life is never simple
I'm sewing again... almost anyway! I actually got as far as setting up the table, getting out the fabric and digging around for patterns. That is when I discovered that I didn't have the pattern I needed for B's pirate skirt (today's main project). Blah I say!

So I went to Jo-Anns (for the second time today) who didn't have the right size then to Hancock’s who did have the size and a $.99 sale. So the extra few miles weren't a complete waste. :> I also picked up a few more bridal tiara bases. My Hancock’s is clearancing all their bridal and I have a feeling these bases will come in handy someday. *wink* I have some vague concepts of Titanic hair cages or maybe an elvish headpiece...

Anyway so now I'm back to being tired. I'm not having one of my better days, headache etc but I'm determined to get some sewing done or die in the attempt. The clock is counting down for the ball & ren faire. I really need to get my butt in gear!

...a few minutes later...
Okay I'm off to start cutting things out. I looked at isiswardrobe's ball pics again and am suddenly not as tired. Inspiration is a wonderful thing. :>

Those ball pics are great! Now I really want an 18c gown!

Yeah, if those pics don't make you start dreaming of wearing an 18th century something, nothing will! :>
