I just got it because I wanted to flatten the posterboard. So it should be there soon! Thanks again :)

Ooh, good luck with all that! I hope to see lots of updates. And I was teetering on the edge of a lazy non-productive evening myself, but you've motivated me. So here's hoping for both of us!
