stripes & sisters
I managed to push through my day-long headache a bit to get some work done. (I'm getting tired of this ick. But then I'm always sick the week or two before CC. It's a tradition you know. It could be worse and be the coughing, congested sort of illness that makes airplane travel miserable I guess... although the current ick seems pretty miserable if you ask me.)

I traced out the master pattern for my black stripe jacket then cut it out. It took f-o-r-e-v-e-r because of the nature of the fabric (stripes!). I cut out each peice separately, instead of doubled fabric so that the stripes would match. It took me almost 4 hours, I think because my brain was not running on all cylinders. Still, I got it done.

While I was going crazy lining up stripes B called and we talked through the last tweaks of the tiara she is making me for my Pearl. Hands-free sets are the best! The tiara is looking amazing, not that I expected any less in my sister's capable hands. I sent her a box full of pearls and beads and things a few weeks ago, posted some pics of Regency tiaras I liked and gave her leave to do whatever with the initial design and she has blown me away. *sigh* My sis is the best.

And no dear ones, no pics until Gala night. 'Cause I'm mean like that!

You'll stun us all, I just know it. ;)

My only regret - that we won't see the Pearl by candlelight, because that would just be so special.

Ummm... candlelight. That would be fun. Perhaps we should have a candlelit Regency dinner in VA at some point. :>

*blushes* Thanks!

I can't wait to see the finished outfit, it's going to be just stunning, and B's tiara will be amazing too!

Oh it's so cool - you'll have to come over when it arrives and help me decide how to wear it and my hair style. I'm torn. :>
