adventures in costuming
in the state of denial
I was supposed to go site-seeing with Bridget in DC yesterday (our last fling before she moves) but thanks to a wonky stomach and a headache I stayed home and sewed instead. I got the pimpernel toile apart and cut out version two. Not terribly exciting but progress.

In Fire news, we have wiped out AC Moore of red bugles (again) and it will be two weeks before they get more in. Did you know Michaels and Wal-mart don't carry red bugles? Other colors but not red. So I have two more places in town to try and then I'm not sure what. Order them online I guess and hope they get here in time. Moo!

I did find the perfect belt for the Fire at Kohls though. It wasn’t quite big enough so I bought two (they were on sale). I'll have to do a bit of chain linking to do but no more painting and gluing. Yay.

I leave for Dallas in 6 days. I am in SO much denial about how much I have left to sew for CC, it just isn't even funny.

Gee, I didn't know you were coming to Dallas; I'm just in the next county. Vacation? What's up?

Mary Kay convention (Seminar). I probably won't have time for visiting/site-seeing outside the MK event this year. I'm hoping to arrange for a longer visit (and get to meet some local costumers) next year though. :>

If you're desperate I could probably mail you some, I'm pretty sure I have some in the stash...

I mentioned this on another comment but wasn't sure you'd seen it - I was at Marilee's house for sewing the other day and realized I goofed on the pic I sent you of the fire mask. Oddiments, the company that made them, only listed one fire elemental mask on their site so I assumed it was the one Marilee had. Her's actually has the flames going more vertical and less horizontal. In many ways I think it's cooler. I'm trying to get her to send me a pic. Sorry for the mess up!

Looks like Sara will be able to get me some, if not I'll let you know - thanks! :>

Oh thanks for letting me know about the mask. I like the vertical much better anyway so no harm done. Really, as long as it doesn't clash color-wise with my frock I'm going to be thrilled with it! Thanks for letting me know though. :>

Oh do you know how it fastens, with ribbons? Or is it mounted on a stick?

This isn't the same as her mask but is a little closer to what it looks like:

You can do it! We all can do it! :o)

If you could point me to a picture of the bugle beads you need for the Fire, I could go see if we have them here and mail them to you this afternoon.

Oh Sara you are a doll! So sorry I couldn't get you this yesterday, it was stormy so we had to turn the computers off. Here is a pic of what I'm using:

Beader's Paradise, #3 Czech glass bugle beads in ruby. B says buy as many as you can, then just let me know what I owe you. :> Let me know what you find (or if you don't have time to send them now) so I know to keep looking or not. Thanks so much!

Awesome - I'll run down to my favorite bead shop when it opens in an hour and see what they have. I'll let you know as soon as I get home :o)
